(IAAC) correction (was Edwin Hubble, Ph.D. : the @stro object for the week of 04/10/2000)

In my report on Dr. Hubble I errantly claimed that he discovered and used
redshift to determine celestial distances.  When offered a correction by a
reader I rechecked my sources and none of them claim that to be true.  I
retract that portion of the report and apologize for the error.

Clear skies,
