SkyServer: Hubble Diagram

A SkyServer Advanced project, intended for honors high school and college students. Students examine the magnitudes and redshifts of six sample galaxies and create a simple Hubble Diagram showing the expansion of the universe. Then they consider some of the complications involved in making a Hubble Diagram, and look at clusters of galaxies to account for galaxy differences.
