On this Day in History: December 30 1924 - American Astronomer Edwin Hubble Announces the Existence of Other Galaxies Working from the Mount Wilson Observatory 20 miles to the northeast of Los Angeles, astronomer Edwin Hubble revealed stunning findings on December 30, 1924: the Milky Way Galaxy was not the only one in the universe. Using a 100-inch telescope and a decade-old method for determining the distance a star was from Earth, Hubble shattered the world’s understanding of the cosmos. Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, Hubble had a reputation for being a fantastic athlete. When he moved up to the University of Chicago after graduating high school, he excelled academically -- so much so he received a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford, where he earned a master’s degree in jurisprudence. He returned from England in 1913 and set up a law practice in his hometown of Louisville, teaching and coaching basketball at a nearby high school across the Ohio River in Indiana. Tapping into a fascination with scienc ...
ASTRONOMY MAGAZINE The March, 2013, issue of Astronomy Magazine was an interesting one. I have bought this magazine off and on ever since it began. David J. Eicher is the editor, and Kalmbach Publishing out of Waukesha, Wisconsin, is the publisher. Several articles caught my eye. LIZ KRUESI wrote one called "How Astronomer's Know the Universe's Age." They know the universe is 13.7 billion years old, but how did they arrive at that age? Kruesi begins by saying the universe is older than the objects in it and that the original stars are gone. The sun is a third generation star and contains more heavy elements than previous generations. Astronomers determine the age of stars by measuring the amounts of uranium-238 and thorium-232. The oldest star known is HE 1523-0901 at 13.2 billion years. Kruesi tackles the Hubble constant. This is the rate at which the universe expands. Edwin Hubble overestimated his constant. It took Wendy Freedman's team to come up with a constant of 74.3 kilometers per second per megap ...

3 Things to be Grateful 4 today, Day 6 1. For those who came b4 me who added knowledge to my understanding of this world around me. Galileo, Nicolaus Copernicus, Isaac Newton, the E=MC2 guy, Edwin Hubble, and so many other scientist whose discoveries let me have a better understanding of this universe that we are but a very very very small part of and to realised that the universe does not revolve around us. If 2moro the Milky Way, the galaxy that our Solar System is in, with its 300 or so billion stars, of which our sun is but just one of the star, is destroyed or disappear, "WoW! Not." there will still be another 100 to 200 billion galaxies each with a few million to billion of stars still in existence in the observable universe. So seriously, we are not that significant or important in the universal system of things. It is this Awakening knowledge, which these scientists have each contributed in part that put the challenges in my insignificant life into their relativity perspective. The Sun does not re ...
This was written in the Quran all the time but Edwin Hubble just verified this.

Hedgehog or Fox? Scientists come in two varieties, hedgehogs and foxes... foxes know many tricks, hedgehogs only one. Foxes are broad, hedgehogs are deep. Foxes are interested in everything and move easily from one problem to another. Hedgehogs are only interested in a few problems that they consider fundamental, and stick with the same problems for years or decades. Most of the great discoveries are made by hedgehogs, most of the little discoveries by foxes. Science needs both hedgehogs and foxes for its healthy growth, hedgehogs to dig deep into the nature of things, foxes to explore the complicated details of our marvelous universe. Albert Einstein and Edwin Hubble were hedgehogs. Charley Townes, who invented the laser, and Enrico Fermi, who built the first nuclear reactor in Chicago, were foxes. — Freeman Dyson In 'The Future of Biotechnology', A Many-Colored Glass: Reflections on the Place of Life in the Universe

