Scientists Now Calculate The Universe Is Expanding Much Faster Than Previously Believed

2019-04-27 21:10:351 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

According to a report by Digital Trends, scientists have long known that we live in an expanding universe, however new data from the Hubble Space Telescope show that this expansion is taking place faster than previously believed. Astronomers have reportedly calculated that the universe is rapidly expanding at a rate 9 percent faster than expected. Lead researcher Adam Riess of the Space Telescope Science Institute and Johns Hopkins University said in a statement, “The Hubble tension between the early and late Universe may be the most exciting development in cosmology in decades. This mismatch has been growing and has now reached a point that is really impossible to dismiss as a fluke. This disparity could not plausibly occur by chance.”
