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 discovered that the Galaxies in the Universe are continually moving away - in all directions - from the Earth.
In 1924, Edwin Hubble discovered that there were other galaxies inthe universe besides the Milky Way. He also showed that certainnebulae were at one time galaxies far away beyond the Milky Way.Hubble was an American astronomer.
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)
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.

Comparing the red-shift of light from different galaxies, Edwin Hubble and Milton Humason establshed that it indicated the physical distance and movement of galaxies outside our own. This meant that Einstein's assumption of a "stable" universe was wrong, and that the universe must be dynamically exp…anding. (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.
The most important thing that Hubble discovered was that our universe is expanding. He could see this because he noticed that galaxies were moving apart (which he figured out by their red shifting). In fact, the expansion of our universe is speeding up and galaxies are moving apart faster and faster…. (MORE)
Hubble demonstrated that the light from distant stars and galaxies is "red-shifted" - the spectrum of the light was shifted to longer wavelengths and lower frequencies. He demonstrated that the amount of the red-shift is dependent on the distance to the star, so that more distant stars have a greate…r redshift. Hubble also suggested a mechanism for this; that the universe is expanding in all directions, and that's the REASON for the red shift. Nobody else has been able to come up with a better explanation, and so most scientists accept this reasoning. But deduction isn't proof, even though far too many scientists think that it is. (MORE)
Edwin Hubble did his observations at the Mt. Wilson Observatory in California. See the related link below for more information about Hubble.
When they slide against one another, there is a high likelyhood that something will get caught, and there is so much stress and strain that the plate can't handle it anymore, so it snaps and releases energy known as an earthquake.Also its like a car for example when 2 cars pass each other 2 cars get…s too much pressure and makes a scarch (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.
Redshift, when the light of an object is moving away from you, the visible light shifts towards the red spectrum.
It's due to static electricity build up. The balloons have become charged with electricity and it is the same charge on both balloons (either positive or negative). Opposite charges attract, identical charges repel each other.
Edwin Hubble discovered many things: . The Universe is bigger than just our Galaxy. . That galaxies are getting further away with distance. . Asteroid 1373 Cincinnati
John Kennedy ran against Richard Nixon in 1960. Kennedy won but Nixon ran again in 1968 and won.
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)
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)
The distance to a galaxy and the red shift of its light are both enormously hard to measure. Hubble spent enough years at it, and laboriously eked out the distances and red shifts of enough galaxies, that a pattern began to emerge from the data ... that the farther away from us a galaxy is, th…e faster it's moving even farther away from us, regardless of what direction you look. The "Expanding Universe" is the popular label for that pattern, which is now well established. (MORE)
If two tectonic plates press against one another, then pressure would start to build up and over time they would finally shift very quickly and cause vibrations that would shake most of the earth around it. Thus, an earthquake is born. from: Kathryn, 13.
He discovered Cepheid variable stars in the Great Nebula in the Andromeda constellation. These stars are used as a way of measuring distances to other galaxies. The first Cepheid he found he originally thought was a "nova". Then he realised it was a variable. That enabled him to estimate the dis…tance to the Andromeda galaxy. (MORE)

Edwin Hubble did not believe that the universe is expanding! Hubble said the redshift represents a hitherto unrecognized principle of nature . Hubble was humble and honest enough to say that the redshift was an unknown principle of nature. Other physicists have taken Hubble's data and misinterpr…eted it to mean universe expansion. I have a theoretical derivation of the redshift and it indicates that the redshift indicates equilibrium of the universe, not expansion . The redshift is an indicator of the balance between the centripetal force and the centrifugal force. Hubble was right, the redshift was an unknown principle and the universe. The redshift of atoms is the fine structure constant and serves the same purpose, balancing the scalar forces in a quaternion, 4D universe. (MORE)
hello well the simple answer is that when he studied some stars as well he saw redshift which made the to go away from each other.
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)
Friction is produced when two objects slide against each other, heat is also another product.
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.
Edwin Hubble DID NOT PROVE that the universe was expanding. What Hubble DID do was to demonstrate that the light from distantstars and galaxies is "red-shifted" - the spectrum of the light wasshifted to longer wavelengths and lower frequencies. Hedemonstrated that the amount of the red-shift is d…ependent on thedistance, so that more distant objects have a greater redshift. Hubble also suggested a mechanism for this; that the universe isexpanding in all directions, and that's the REASON for the redshift. Nobody else has been able to come up with a betterexplanation, and so most scientists accept this reasoning. Butreasoning isn't proof, even though far too many scientists thinkthat it is. We BELIEVE that the universe is expanding. But wealways have to be willing to accept new data, and it's possible(however unlikely) that new data will someday cause us to discardthe notion of universal expansion. Answer2: Hubble DID NOT BELIEVE that the universe was expanding. Hubble sawthe red shift as an "hitherto unrecognized principle of nature".The red shift is ratio of v/c where v is the gravitational inducedvelocity field, v = (GM/r)^.5 and v/c = (GM/r)^.5/d. The red shiftis larger when the closer to the mass M and larger when the mass islarger. Mercury has greater velocity and red shift than earth because it is closer to the sun. Einstein's Relativity is flawed, thesun has a velocity field around it, the earth has velocity v=30km/s whether the earth is here or not, the sun's velocity fieldmakes any mass at this range that speed. The farther away from themass the smaller the velocity. The Universe might be expanding like an excited atom, where theelectrons jump to a higher level away from the nucleus and lowerspeed. The Universe might be acting like an atom in "expanding",and having a lower energy configuration.. The highest energy iswhen the velocity is v=c, this occurs when the size of the Universeis smallest. When v is less than c then the universe is not at itshighest level of Energy. The General formula for Energy is W =-mGM/r + cP = [-vh/2pir, cP]where cP is the vector energy and the so-called "Dark Energy". Thevector energy keeps the earth from falling into the sun, cDel.P = -cp/r cos(P) = -cmv/ct cos(P)= -mv/t cos(P) = -ma cos(P), this isthe Divergence of the Vector energy and the centrifugal force, thatkeeps the planets in orbit.!