The Hubble Space Telescope ( HST) is a space telescope that was carried into orbit by a Space Shuttle in 1990 and remains in operation. A 2.4- meter (7.9 ft) aperture telescope in low Earth orbit, Hubble's four main instruments observe in the near ultraviolet , visible , and near infrared spectra. The telescope is named after the astronomer Edwin Hubble. Hubble's orbit outside the distortion of Earth's atmosphere allows it to take extremely high-resolution images with almost no background light. Hubble's Deep Field has recorded some of the most detailed visible-light images ever, allowing a deep view into space and time. Many Hubble observations have led to breakthroughs in astrophysics , such as accurately determining the rate of expansion of the universe . Although not the first space telescope, Hubble is one of the largest and most versatile, and is well known as both a vital research tool and a public relations boon for astronomy . The HST was built by the United States space agency NASA , with contri ...
The answers were right in front of you the entire time Brian. Su Mole. Paine Webber Company Paine Webber and Company was an American stock brokerage and asset management firm that was acquired by the Swiss bank UBS AG in 2000. The company was founded in 1880 in Boston, Massachusetts, by William Alfred Paine and Wallace G. Webber. Founder: William A. Paine Founded: 1881 - A nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. Originally, nebula was a name for any diffuse astronomical object, including galaxies beyond the Milky Way. The Andromeda Galaxy, for instance, was referred to as the Andromeda Nebula (and spiral galaxies in general as "spiral nebulae") before the true nature of galaxies was confirmed in the early 20th century by Vesto Slipher, Edwin Hubble and others. Nebulae are often star-forming regions, such as in the Eagle Nebula. This nebula is depicted in one of NASA's most famous images, the "Pillars of Creation". In these regions the formations of gas, dust, an ...

The Expanding Universe In 1925, American astronomer Edwin Hubble, provided observational evidence that all galaxies are moving away from one another, which implies that the universe is expanding. The expansion of the universe is now an established scientific fact. This is what the Qur’an says regarding the nature of the universe: “With power and skill did We construct the Firmament: For it is We Who create the vastness of Space.” [Al-Qur’an 51:47] The Arabic word musioon is correctly translated as ‘expanding it’, and it refers to the creation of the expanding vastness of the universe. One of the greatest astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, in his book, ‘A Brief History of Time’, says, “The discovery that the universe is expanding was one of the great intellectual revolutions of the 20th century.” The Qur’an mentioned the expansion of the universe, before man even learnt to build a telescope! Some may say that the presence of astronomical facts in the Qur’an is not surprising since the ...
Found: A Corner of the Cosmos -nice article on the Yerkes Observatory, the largest refracting 40in telescope For the entirety of human history, we have been fascinated by the stars and planets that dot the sky. It’s only recently that we have been able to get close to space and begin to understand its amazing properties. When I first saw this 1919 picture of nebulae in the Pleiades, I was surprised to see such an old photograph of distant stars. To think that an image like this was published just a year shy of the end of the first World War and over 40 years before the first man stepped foot in outer space seems almost beyond comprehension. The image was taken at the Yerkes Observatory in Williams Bay, Wisconsin. Yerkes has the largest refracting telescope—all glass lenses, no mirrors—in the world. It also has been the home for numerous astronomical discoveries and a place of research for famous individuals such as Edwin Hubble, Carl Sagan and Albert Einstein (pictured below). Yerkes was founded in ...
January 29, 1902 - Twenty-seven men; including the President of the United States, the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, and the president of the National Academy of Sciences; met in the office of the Secretary of State. They had been assembled at the request of Andrew Carnegie who was, with a $10 million endowment, establishing an independent research organization that would increase basic scientific knowledge. The group elected Daniel C. Gilman, who had been president of Johns Hopkins University, to be the first president of the Carnegie Institution. Well known Carnegie researchers have included: Edwin Hubble (astronomy), Charles Richter (geology), and 2006 Nobel laureate Andrew Fire. The Carnegie Institution is headquartered in Washington, D.C., Richard A. Meserve serves as president.
in 1949, the Hale telescope at Palomar Observatory sees first light under the direction of Edwin Hubble,
Scientists believe that our universe began with one enormous explosion of energy and light, which we now call the Big Bang. This was the singular start to everything that exists. The beginning of the universe, the start of space, and even the initial start of time itself. Nothing we observe today existed prior to that exact moment. Further, it was something outside of time, outside of space, and outside of matter that caused all of this to come into existence. The realization that our universe started, and did not always exist, brings enormous challenges to nontheistic scientists. Are scientists certain of this Big Bang Theory? Yes. In the late 1920's, astronomer Edwin Hubble saw through his telescope that galaxies (some millions of light years away) were hurtling away from each other at fantastic speeds. This was not caused by some force thrusting them away from each other. Rather, they were still moving as a result of a primeval explosion, all from one point of origin. In this point of origin, all the m ...
Astronomy Ireland New Year Lecture 'Einstein and the Expanding Universe' Tonight at 8pm in Trinity college Dublin Where did it all come from? Why are there stars, planets, and galaxies? What was the Big Bang? How will the Universe eventually end? Almost 14 billion years ago the entire Universe was extremely small and hot, and it began to rapidly expand. This event is known as the Big Bang. As the Universe grew, it gradually cooled down enough to allow energy turn into matter and light as we know it now, which in turn formed the first stars and galaxies. We know this happened because we can see the Universe still expanding: our telescopes can spot distant galaxies rushing away at great speeds. The discovery by Edwin Hubble in 1929 of a linear relation between the redshift of the spiral nebulae and their distance marked one of the great advances of 20th century astronomy. A number of theoreticians interpreted the discovery as evidence for a universe of expanding radius, including Albert Einstein. In this ta ...
You’d be hard pressed to start a story of cosmology and not pay homage to two people: Edwin Hubble and Georges Lemaitre. By 1930, other cosmologists (including Eddington, Willem de Sitter, and Einstein) had concluded that the paradigm of a static (non-evolving) model of the universe (which they had worked on together, for many years) was unsatisfactory. Edwin Hubble, using the world’s largest telescope at Mt. Wilson in California, had demonstrated that the distant galaxies all appeared to be receding from us at speeds proportional to their distances. It was at this point that Lemaître drew Eddington’s attention to his earlier paper, in which he had derived and explained the relation between the distance and the recession velocity of galaxies. Eddington at once called the attention of other cosmologists to Lemaître’s 1927 paper and arranged for the publication of an English translation. Together with Hubble’s observations, Lemaître’s paper convinced the majority of astronomers that the unive ...

