NASA says something strange is happening to our universe

One of the most powerful instruments known to the world when it comes to interstellar measurements is the Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble is currently on a much larger-scale mission – to determine how fast our universe is expanding.
Now, new findings show that the universe is not expanding at a uniform rate. Scientists are studying new data from the Hubble Space Telescope. They say that the expansion rate of other galaxies has become much faster than we originally expected and understood.
“We have the most accurate measure of the expansion rate of the universe yet,” said Nobel laureate Adam Riess of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. The telescope’s gold standard universe and cosmic mile markers Observations also show other galaxies are moving away from our Milky Way galaxy at a faster rate. They still can’t figure out why, so all they’re saying right now is still something weird going on.”
Riess is currently leading a team of scientists who have published a paper regarding data collected from the Hubble Space Telescope and it has been found that other galaxies are moving quite quickly compared to us. – shows a clear increase in the rate of cosmic expansion.
The study of the expansion rate of the universe has been a topic that has fascinated scientists and astronomers for a very long time. From the initial studies carried out in the 1920s by astronomers Edwin P. Hubble and Georges Lemaitre until the discovery of “dark energy” in the late 1990s, advances in the field have made progress in the field. This happens slowly but steadily.
However, the Hubble Space Telescope has been providing a huge amount of data for research scientists, and NASA believes that something strange is happening in the universe as it is expanding rapidly. how.
Other NASA scientists said in a press release: “The cause of this discrepancy remains a mystery. But Hubble’s data, which includes many different cosmic objects, plays a role. distance markers, supporting the idea that something strange is happening, possibly related to an entirely new physical phenomenon.”
