Answer . Hubble worked with the astronomer G. E. Hale at the Mount Wilson observatory. He used methods and results by Henrietta S. Leavitt and V. M. Silpher. His long-time collaborator was M. L. Humason. .
Hubble realized that dimmer galaxies were probably farther away tha brighter galaxies. Thus, he tried to determine if there is a relation between the distances to galaxies and their red shifts. Using estimated distances based on relative brightness and the observed Doppler red shifts, Hubble discove…red that galaxies that exhibit the greatest red shifts are the most distant. (MORE)
Edwin Hubble was a highly appreciated astronomer who studied space. The Hubble telescope was name after him.
\n. \nEdwin Hubble lived from 1889-1953. He showed that the Andromeda spiral was not part of the Milky Way galaxy. By showing this he proved that there are more galaxies in existance. Edwin Powell Hubble was born on November 20 1889, and he died on September 28, 1953. Edwin Powell Hubble was an Ame…rican Astronomer who changed the understanding of the universe by confirming the existence of galaxies. He also discovered that the degree of "Doppler shift" observed in the light spectra from other galaxies increased in proportion to a particular galaxy's distance from Earth. This relationship became known as Hubble's Law , and helped establish that the universe is expanding. Hubble has sometimes been incorrectly credited with discovering the Doppler shift in the spectra of galaxies, but this had already been observed earlier by Vesto Slipher, whose data Hubble used. He was probably the one who invented the Hubble telescope (MORE)
Edwin Hubble invented a simple classification system for galaxies.The Hubble Space Telescope was named after him for his discoveriesin astronomy.
Edwin Hubble discovered that the Galaxies in the Universe are continually moving away - in all directions - from the Earth.
I Actually made a project on him and no he has no kids so yeah i hope this was helpful >.
Edwin Hubble was buried at cave hill cemetery Edwin Hubble's father John is buried at Cave Hill Cemetery. The location of the burial of the astronomers ashes was never revealed by his wife.
Hubble's thought about the existence of God are unknown. However,he was raised Christian and sometimes hinted at the fact that hebelieved in a "destiny" that could not be explained.
Edwin Hubble started his work at the University of Chicago, but healso spent some time a Oxford in England. He also founded the MountWilson Observatory in California and worked at the Mount PalomarObservatories, also in California.
In 1992 Edwin hubble announced that most galaxies in all directions show a redshift what does this imply about the movements of the universe why?
Edwin Hubble concluded from his research and dictations that the universe was indeed expanding, and quickly. In fact, as time goes on, the universe seems to be speeding up in its expansion. He backed it up with the big bang theory, the widely-accepted theory of how the universe began. The big bang… theory is complex, but you should know that it has three major parts: . singularity began it all . in milliseconds and at the most extreme temperatures ever, the universe was created and has been growing . the universe continues to grow and expand (MORE)
Edwin Hubble did not discover Neptune. Galileo's drawings show that he first observed Neptune on December 28, 1612, and again on January 27, 1613. On both occasions, Galileo mistook Neptune for a fixed star when it appeared very close in conjunction to Jupiter in the night sky, hence, he is not cre…dited with Neptune's discovery. Neptune was discovered due to the anomalies it caused i Uranus' orbit. There is a small dispute over who discovered Neptune. An international consensus emerged that two astronomers, Urbain Le Verrier and John Couch Adams, jointly deserved credit. See the link for more information. The law of Gravitation predicted the existence of planets beyond Uranus Observations in the orbit of Uranus led to the discovery of planet Neptune. It was discovered in the nineteenth century. (MORE)
Earth orbits the Sun, along with the other planets making up the solar system. However, the Sun is only a part of some hundred billion stars, with their own solar systems, that make up our galaxy.
The three different types of galaxies are the Spiral galaxy, theElliptical galaxy, and the Irregular galaxy. Spiral galaxies are obviously in the shape of a spiral, ellipticalgalaxies are shaped as an ellipse, or a flat circle, and irregulargalaxies can be any shape.
Edwin Hubble was a scienctist and he like to invent stuff and he liked his job very much.
Edwin Hubble was a renowned astronomer who was born in Illinois in1900. He received his Bachelor's Degree from the University ofChicago and his Master's Degree from Oxford.