That depends on what type of tectonic plates they are! If one is a continental plate and the other is oceanic then the denser and heavier oceanic plate will be pushed down under the lighter continental plate. There will also be some buckling of the oceanic and continental crust which creates fold mo…untains. Where the oceanic plate sinks into the mantle it may start to melt and this material will rise up through the overlying continental crust and eventually erupt on the surface forming volcanoes. This is occurring along the north western edge of the US and is responsible for the formation of the Cascade range volcanoes such as Mt St Helens. In some places the down going plate can become jammed against the overlying plate. This causes pressure to build up until the plate slips again and causes a sudden slip. The energy released when this occurs is an earthquake. If two continental plates collide they are both too buoyant (they want to float) for one to be forced under the other and so they both buckle and form large mountain chains and can also cause large earthquakes. The best example of this sort of plate collision is that between the Indian and Eurasian plates which has created the Himalayas. (MORE)

There is some confusion here - the Milky Way is a galaxy, not "a Universe". The Universe is everything we know. While there is some speculation about other Universes (pressumably unreachable for use), it is hard to determine whether there actually are other universes, or not.
Edwin Hubble didn't invent the Hubble Space Telescope, and he never knew of it. It was named in his honor and memory long after his death.
He used detailed observations to prove that other galaxies existed beyond the edge of our galaxy. His data confirmed that the universe is much larger than our own galaxy, the Milky Way.
That they are all moving away from each other at a great rate of speed and that speed seems to be acceleration.
Alabama vs Oklahoma had a home home games in 2002 and 2003 which The Sooners won both games. The Crimson Tide defeated Oklahoma in 1963 and both teams played in 1970, that 1970 game was a tie. Oklahoma Sooners leads the series against Alabama Crimson Tide 2-1-1. :)
Actuall year is 1927, however it was actually discovered by LemaÃ®tre in 1927 but he did not have good evidence.
Hubble analysed the spectra that are emitted by various astronomical objects (stars and galaxies, etc.) and found that the more distant these objects are, the more these spectra were red shifted. A red shift is caused by the Doppler effect, and it indicates that a source of radiation is moving away …from us, and the greater the red shift, the faster the velocity with which it is moving away. So if everything is moving away from us, and moving faster the farther away it is, that indicates an expanding universe. (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)
When 2 bullets are fired against each other, there are many forces that will affect their path of travel. If all forces are equal in both bullets and the angle of incident is the same, they will cancel each other out. This is make them stop where they are. If there is a unbalanced force that is not …opposed or that overpowers the opposing force then the 2 bullets will travel in the direction of the unbalanced force.. (MORE)
In 1929, Edwin Hubble began measuring the distances as well as themovements of other galaxies. By doing this, he discovered that theuniverse was expanding. The famous Hubble Space Telescope is namedafter Edwin Hubble.
He discovered two things: that Andromeda was too far away and thuscould not be inside our galaxy (which was then believed to be theentire universe) like other known nebulas and it had a surprisinglylarge redshift to its spectrum meaning it was moving rapidly awayfrom us. Later observations showing t…hat many other nebula like Andromedaalso could not be in our galaxy and had large redshifts hedeveloped an equation relating those redshifts to distances, calledHubble's Law.