Top 10 Scientific Laws and Theories that you Should Really Know.. 10.Big Bang Theory If you're going to know one scientific theory, make it the one that explains how the universe arrived at its present state. Based on research performed by Edwin Hubble, Georges Lemaitre and Albert Einstein, among others, the Big Bang Theory postulates that the universe began almost 14 billion years ago with a massive expansion event. At the time, the universe was confined to a single point, encompassing all of the universe's matter. That original movement continues today, as the universe keeps expanding outward. The theory of the Big Bang gained widespread support in the scientific community after Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson discovered cosmic microwave background radiation in 1965. Using radio telescopes, the two astronomers detected cosmic noise, or static, that didn't dissipate over time. Collaborating with Princeton researcher Robert Dicke, the pair confirmed Dicke's hypothesis that the original Big Bang left behind ...
This verse have two meanings. 1st that universe is expanding, and 2nd that new stars are born. Lets check them both with modern science. 1st. In 1929, Edwin Hubble using the newly constructed 100" telescope at Mount Wilson discovered that our Universe is expanding at an alarming rate. Galaxies are going away from each other. Even our moon is getting away from earth every year. 2nd. Today we know that new stars are born in the regions of space which are called nebula. Though concept of nebula is old but Nebulae were discovered soon after serious studies of the sky were begun in the 18th century by Charles Messier, who was searching for comets and would often stumble across faint smudges of light which he identified in a catalog of "some 100 objects you should ignore" as 'not comets'. His first entry was 'M1' the Crab Nebula, in 1758. So no matter what meaning you take from expanding universe. Both are true. SubhanAllah
I'm reading A Universe from Nothing by the physicist Lawrence Krauss. Early in the book he introduces Edwin Hubble by saying, "[He] continues to give me great faith in humanity, because he started out as a lawyer and then became an astronomer." There's hope for you yet Dan Roth and Marcus Reed :-)

