 +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 {{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}}.
-  ​* 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/​labs-exercises/​hubbles-law|The University of Washington astronomy exercises page]]+
