Description

The Objective of this experiment was to determine The Hubble constant.1 The Hubble constant is a ratio of the recessional velocity of distant galaxies to the distance that galaxy is from the Milky way. The constant can then be used to calculate the age of the universe. Doing this will allow us to compare our results with a more accepted quantity.