It s been  over 80 years since Einstein attended the only seance of his life. What could have persuaded Einstein, harbinger of the scientific age, to attend such an unscientific event? By 1930 Einstein was one of the most famous people on the planet. His general theory of relativity (with a little help from E=mc2) had thrust him into the spotlight as the foremost proponent of the new scientific age. Knowing of his plans to leave Germany, the world's leading universities tried to tempt him to their campuses. It was the offer from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, on the outskirts of Los Angeles, that proved most enticing, thanks to their top astronomer, Edwin Hubble, who had seen distant galaxies streaking away from Earth through his 100in telescope. Here was proof that the universe was expanding, an observation that refuted Einstein's view of the universe as a fixed sphere. Intrigued, he and his wife travelled west in 1931. In Pasadena, the 51-year-old Einstein found solace in ...

The Gleaner recently highlighted debates between science and religion. However, I believe Jamaica's problems lie in our lack of creative thinking to develop ideas and embrace new approaches to contribute to our technological and scientific development due to poor performances in mathematics in our schools. History has shown that many of the scientific theories that we now embrace were developed by religious persons, sometimes in opposition to their religious leaders. We all know of the Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus who revolutionized science and the concept of the universe with his heliocentric theory of planetary movement; Charles Darwin's theory of evolution; Galileo Galilei who built the first astronomical telescope in 1609; Isaac Newton's laws of motion and universal gravitation; and perhaps the most controversial in the twenty-first century that many Jamaicans might not have known, the ''Big Bang'' theory accepted by most astronomers was originally proposed by a priest, Fr.

What is the Big Bang? The Big Bang is a theory that explains how the Universe began twelve to fifteen billion years ago. Until this century, most people believed that the Universe had no beginning. It had always just been there. Then in the 1920’s, Edwin Hubble, a famous astronomer, discovered something that led to the Big Bang Theory. He found that the Universe is expanding in every direction. He also discovered that galaxies twice as far away from us are moving away twice as fast. Something BIG had to cause this movement. The Universe is expanding from the force of a huge explosion--the Big Bang. Before the explosion there was nothing. Just emptiness. Then a huge fireball--the Primordial Fireball--exploded. The fireball was unbelievably hot and bright. It sent out radiation. It's hard to believe, but in an instant all matter was created. Then bits of matter began to cool and form atoms. We think that hydrogen formed first. Helium was formed soon after that. As the Universe expanded and cooled, giant c ...

