Hubble’s Law

wikipedia1

According to Wikipedia …

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a telescope in orbit around the Earth, named after astronomer Edwin Hubble for his discovery of galaxies outside the Milky Way and his creation of Hubble’s Law, which calculates the rate at which the universe is expanding. Its position outside the Earth’s atmosphere allows it to take sharp optical images of very faint objects, and since its launch in 1990, it has become one of the most important instruments in the history of astronomy. It has been responsible for many ground-breaking observations and has helped astronomers achieve a better understanding of many fundamental problems in astrophysics. Hubble’s Ultra Deep Field is the deepest (most sensitive) astronomical optical image ever taken. For more, check it out here: Hubble Space Telescope
