With such tremendous luminosities, these supernovae have been detected out to a distance of more than 8 billion light-years and are therefore especially attractive to astronomers as a way of determining distances on a large scale (Figure ).

The "standard candles", used to set up the extragalactic distance scale, reviewed in this book include cepheid variables, RR The extragalactic distance scale book variables, novae, Type Ia and Type II supernovae as well as globular clusters and planetary : Danielle Alloin.

This volume reviews the current status with respect to both theory and observation of the extragalactic distance scale. A sufficient accuracy is required both for a precise determination of the cosmological parameters and also in order to achieve a better understanding of physical processes in.

As mentioned in Celestial Distances, one of the main projects carried out during the first years of operation of the Hubble Space Telescope was the measurement of cepheids in more distant galaxies to improve the accuracy of the extragalactic distance scale.

Recently, astronomers working with the Hubble Space Telescope have extended such measurements out to million light-years—a triumph of. where mod 0 is the true distance modulus.

By definition, W BFM V - R (B-V) so, by substituting the period-luminosity-color relation into the definition of W BFM we get W BFM = log P + (B-V) 0 + + mod 0 + A V - R (B-V) or, expanding the reddening terms, regrouping and cancelling, we get. Note that it is traditional to quote the distance modulus m-M = 5 log D - 5 rather than the distance itself in many publications on the distance scale - for example, the DM of the LMC is close to To date, the HST key project on the distance scale has reported detections of Cepheids to 25 Mpc.

universal scale, extragalactic distance measurements lie at the heart of our understanding of the size, age, composition, evolution, and future of the Universe. The value of the Hubble parameter today, H0, sets the scale of the Universe in space and time, and measuring H0.

The Extragalactic Distance Scale Note that H 0 has units of inverse time. (km/s/Mpc). Rewriting H 0 = km/s/Mpc = x s To estimate how long all galaxies were in the same place in space and time, calculate the time it would take for a galaxy with a velocity v to have traveled a.

The cosmic distance ladder (also known as the extragalactic distance scale) is the succession of methods by which astronomers determine the distances to celestial objects. A real direct distance measurement of an astronomical object is possible only for those objects that are close enough (within about a thousand parsecs) to Earth.

The extragalactic distance scale is a series of techniques used today by astronomers to determine the distance of cosmological bodies (beyond our own galaxy) not easily obtained with traditional methods.

Some procedures utilize properties of these objects, such as stars, globular clusters, nebulae, and galaxies as a methods are based more on the statistics and probabilities of.

Combination of maser and traditional techniques has provided the best estimate of the distance scale to date. About 20 years ago, RG astronomers used the Very Long Baseline Array of the NRAO to obtain the first extragalactic distance using this technique, for the galaxy NGC (see figure and caption).

This was correctly interpreted as mainly due to the expansion of the universe, that is, to the fact that the scale factor today is larger than when the photons were emitted by the observed galaxies.
