The uncertainty of science: New data from the Hubble Space Telescope suggests the universe’s expansion rate is 5%-9% faster than previously thought.
They say they have refined the expansion rate to a margin of error of only 2.4%, but forgive me if I remain skeptical. When it comes to cosmology, the uncertainties dominate, despite these claims.
