Questions on Questions on Questions

Written By: Anton Ulyanov - Jul• 24•13

Based on an initial data analysis of my small data sample, I hypothesized that the answer to my guiding question (Are all galaxies the same size?) is no. Tonight I’ll check this hypothesis against the full data set we collected as a group.
The most interesting thing about science, however, is that answering a question leads to even more questions. I now want to investigate the relationship between galaxy size and brightness. Thankfully, Professor York helped me account for the different distances between the galaxies so I can now directly graph brightness vs. size.
I’ll be looking forward to sharing my results with the class in the coming days.

    Questions lead to more questions. You’ll have to show me how you accounted for size. I am interested in your results.
