Fabulous, I have always thought octopuses were as close to an alien species as we would encounter without leaving his planet.

I have often wondered, could something else be causing red shift. If the universe is truly infinite there is an awful lot of matter out there, could this be effecting light that has to travel great distances. Even if this is only a minor effect it could throw the calculations out by quite a bit.

If you look at the table quoted you will se that Hubble was the one who applied the critical 'standard candle' Cepheid variable, this was the key inspiration. Of course it was not as accurate as todays instruments allow and he made mistakes (if Edward Jenner did what he did today he would be jailed) but his inspired insight was the convincer.
Get over it, go discover something new.

Popular Science have stopped taking comments on their articles in the interest of science and make a strong case for their action. It is a shame that any science discussion can be stifled by the rants of the ill informed or politically motivated few. http://tiny.cc/rc773w
