Storyboard Text

  • Henrietta Swan Leavitt Makes a Great Discovery
  • I just discovered the relation between the luminosity and the period of Cepheid variable stars!
  • Meanwhile at the Lowell Observatory with Vesto Slipher...
  • Using spectroscopy to investigate the rotation periods of planets and the composition of planetary atmospheres, I have detected wavelength shifts and discovered redshifts in most 'spiral nebulae'! This means they are moving away from us!
  • Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity
  • I just finished my General Theory of Relativity! But there's just one problem... It admits no static cosmological solutions...
  • The Fudge Factor
  • I know what I'll do! I'll add a fudge factor to show the universe is invariant and call it something fancy like a 'cosmological constant.'
  • His Biggest Blunder
  • I hate to break it to you Albert, but your equations were right the first time... MY report shows that the universe is expanding.
  • Darn it.
  • Edwin Hubble and George LeMaitre Meet Ends
  • Well I think you just confirmed my 'expanding universe' theory, Hubble.
  • Thanks to Henrietta's and Vesto's discoveries, I have been able to combine our measurements to create what I shall call 'Hubble's Law.'
