Edwin Hubble

Today we remember astronomer Edwin Hubble, who passed away on September 28, 1953. Considered one of the most important observational cosmologists of the 20th century, Hubble was the first to discover that there are other galaxies in the Universe beyond the Milky Way. He also the first to observe that the universe is expanding at a constant rate. Hubble’s revolutionary findings fundamentally changed the scientific view of the universe.
