According to Hubble’s law, the frequency of light from distant galaxies is shifted toward the red in a way proportional to their distance D, z = HD, where H is Hubble's constant. Dr. J. V. Kadeisvili of the Institute for Basic Research and of the R. M. Santilli Foundation announces that Dr. R. M. Santilli's invariant derivation of Hubble's law without expansion of the universe has been confirmed at five recent scientific meetings (for links to the meetings visit...

NASA officials have announced plans to use the moon like a mirror in order to allow them to see the forthcoming transit of Venus across the face of the sun on June 5 and 6, the U.S. space agency announced in a Friday press release. The seemingly unorthodox technique is necessary because the Hubble Space Telescope, which will be used to observe the transit, cannot look at the sun directly. To work around that issue, astronomers will be pointing the telescope at our planet's satellite, using...

Farthest Galaxy Protocluster Discovered By Hubble
2012-01-10 13:25:20

Thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope, a team of astronomers have located the most distant grouping of still-developing galaxies ever witnessed in the early universe, NASA announced on Tuesday. According to the U.S. space agency, Hubble found a cluster of five tiny galaxies located 13.1 billion light years away during a random sky survey conducted in near-infrared light. The galaxies in the developing cluster, or protocluster, are said to be among the brightest at that epoch and were...

New Evidence Found For Complex Molecules On Pluto's Surface
2011-12-21 04:33:06

The new and highly sensitive Cosmic Origins Spectrograph aboard the Hubble Space Telescope has discovered a strong ultraviolet-wavelength absorber on Pluto's surface, providing new evidence that points to the possibility of complex hydrocarbon and/or nitrile molecules lying on the surface, according to a paper recently published in the Astronomical Journal by researchers from Southwest Research Institute and Nebraska Wesleyan University. Such chemical species can be produced by the...

2011-12-07 04:35:37

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has passed another milestone in its almost 21 years of observations: the publication of the 10,000th refereed scientific paper based on Hubble data. Alvaro Gimenez, Director of Science and Robotic Exploration for the European Space Agency said: “Reaching the milestone of the 10,000th scientific paper reminds us that Hubble is one of the most successful scientific endeavors in history. European scientists have played a big part in this, and have...

Was The Real Discovery Of The Expanding Universe Lost In Translation?
2011-11-10 08:55:02

The greatest astronomical discovery of the 20th century may have been credited to the wrong person. But it turns out to have been nobody's fault except for that of the actual original discoverer himself. Writing in the November 10th issue of the journal Nature, astrophysicist Mario Livio of the Space Telescope Science Institute has put to bed a growing conspiracy theory about who was fairly credited for discovering the expanding universe. For nearly a century, American astronomer Edwin...
