Hubble`s Law

Edwin Hubble was born in Missouri in the year 1864. He was an athlete and an astronomer. It was for his work in astronomy that Edwin became famous.

Applying the Doppler effect to the light coming from galaxies he discovered that  more distant galaxies have a larger recessional velocity than nearby ones.

His discovery led onto the fact that space between the galaxies is expanding.
