Caption: US astronomer Hubble with friends, 1914. Edwin Powell Hubble (1889-1953) is at upper centre. The friends he is with included Roe Roberts and Lydia Roberts (lower left) and Davis Hale and Earl Hale (upper right). Hubble is most famous for his 1929 law that galaxies move apart faster the further away they are. This was key evidence for the expansion of the universe. Hubble's work on Cepheid variable stars showed that the Andromeda nebula was a galaxy outside our own. He also introduced the classification of galaxies (spirals, barred spirals, ellipticals). Photographed by John (Jack) R. Roberts at Silver Hills, New Albany, Indiana, USA.Restrictions:
