The Hubble Constant by Neal Jackson

Small book cover: The Hubble Constant

The Hubble Constant
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 48

Description:
The author reviews the current state of determinations of the Hubble constant, which gives the length scale of the Universe by relating the expansion velocity of objects to their distance. Many, but not all, object-based measurements give H0 values of around 72-74km/s/Mpc.
