Question:
Which data is more accurate; the Time magazine report on the Hubble Tele- scope, the most resent, or the data based on the age of the Cephid Variables Stars?



Replies:
It is a great puzzle. No one is sure yet. The Hubble data should be good, but so should the older data. It will be fun to see how this is resolved. Maybe you will be the one to figure it out.
