Hubble Data Suggests   On In The Universe

'Something Weird' Is Going

Decades worth of data

 from the Hubble Space Telescope has produced a new, more accurate measurement of the expansion rate of the universe.

The new examination of data 

from the 32-year-old Hubble Space Telescope attempts to identify how quickly the universe expands, and at which rate it is accelerating through a number called the Hubble Constant 

The number is a notoriously

tough one to pin down because different observatories looking at different areas of the universe have produced different results

 The Hubble constant is a very

 special number. It can be used to thread a needle from the past to the present for an end-to-end test of our understanding of the universe.

The team analyzed 42

 of the supernova milepost markers with Hubble that are seen exploding at a rate of about one per year. 

Team prediccted 

a  value for the Constant of 67.5 plus or minus 0.5 kilometers per second per megaparsec.
