History and Fate of the Universe:
CPEP members have developed a hands-on, inexpensive classroom activity for demonstrating the expansion of the universe. For many scientists and teachers, the famous Hubble graph makes it obvious that the universe is expanding, but for many students this is not the case. This activity helps students see why the 1929 graph implies an expanding universe using elastic and a ruler.
