- The Hubble Diagram - Specific Information
Teacher's Guide to Specific Sections Introduction Let students read through the Introduction on their own. Ask them why the discovery that the universe was expanding was so unexpected. Point out that its discovery required three separate threads to come together: Einstein's General Relativity, Slipher's measurements of redshifts, and the building of the new 100" telescope on Mount Wilson. Ask them how the three other lines of evidence support the big bang theory. Get them thinking about how different lines of evidence add up to support a scientific theory. Ask: what makes a good theory?
