 +You can get students to make their own measurements of this via two sets of resources:
 +  * Measure it using {{public:​outreach:​hubble_expansion_explanation.pdf|these instructions }} and the measurements from the Hubble Space Telescope given in this {{public:​outreach:​hubble_expansion.xls|Excel datasheet}}.
  
-  ​* Measure it using {{playground:​outreach:​hubble_expansion_explanation.pdf|these instructions }} and the measurements from the Hubble Space Telescope given in this {{playground:​outreach:​hubble_expansion.xls|Excel datasheet}}. +  * Make the measurements of the velocity from spectra of galaxies, and the distance from measuring the apparent size of the galaxies, using the instructions and web-based programmes at [[https://​sites.google.com/​a/​uw.edu/​introductory-astronomy-clearinghouse/​assignments/​labs-exercises/​hubbles-law|The University of Washington astronomy exercises page]]

For some of these exercises you will need the data in this {{playground:​outreach:​haumeadata.xls|Excel file}} for the dwarf planet Haumea. The Excel file contains data on the brightness of dwarf planet Haumea measured as a function of time on two nights in 2007, by astronomers at QUB. The lightcurve plotted using those data should appear as shown to the left.+{{public:​outreach:​activities.nb.pdf|This PDF file}} includes some exercises on Kepler'​s 3rd law, gravity, and density.
