Another Look at the Hubble Constant

A new measurement of the expansion rate of the Universe could have far-reaching consequences to our understanding of the Cosmos.

The Hubble constant is one of the critical calculations which astronomers and astrophysicists use to determine the nature of the Universe. One of the great challenges faced by researchers today is determining the exact value of this number. Various means of measuring the Hubble Constant produce different results, suggesting different possible pasts, and futures, for our Universe and everything in it.
