Weekly Biography

Edwin Powell Hubble

 

Edwin Hubble was born in Marshfieldon Missouri on November 20, 1889. Edwin began reading science-fiction novels at a young age. One of his favorite books was Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.  He later graduated from the University of Chicago and served in WWI before settling down to lead research in the field of astrophysics at Mount Wilson Observatory in California. Hubble's revolutionary work includes finding a constant relationship between galaxies' redshift and distance, which helped to eventually prove that the universe is expanding. Additionally, a classification system that he created for galaxies has been used by other researchers for decades, now known as the Hubble sequence.
