    century, most astronomers thought that our Universe was confined to the Milky Way Galaxy alone. However, Edwin Hubble's inspiration and perseverance in astronomical research proved otherwise. He discovered the existence of other galaxies and created a systematical classification for all galaxies. Additionally, he mathematically confirmed that his newly discovered universe was expanding. Hubble's astronomical triumphs earned him worldwide scientific honors and pioneered our modern cosmology. Edwin

    college the first thing that came to mind was astronomy. Astronomy peaked his curiosity. His father had a realistic view on his son’s career. Due to the respect he had for his father, Hubble studied law. Not only did he study law but he studied literature and Spanish. After passing the bar, he practiced law in Kentucky for a year. In 1913, he moved on to become an educator at the New Albany High School in Indiana. Edwin taught Math, Spanish and Physics. So his father knew certain careers would allow

    This observation means that it has taken every galaxy the same amount of time to move from a starting position to its current position. This observation is called "Hubble's Law," named after Edwin Hubble (1889-1953) who discovered this in 1929. Edwin Hubble’s evidence supports the expansion of the universe and suggests that the universe was once compacted. Third, if the universe was insanely hot as the Big Bang suggests, scientists should be able to find some

    age he compromised. All of Hubble’s work and Sandage work was done on the 100-in telescope, yet Hubble was still able to find the Andromeda Nebulae’s distance for the Milky Way and study red shifts. While the 200-in. telescope was being built, Hubble asked if he could use the telescope for half of its available time. This shows his devotion because he wanted to use the telescope in order to further enhance his research (17).      Edwin Hubble’s curiosity about the universe

    today by astronomers that the universe is still expanding. Universe, Martin Rees- September 17, 2012, Penguin – Publisher. In 1929 Edwin Hubble was able to correlate the distance in the universe with their velocities, a relation known as Hubble’s Law. Big Bang theorists later used this information to approximate the age of the Universe at about 15 billion years old, which is consistent with the other measurements of the age of the universe. According to radio astronomers Arno Penzias and

  • The Controvercial Big Bang Theory

    and it's very controversial. First, let's start with the theory. The Big Bang was first formed by Georges Lemaitre. He is the first person to actually propose this theory. He also derived "Hubble's Law". Hubble's Law helps estimate the rate of expansion of the universe. The equation is H=v/d where H is Hubble's constant, v is the velocity of the galaxy, and d is the distance from the earth. Even though it seems that he is a 24 hour scientist, he is, however, a Belgian priest. This theory is believed

    Big Bang Theory - The Premise The Big Bang theory is an effort to explain what happened at the very beginning of our universe. Discoveries in astronomy and physics have shown beyond a reasonable doubt that our universe did in fact have a beginning. Prior to that moment there was nothing; during and after that moment there was something: our universe. The big bang theory is an effort to explain what happened during and after that moment. According to the standard theory, our universe sprang into

    The Big Bang Theory Why is the Universe expanding? What is Cosmic Back Ground Radiation (CBR)? There are many questions asked about our Universe, which we know so little about. Scientists, in their attempt to answer these and other confrontations, have found one idea that seems to explain much of what we don't understand: The Big Bang Theory. An explosion of incomprehensible speed was the beginning of our known Universe and existence. At that time matter as small as the head of a pin inflated

    outlook and how to apply the science to my faith. The Big Bang theory was introduced by Georges Lemaître a Belgian Catholic Priest in 1927. Lemaître expanded upon previous universe knowledge by concluding The Big Bang from research in the Hubble Law. The basis of the Big Bang is deriving from the redshifting of distant stars and galaxies. Redshifting is the change of light which shows the chemical makeup, movement, and distance the particular star or galaxy is from us. Using this knowledge Lemaître