Edwin Hubble was famous for his work in establishing a linear relationship between the distance of a far away galaxy and the red shift measure. This relationship was interpreted by others to indicate that the galaxies were receding and the red shift was a Doppler shift. Hubble, himself, did not go… along with this interpretation. Hubble thought the red shift was an "hitherto unrecognized principle of nature." Hubble thought the data was better interpreted as if there was no recession, but there was no understanding of what the red shift was. Hubble was right to be skeptical of the red shift. The red shift is related to the centrifugal force that balances the central centripetal forces such as gravity and atomic nuclear forces. T he red shift is related to the centrifugal force which is generated by the vector energy of the moving body, E=cmV . This is the vector energy of any moving body and and is the so-called "Dark Energy" The centrifugal force is F = mcDel.V = -mcv/r cos(z) the balance is mv 2 /r = mcv/r cos(z) and v/c = cos(z) the red shift! Hubble is famous for his scientific aptitude and sceptical attitude ! (MORE)
Hubble earned a BS degree from the University of Chicago in 1910, and a Master's Degree in Spanish as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford. After several years as a high school teacher, he returned to Chicago and earned a PhD in astronomy in 1917.
In the late 1920s, the astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered that most of the galaxies he observed were moving away from Earth.

There are actually four broad classifications : spiral, elliptical, lenticular and irregular. Spiral galaxies look, basically, like our Milky Way Galaxy, though there are some variations. Ellipticals can look elongated like a football, or almost spherical. Lenticulars are "lens shaped" galaxies.… The irregular category covers just about everything else and include galaxies like our neighbors, the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds . (Classifications vary and there are some that have only three types.) (MORE)
Edwin Hubble was an astronomer who worked with Earth-based telescopes, and who died in 1953, before the launch of the first artificial satellite. The Hubble Space Telescope was named in his honor almost 40 years later. Additional: (See related links.) If anything can be said to be invented … by Hubble, it is to be found in a few ideas that came out of a few discoveries he made such as the existence of the Universe. Only at the turn of the century with the construction of gigantic telescopes of almost a meter in diameter was it possible to distinguish the blobs known as nebulae as being outside of our galaxy. In the 1920s Hubble's observations confirmed the existence of other galaxies in the universe outside of our own galaxy, an idea that existed, but was controversial and lacked evidence earlier. (Earlier, the universe was thought to be infinite, but mostly empty except for our own little neighborhood of a few billion stars in the Milky Way. As always, we were the center of the Universe.) In the next years, Hubble expanded this with data from others to quantify the observation that the Universe was expanding. (Now called Hubble's Law.) This led, of course, to the first data supporting the Big Bang theory suggested in by Georges LemaÃ®tre in 1927. (MORE)
\nhe discovered that there were millions of other galaxies... making the universe unimaginably larger than previously thought.\n. \nAnd he discovered that the light from distant galaxies is Red-shifted, and that the further the galaxy is, the more red-shifted its light.\n. \nThis not only demonstr…ated that the universe was expanding... It ultimately led to the formation of Big Bang theory by working out this expansion in reverse. (MORE)
What did the astronnmer Edwin Hubble discover about the relationship between the distance of a galaxy and the rate at which it is receding?
He discovered that the farther away a galaxy was, the faster it was moving away from Earth.
Edwin Hubble did his observations at the Mt. Wilson Observatory in California. See the related link below for more information about Hubble.
Non-covalent bonds Metallic bonding - a sea of delocalised electrons float between positive ions. This causes metals to be malleable and ductile, as you can distort them without their bonds being interrupted. They have high melting and boiling points due to strong electrical and thermal conduct…ivity, as the electrons allow charge to flow freely through the metal. The electrons also reflect light, which is why metallic substances are so lustrous. Example: Copper Ionic bonding - occurs between a metal ion and a non-metal ion. One ion is negative (anion) and one is positive (cation). These come together to form a compound with no overall charge. These compounds are typically crystalline solids at room temperature, and do not conduct electricity except when molten or in solution. Example: Ammonium Nitrate Covalent bonds Covalent molecular bonding - (often just called covalent bonding) This type of bonding is all about valency. A good example of covalent molecular bonding is water - H 2 O. The oxygen atom has six electrons, and as such needs two more to complete it's valence shell. Each hydrogen atom has only one electron. Both of the hydrogen atoms share their electron with the oxygen, so the oxygen has a full valence shell. In turn, the oxygen shares an electron with each hydrogen, so they have full valence shells of 2. Covalent network bonding - If you're studying junior science, this type of bonding will be overlooked for the moment. It is similar to covalent molecular bonding, but is much stronger, and only occurs in graphite, diamond and silicon oxide (quartz). Hope this helps! (MORE)
The Hubble Telescope was named after Edwin Powell Hubble who was an astronomer that confirmed that there were galaxies other than our own Milky Way; the discoveries of other galaxies have been repeatedly confirmed by the observations of the Hubble Telescope.
