Hubble Data Suggests 'Something Weird' Is Going On In The Universe

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