101 Scientific Facts & Foreknowledge Psalm 19:1-3 – The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Jeremiah 10:12 – He has made the earth by His power, He has established the world by His wisdom, and has stretched out the heavens at His discretion. Romans 1:20 – For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. Science means knowledge, and true science always agrees with the observable evidence. Scientific research continues to unfold the wonders and mysteries of our universe. Interestingly, there is one book that has anticipated many of these scientific facts. That book is the Bible. This booklet presents 101 scientific facts found in the Scriptures. Many of these facts were penned centuries before ...
Up until about 1900 AD, the entire universe was believed to be contained in just one place, what we now call the Milky Way galaxy. There was nothing else. Nothing outside of it. In the early 1900's, Edwin Hubble was observing a phenomenon called 'nebula' which had been documented in text since ancient times. It was believed that these 'nebula' (Latin for "cloud") were little more than clouds of dust and hydrogen gas often from which stars are born. But while observing some nebula, Hubble noticed Cepheid Variable stars which are useful for measuring distance based on the amount the light from these stars are shifted toward the red end of the color spectrum. By carefully measuring the 'red shift' of these variable stars in certain nebula, Hubble found that they were huge distances away and could not be in the Milky Way galaxy. One of these so-called nebula was called the Andromeda Nebula. Hubble realized that these extremely distant nebula had to be entire galaxies at unimaginable distances away. Now we kno ...
I visited the 100-inch Hooker telescope at the Mount Wilson Observatory in California. This is the telescope that Edwin Hubble used to discover the general expansion of the universe (i.e. the universe is constantly expanding.) Very cool.
My interest in lead me to Tycho brahe, Kepler, Copernicus, Galilei, Edmund Halley, Newton, Edwin Hubble. Who you today?
I know some of you would not be interested in what I have to say, but i'd like to take a moment to show appreciation to all leading men of science to whom we owe a great thanks. They helped shaped the world as we know it by sacrificing their time, families and lives for the purpose of evolution and progress. Among these distinguished men are Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Neils Bohr, Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud, Galileo Galilei, Antoine Laurent Lavoisier, Johannes Kepler, Nicolaus Copernicus, Michael Faraday, James Clerk Maxwell, Claude Bernard, Pierre Simon de Laplace, Edwin Hubble , Joseph J. Thomson, Leonard Euler, Erwin Schrodinger, Richard Feynman, Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking and many more. Don't take anything for granted. End the violence and wars. These are people you should consider as leaders. They lead you to the future, war criminals lead you to the past...
The night sky presents the viewer with a picture of a calm and unchanging Universe. So the 1929 discovery by Edwin Hubble that the Universe is in fact expanding at enormous speed was revolutionary. Hubble noted that galaxies outside our own Milky Way were all moving away from us, each at a speed pro...
05.29.2013: 1) Chickens have the potential to be more intelligent than dogs and cats. Chickens are also able to anticipate future events based on past occurrences, demonstrate self-control, and feel stress. 2) Alexander the Great used live pigs on fire to defeat other nations that used war elephants. 3) Massaging the earlobe will stimulate the nerves in the ear, which will trigger a reflex in the throat. This causes a tiny muscle spasm that can scratch your throat when it itches. 4) You cannot legally watch MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech for free. 5) The Big Bang Theory was actually first theorized by a Catholic priest named Monseigneur Georges Henri Joseph Edouard Lemaitre, who was also an astronomer and professor of physics at the Catholic University of Louvain. He was the first to derive the Hubble law and the first to make the estimation of the Hubble constant, which he published in 1927, two years before Edwin Hubble's article.

The young scientist demolished the old guard's ideas on the nature and size of the universe
How a young Edwin Hubble demolished old ideas about the universe:
Yesterday, I watched several videos about astronomy and particle physics, including a few about dark matter and dark energy. I find the whole topic fascinating. I had forgotten that it has been less than 100 years since Earthlings believed there was only one galaxy, our Milky Way. It was in the 1920s that Edwin Hubble (after whom the space telescope is named), photographed distant galaxies and proved there are more than one. Now, we estimate that there are around 170 billion visible galaxies. It's going to be really interesting when dark matter and dark energy is finally identified and at least partially understood. What changes will occur due to that new information over the next 100 years? Fascinating.
The Crisis in Cosmology Today’s crisis in Cosmology is perhaps best demonstrated by an apparently accelerating expansion of the universe where a ‘Dark Energy’ must be postulated to justify this extraordinary acceleration...

A Universe Full of Surprises JUST a century ago, scientists believed that the entire universe was contained within our galaxy, the Milky Way. During the 20th century, however, major advances in astronomy, physics, and technology revealed the breathtaking scale of the cosmos. Some of the discoveries have also been humbling. For example, in recent decades astronomers have come to the realization that they do not know what makes up over 90 percent of the universe. What is more, the discoveries that led to that conclusion have caused scientists to question their understanding of the fundamentals of physics itself. Of course, such questions are nothing new. For instance, toward the end of the 19th century, physicists observed something odd about the speed of light. They found that relative to an observer, light always traveled at the same speed no matter how fast the observer was moving. But that seemed to defy common sense! The problem was addressed in 1905 in Albert Einstein’s special theory of relati ...
In the 1920s, an astronomer named Edwin Hubble noticed something interesting. The velocity of a star appeared to be proportional to its distance from the Earth. In other words, the further away a star was from Earth, the faster it appeared to move away from us. Hubble theorized that this meant the universe itself was expanding. Hubble's discovery led to a lengthy debate that still rages today: what exactly is the relation between a distant celestial body's velocity and its distance from the observer? Cosmologists call this relationship the Hubble constant, but no one agrees on what that relationship is. Hubble theorized that it was 464 kilometers (km) per second (sec) per megaparsec (Mpc). A megaparsec is a unit of distance equal to more than 3.08 x 1022 meters (or 1.9 x 1019 miles). It turns out Hubble overestimated this number. That's because in Hubble's time, astronomical instruments weren't sensitive enough to measure the distance between the Earth and celestial bodies with accuracy. As instruments im ...

