Edwin Hubble (November 29, 1889 – September 28, 1953) was an American astronomer from Kentucky.[1] Among his contributions to the field of astronomy was the discovery that the vast majority of galaxies have red-shifted light, indicating that they are receding from the point of reference (Earth). These observations provided support for scientific models of a Big Bang origin of the universe, contrary to models supported by Albert Einstein and others. The Hubble Space Telescope is named after him.
