Expanding Universe Comments
This is the classic expanding balloon picture of
the UNiverse, where students actually draw galaxies on a balloon and blow
it up, then measure the new distances, and try to derive a Hubble Law from
this. It's a nice way to picture an expanding universe, and a fun lab to
do. There are some good analysis and comprehension questions at the end.
When I was learning about the expansion of the universe in college 4 years
ago, this is how I came to understand a nice linear Hubble Law.
