Caption: Edwin Hubble (1889-1953), US astronomer. Montage of images of the life and work of Hubble, including the space telescope that bears his name, and the Hubble Sequence of galaxy classification Hubble profoundly changed the understanding of the universe by confirming the existence of galaxies other than our own, the Milky Way. He also discovered that the degree of Doppler shift (specifically redshift) observed in the light spectra from other galaxies increased in proportion to a particular galaxy's distance from Earth. This relationship became known as Hubble's Law, and helped establish that the universe is expanding.
