Hubble Telescope data suggests ‘something weird’ going on in universe

One of the most powerful tools the world knows when it comes to measuring the interstellar is the Hubble Space Telescope

Hubble is currently working on a much more large-scale mission – determining how quickly our universe is expanding

Latest findings from the Hubble suggest that the universe is not expanding at a uniform rate.

US space agency NASA notes that “something weird” is going on in the universe based on the Hubble data. 

Due to there being a discrepancy in the rate of expansion of the universe as it is around us and observations made after the Big Bang.

The study of how the universe expanded and how fast it did began decades ago in 1920, it stated that galaxies outside of our own were not stationary and these galaxies are moving away from us. 

Hubble had added that these galaxies were moving at a non-uniform, increasing pace. The further a galaxy was from Earth, the faster it was moving away.

Data about the expansion from Hubble stats that instead of the expected 67.5 (plus or minus 0.5) kilometers per second per megaparsec, the observations noted 73 (plus or minus 1) kilometers per second per megaparsec.

NASA now hopes to gain more clarity about the expansion of the universe with the help of the James Webb Space Telescope, launched in December last year
