For a long time now, scientists have been faced with the issue of trying to determine the rate of expansion of the universe, but the recent survey that claims to discover the Milky Way and its close galaxies that exist in space may be the solution to the long lasting puzzle.
According to Mr. Hoscheit and his overseer, Amy Barger said the discovery would probably help to account for the differences in the rate of expansion of the universe when measured with distinct techniques by astrophysicists.
The Hubble Constant which is the measure of the rate of expansion of the universe has remained inconsistent for some time when measured by the use of emission from a close supernovae explosion and another technique that relies on cosmic microwave – the light that follows the Big Bang.
Ms. Barger and Mr. Hoscheit debated that the difference may be the difference in the pull of gravity exerted between the high and low concentrations of the matter within and outside the celestial proximity.
The unique value of the universe expansion rate
Speaking to the University of Wisconsin, Mr. Hoscheit said that the value of the world rate of increase should be the same despite the technique used. It’s no longer a new thing to say that the universe comprises of the crowded milky way, Barger’s hypothesis was supported by Mr. Hoscheit as well Ryan Keenan who is another student. The theory proposed that the Milky Way existed as large as seven times the average void, having a radius up to one billion years of light.
The effect of the findings
Mr. Hoscheit and his supervisor may have come out with results that will remove the clogged propositions and assumptions that abound with astrophysicists’ works that have produced inconsistent expansion rates of the universe. According to Ms. Barger, she told the University of Wisconsin-Madison that what Ben has portrayed is that the cosmological observables are in analogy with the density profile measured by Keenan. She further said that there is the need to have consistency if this is not achieved; it means that there is a bug that needs to be fixed.
