    Edwin Hubble was born on November 20, 1889. He graduated from the University of Chicago and served in WWI before he settled down to lead research in the field of astrophysics at Mount Wilson Observatory in California. Edwin Hubble revolutionized the field of astrophysics through the discovery that there are other galaxies outside of the Milky Way as well as the creation of a classification system which is used to identify the various types of galaxies. In 1989, when he was 10 years old, Hubble and

    Edwin P. Hubble was a ground-breaking American astronomer who revolutionized our knowledge of the universe and established the foundations for all of modern cosmology. At the beginning of the 20th century, most astronomers thought that our Universe was confined to the Milky Way Galaxy alone. However, Edwin Hubble's inspiration and perseverance in astronomical research proved otherwise. He discovered the existence of other galaxies and created a systematical classification for all galaxies. Additionally

    however is Edwin Hubble. Hubble is best known for his discoveries in Astronomy, but without math he wouldn’t be able to make his observations like he did. This makes him one of the best mathematicians the world knows. He started with a humble beginning to making the connection of science and math like no one had ever seen before. Edwin Hubble was born in Marshfield, Missouri on November 29th 1889. His father John Powell Hubble married his mother Virginia Lee Hubble. At a young age Edwin love reading

    In the research paper Distant supervision for relation extraction without labeled data", the authors Mike Mintz, Steven Bills, Rion Snow and Dan Jurafsky investigate an alternate paradigm [called distant supervision] for relation extraction. This algorithm combines the advantages of Super- vised Information Extraction and Unsupervised Information Extraction to achieve greater precision. Apart from this, they also analyze feature performance for better understanding of the roles of lexical and

    Hubble, The Space Telescope That Can See The Universe The Hubble Space Telescope is a large telescope in space weighing 24,500 lbs. NASA launched Hubble in 1990, "Hubble is named after Edwin P. Hubble, He was an astronomer"(Rosario). Hubble travels around the Earth taking pictures of planets, stars, and galaxies. "It has seen stars being born and stars die, and it has seen galaxies that are trillions of miles away." Scientists have learned a lot about space from Hubble pictures (Dunbar). In

    ever since. The Expansion of the Universe Edwin Hubble established the existence of other galaxies. He noted that the light from these galaxies was shifted toward the red. That is it's wavelength was longer than that of the light emitted from the corresponding atoms in the lab. Furthermore he found that the farther away the galaxy was the more it was shifted toward the red end of the spectrum. Hubble attributed this shift to the doppler effect. Hubble saw this and concluded that all galaxies are

    Astronomers are looking at their computers where the Hubble Space Telescope is sending what it is seeing. They say that a star may be born! Without the Hubble telescope it would be harder to learn and discover new things. The Hubble Space Telescope is a large telescope in space. To launch the Hubble Telescope, It’s really expensive but it helps us out a lot.. To launch the Hubble Telescope it took about 1.5 million dollars. This paper will show why the telescope is the best invention. It is the best

    It is only with acknowledging your mistakes, and repairing them that you can make science evolve. A scientist should always stay modest and critique his own theories. Without Imagination, Newton would have never found the theory of gravity, when he saw an apple fall out of a tree, and wondered why the moon wasn’t also falling. It is believed that the Universe was created between 10-20 billion years ago. One of the most stubbornly asked questions of all time is: How was the universe created? In the

    The Hale Telescope Who has not ever, even if just for a brief moment, looked up at a dark but vividly lit starry night sky and wondered how far those seemingly little lights reach, and if that beauty goes on forever, or if it ends at some point. I believe this question has been pondered by mankind since our creation, and early astronomers are proof of this pondering. Telescopes began as a way for these early astronomers to chart the stars and planets and their movements as they searched for more

    generations of bright minds. By 1930, other cosmologists, including Eddington, Willem de Sitter, and Einstein, had concluded that the static (non-evolving) models of the universe they had worked on for many years were unsatisfactory. Furthermore, Edwin Hubble, using the world’s largest telescope at Mt. Wilson in California, had shown that the distant galaxies all appeared to be receding from us at speeds proportional to their distances. In 1948, Gamow predicted that the radiation from the big bang nucleosynthesis

During her time at NASA, Dr. Nancy Grace Roman was in charge of the early planning and development of the Hubble Telescope. (Roman, n.d.) Roman also created the program structure for the project, as well as convince Congress to approve of the program and its funding. (Roman,

    Edwin Black's War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create a Master Race To the average American it seems unfathomable that US based research into the "scientific" practice of eugenics could have been the foundation and impetus for Hitler's Nazi genocide and atrocities. In addition, notions of racial superiority and the scientific quest for the development of a pure Aryan nation, both by the United States and foreign countries, particularly Germany, were funded and fueled

    Edwin S. Porter was both a film pioneer and director. He was a film pioneer because he made people come back to the theaters and start watching movies. His movies also were good because they told a story by editing the move. Being a director he made some of the greatest films in 1902 and 1903. In 1902 he directed The Life of an American Fireman and in 1903 The Great Train Robbery. With these two skills he was able to direct great films and use special camera shots not know of at that present time

    Edwin Morgan's Opening the Cage The poem "Opening the Cage," by Edwin Morgan, is based on a quote taken from John Cage. Cage said, "I have nothing to say and I am saying it and that is poetry." Cage's quote contains fourteen words which are rearranged fourteen times by the poet to create a fourteen line sonnet. At first glance, the poem may seem to be random and senseless, and this interpretation could hold true, for Cage was known especially for his chaotic and seemingly mindless music. One
