Discovery of Hubble's Law as a Series of Type III Errors
Belenkiy, Ari
Physics Teacher, v53 n1 p20-24 Jan 2015
Recently much attention has been paid to the history of the discovery of Hubble's law--the linear relation between the rate of recession of the remote galaxies and distance to them from Earth. Though historians of cosmology now mention several names associated with this law instead of just one, the motivation of each actor of that remarkable story still remains somewhat obscure and is addressed here.