Edwin Powell Hubble, the noted astronomer that the Hubble Space Telescope is named for (he didn't have anything to do with its creation), died on September 28, 1953 (aged 63), in San Marino, California.
Hubble devised subcategorization for spiral galaxies first based onwhether the galaxy exhibited a bar and then how well the spiralarms were defined. The classes are designated as Sa, Sb, and SCwith the Sa class being the most tightly wound. A capital Bdesignation after the S indicates the presence o…f a bar as well. (MORE)
The space telescope that was launched in 1990 was named after Edwin Hubble, who died in 1953.

In 1923, Edwin Hubble showed that the "spiral nebulae" that were presumed to be within our galaxy, the Milky Way, were actually other galaxies that lay far beyond our. The following year, he showed that the Milky Way was just one of many galaxies in the universe. Hubble's discovery, announced on Jan…uary 1, 1925, fundamentally changed the view of the universe.

Hubble discovered other galaxies than our own. His work lead to the idea that these galaxies are generally moving away from our own Milky Way. Further, logical thinkers considered that the universe itself is expanding. And if the universe is expanding, it must at some point have been "compressed" …with all the matter closer together. This is the source of the idea we call the Big Bang. (MORE)
Edwin Hubble is important because of his excellent work in physics observation and analysis. Prior to Hubble, only Theoretical Work was honored. Hubble still sets the standard analysis in that while his redshift work is the "evidence" for "Expanding Universe", Hubble felt the redshift was an "unr…ecognized principle of nature". Hubble is right, the redshift is an indicator of equilibrium, not expansion. Hubble believed that his count data gave a more reasonable result concerning spatial curvature if the redshift correction was made assuming no recession. To the very end of his writings he maintained this position, favouring (or at the very least keeping open) the model where no true expansion exists, and therefore that the redshift "represents a hitherto unrecognized principle of nature". This viewpoint is emphasized (a) in The Realm of the Nebulae, (b) in his reply (Hubble 1937a) to the criticisms of the 1936 papers by Eddington and by McVittie, and (c) in his 1937 Rhodes Lectures published as The Observational Approach to Cosmology (Hubble 1937b). It also persists in his last published scientific paper which is an account of his Darwin Lecture (Hubble 1953). (MORE)
No. The astronomer and cosmologist Edwin Hubble was born in November, 1889. Numerous references to the moon will be found in countless ancient written works, including the Bible, written at least a few years earlier.
Edwin Hubble did not discover any planets. He is most famous for demonstrating that the "spiral nebulae" were, in fact, other galaxies lying far outside the Milky Way, and for discovering the relationship between redshift (= recessional velocity) of galaxies and their distances.
No. What Hubble did was to demonstrate that most of the distant galaxies exhibit a "red shift" in their spectra, and that the magnitude of the red shift in the spectra is roughly proportional to the distance. We INTERPRET the red shift as indicating that the universe is expanding, that the red sh…ift is due to the speed at which those galaxies are moving away from us. (Not all galaxies have a red shift; the Andromeda Galaxy has a blue shift, indicating that it is moving toward us!) But we must never forget that this is an INTERPRETATION, not PROOF. Some so-called scientists forget that evidence and facts trump cherished theories and explanations every time, and they begin to ignore the evidence and believe the theory. This person is not really a scientist! So far, we have no contrary evidence, so we accept Hubble's explanation; that the red shift indicates that the other galaxies are moving away, and that the more distant galaxies are moving away faster than the nearer ones. That doesn't seem to make sense, so we THEORIZE that the underlying meaning is that the universe itself is expanding. The common illustration is putting ink dots on the surface of a balloon; as the balloon expands, the dots appear to all be moving away from each other. But it's possible that contrary evidence will be discovered, and we have to be ready to reinterpret the evidence - ALL the evidence - when and if that happens. (MORE)
Hubble's classification scheme (which originally he proposed to beassociated with galactic evolution) uses a letter designation todescribe the various galactic types based on their shape.Ellipticals (E) mostly featureless with a smooth appearance;spirals (S) which have arms extending outwards in a s…piral shapeand sometimes with a central straight bar (SB); and Lenticular (S0)with a bright central bulge surrounded with an extended disk-likestructure and very little new star formation. Galaxies with noregular shape were dumped into an "irregular" classification. Laterastronomers extended Hubble's scheme or proposed alternateclassification methods. Our own Milky Way is a spiral with a modest central bar. (MORE)
Prior to Hubble, most astronomers believed that our Milky Way galaxy was, in effect, the entire universe, and the wispy disc-like structures that could be seen at a distance were nebular clouds. By studying a certain type of variable star in some of these "clouds", Hubble deduced that they were sepa…rate galaxies from our own, and that there were many of them. (MORE)

How did Edwin Hubble conclude that the the universe was not just the milky way galaxy but many galaxies?
