Your opinion is very important to determine and analyze the possible system of Solar conversion in open currency markets and its ratio to the main fully convertible currencies chosen by Asgardians for this purpose.


New, Precise Measurements of the Universe Expansion Rate Raise New Questions

The two orbital space observatories – NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Gaia space observatory, have helped determine exact distances between nearby galaxies using Cepheid variables, a type of stars, in the Milky Way galaxy, as well as in other galaxies. Using measurements from both telescopes, the most accurate rate of the expansion of the universe has been calculated.   

The highly precise measurements of the exact distances between the Cepheids has yielded a surprising result: it turns out that two star clusters, separated by the distance of three million light years, are moving at a speed of 73 kilometers for seconds. However, another mission’s results demonstrated that the universe should be expanding at only 67 kilometers per second. 

This difference has forced astronomers to come up with various theories to explain the given anomaly. On the one hand, it is possible that the measurements are erroneous and incomplete. On the other, it is possible that the properties of the dark matter have changed during the time of the existence of the Universe. 

 The Hubble telescope has helped researchers determine how bright Cepheids can be at different distances. This has helped them eliminate errors in the calculation of distances between intergalactic bodies. New measurements have shown approximately the same figure – 73.56 kilometers per second. The margin of error here is 0.01%. 

 Asgardia continues to monitor space research, closely following the new findings of various space agencies of the major players. One of Asgardia’s goals is to make space accessible for all humanity.
