Researchers from the University of Portsmouth have come up with a new measurement of one of the most debated topics in cosmology.

Three cosmologists from the University's Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation analysed new data to provide one of the most accurate measurements of the Hubble Constant to date.

Hubble - Constant - History - Disagreements - Astronomers

The Hubble Constant has a long and contentious history with famous disagreements between astronomers, with people still debating its value after nearly a century of measurements.

The Hubble Constant is the local expansion rate of the Universe and is the cornerstone of modern cosmology. This expansion was first measured by Edwin Hubble in 1929 and is known as Hubble's Law. A key part of this law is Hubbles' Constant, which represents the exact expansion rate now (i.e., how fast space is expanding in our local cosmic neighbourhood).

To obtain this new measurement, the ICG researchers used a new methodology,...