Hubble used a powerful telescope to see that nebula (clouds) were in fact other galaxies far away.
Hubble was a legend among astronomers, for many reason, but his most noteworthy achievement was probably the discovery and subsequent proof that what were called at that time "nebulae", were actually separate galaxies like our own, and hence very far away from us. That one discovery kind of took a…stronomy from "high school" to "college" (MORE)

Hubble did not discover that there were other galaxies; that had been discovered earlier. But Hubble was the first to demonstrate that the more distant another galaxy is, the faster it is moving away from us. Edit: I'm not sure that's right. Hubble was surely the first to prove that a "spiral n…ebula" was too far away to be in the Milky Way. That nebula is what we now call the "Andromeda galaxy". I know that Slipher and others did important earlier work on red shifts, but I'm pretty sure Hubble did discover that other galaxies existed. (MORE)
They didn't. Most people's lives remain unaffected by anything beyond geosynchronous orbit. (Geosynch is the altitude of communications satellites.) Even for those of us who are fascinated by astronomy and space travel, information about distant galaxies is unlikely to affect us personally in any si…gnificant way. But knowledge often turns out to be practical and useful in unusual, often in unimagined ways. Comment: That's true up to a point, but I think there has been an important psychological effect. The proven size of the Universe became much larger and this has deeply affected how humans feel about their significance in the Universe. OK, a lot of people don't think about it, but if you do it's truly staggering. (MORE)
How did 1920's astronomer Edwin Hubble explain his observations that all light from distant galaxies exhibits the red-shift Doppler effect?
He concluded that all of space was expanding. Answer2: Hubble did not conclude that all space was expanding! Hubble concluded that he did not know what the redshift was. 1. "Red shifts represent Doppler effects, physical recession of the nebulae, or the action of some hitherto unrecognized… principle in nature." 2. If the nebulae are stationary, the law of red shifts is sensibly linear ; red shifts are a constant multiple of distances. In other words, each unit of light path contributes the same amount of red shift. 3. On the other hand, if the nebulae are receding, and the dimming factors are applied, the scale of distances is altered, and the law of red shifts is no longer linear. The rate of expansion increases more and more rapidly with distance. The significance of this result becomes clear when the picture is reversed. Light that reaches us today left the distant nebulae far back in the dim past - hundreds of millions of years ago. When we say that the rate of expansion increases with distance, we are saying that long ago, the universe was expanding much faster than it is today ; that, for the last several million years at least, the rate of expansion has been slowing down. Therefore, the so-called "age of the universe," the time interval since the expansion began, is much shorter than the 1800 million years suggested by a linear law of red shifts. If the measures are reliable, the interval would be less than 1000 million years - a fraction of the age of the earth and comparable with the history of life on the earth. The nature of the expansion is permissible and, in fact, specifies certain types of possible worlds. But the time scale is probably not acceptable. Either the measures are unreliable or red shifts do not represent expansion of the universe. Hubble admits to not knowing what the red shift is, he considers it a. Doppler effects, b. physical recession of the nebulae, or c. the action of some hitherto unrecognized principle in nature. The answer is c. the hitherto unrecognized principle in nature. The short answer is the red shift is the inverse of the refreaction coefficient, v/c= 1/n. The red shift is derived from the so-called "dark Energy", cP = cmV. Current Theories do not account for this because they do not recognize vector energy cP and Quaternion energy, W = -vh/l + cP = -vp + cP The red shift comes from the Continuity Condition where the centripetal force vp/r is balanced by the centrifugal force cDEL.P= -cp/r cos(P) thud vp/r=cp/r cos(P) gives v/c=cos(P) = 1/n This is the hitherto unrecognized prijnciple of nature, the Divergence of the vector energy produces the anti-gravity force (centrifugal ) that prevents the gravitational collapse, the earth from falling into the sun and the electrons from falling into the nucleus. Newton and Einstein did not consider the energy, cP, associated with momentum P, that is the "Dark Energy". This energy cP is the particel energy with different velocities v=(GM/r)^.5 for mass; v=Alpha Z c for electrons; and v=c for photons. Mass n= c/v; electrons n= alpha Z; and photons n=1. (MORE)
