This biographical article explains why Edwin Hubble is the appropriate namesake for the Hubble Space Telescope. The article recounts how Hubble made two extraordinary discoveries in the early 1900s that revolutionized science's understanding of the universe. Using a topnotch telescope, Hubble first discovered that our galaxy, the Milky Way, is not the whole of the universe. He then discerned that the universe is expanding. This expansion is now known as Hubble's law, and the discovery paved the way for the development of the Big Bang theory and modern cosmology. The article includes links to supplementary readings about red shifts, Hubble's law, and the Big Bang. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
