For The Past
Thirty years, astronomers have used the Hubble Space Telescope to study the edges of the universe.
Now, As The Scientists Analysed
The data collected by the telescope, they come to the startling conclusion that “something weird” is going on with the universe.
The Telescope, Which Was Launched
In 1990, has helped astronomers identify 40 "milepost markers” for space and time to measure the rate of the expansion of the universe.
But Now, NASA Has Observed
A discrepancy between its current rate when compared to observations from after the Big Bang which took place around 14 billion years ago.
The Organisation Said In A Statement
“Pursuit of the universe's expansion rate began in the 1920s with measurements by astronomers Edwin P. Hubble and Georges Lemaître.
In 1998, This Led To
The discovery of "dark enegy," a mysterious repulsive force accelerating the universe's expansion.
