Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In astronomy, a Hubble Bubble would be "a departure of the local value of the Hubble constant from its globally averaged value," or "a local monopole in the peculiar velocity field, perhaps caused by a local void in the mass density." The Hubble Constant, named for astronomer Edwin Hubble, whose work made clear the expansion of the universe, measures the rate at which expansion occurs. In accordance with the Copernican principle that the Earth is not in a central, specially favored position, one would expect that measuring this constant at any point in the universe would yield the same value.show more
