Detail Page

published by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
This section of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey's website provides an excellent explanation of how Astronomers are able to use red-shift to explain the expansion of the universe. An activity is provided for a user to retrace Edwin Hubble's steps of measuring magnitudes and calculating redshifts to make a Hubble Diagram.

These pages are part of a large set of projects and activities provided by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey for advanced astronomy students.
