Following our previous work, we conclude that a GRB standard candle constructed from the Ghirlanda et al. power-law relation between the geometry-corrected energy (E_gamma) and the peak of the rest-frame prompt burst spectrum (E_p) is not yet cosmographically useful, despite holding some potential advantages over SNe Ia. This is due largely to the small sample of \~20 GRBs with the required measured redshifts, jet-breaks, and peak energies, and to the strong sensitivity of the goodness-of-fit… Expand