how science works.In the 16th century Copernicus devised Heliocentrism (a fully predictive mathematical model of a heliocentric system) the astronomical model in which the Earth and planets revolve around a relatively stationary Sun at the centre of the Solar System. heliocentrism was opposed to geocentrism, which placed the Earth at the centre. Later that century Galileo proved heliocentrism using a telescope which he had invented along with complex mathematical equations Galileo and Copernicus were part right and part wrong, the earth does orbit the sun, but the sun is not the centre of the universe. But they didn't know that. The difference is that Galileo and Copernicus would have been overjoyed to be proven wrong, that's science.as we advanced William Herschel, Friedrich Bessel, and other astronomers realised that the sun was not the centre of the universe and by the 1920s Edwin Hubble had shown that it was part of a galaxy (the Milky Way) that was only one of many billions of suns and galaxies.
I claim the earth is the center of the universe because of Edwin Hubble's statement.
Edwin Hubble may not be a household word, but most school children have heard about the Space Telescope named after him. We have probably heard of the need of this device requiring “glasses” of sorts; an error was made in the optics which required a special shuttle mission to correct. And correct it...

Hubble’s Law For thousands of years, astronomers wrestled with basic questions concerning the universe. Until the early 1920’s, it was believed that the universe had always been in existence; also, that the size of the universe was fixed and not changing. However, in 1912, the American astronomer, Vesto Slipher, made a discovery that would soon change astronomers’ beliefs about the universe. Slipher, noticed that the galaxies were moving away from earth at huge velocities. These observations provided the first evidence supporting the expanding-universe theory.[1] Before the invention of the telescope in 1608, man could do little more than wonder about the origin of the universe. (Courtesy: NASA) In 1916, Albert Einstein formulated his General Theory of Relativity that indicated that the universe must be either expanding or contracting. Confirmation of the expanding-universe theory finally came in 1929 in the hands of the well known American astronomer Edwin Hubble. By observing redshifts[2] in ...
I've learned some interesting things about the town of my childhood, Wheaton, Ill. During my time there it was mostly known as the home of Wheaton College, where Billy Graham went to college. Edwin Hubble, the astronomer as well as John and James Belushi, and Bob Woodward graduated from the high school. Phil Vischer, the creator of Veggie Tales lives there now. I suspect I would never be able to live there again, Wheaton is listed by Money Magazine as one of the twenty-five highest earning towns in the U.S. with a median family income of $107,763 and the median house worth $328,886. While I lived there and until 1985 Wheaton was a dry town, that is the sale of alcohol in restaurants, stores, etc. was not allowed. I guess it didn't hurt that much.
I found out the other day that a cousin of mine through my grandmother's Elliot family of Bloomington, Indiana is the famous astronomer Edwin Hubble, which the Hubble Space Telescope is named. Like myself, Edwin loved to fish. So I can see the relationship makes sense.

When Albert Einstein developed the Theory of General Relativity, it predicted a possible expansion of the universe. Georges Lemaitre thought that this indicated the universe began in a single point. The name "Big Bang" was given by Fred Hoyle while mocking the theory during a radio broadcast. In 1929, Edwin Hubble discovered a redshift in distant galaxies, indicating that they were receding from Earth. Cosmic background microwave radiation, discovered in 1965, supported Lemaitre's theory.
