and † Distant redshifted SNe1a light sources from the Universe that are usually interpreted as cosmological redshifts are shown to be universal gravitational redshifts seen by all observers in the quantum celestial mechanics (QCM) approach to cosmology. The increasingly negative QCM gravitational potential dictates a non-linear redshift with distance and an apparent gravitational repulsion. No space expansion is necessary. QCM is shown to pass the test of the five kinematical
