    For anyone who was following this "controversy," is has been settled. I was torn over this issue, Hubble was brilliant and had never shown a shred of academic dishonesty, but Lemaitre's hypothesis was proposed 2 years before Hubble even speculated about an expanding universe.

    Happy to hear that even Lamaitre considered Hubble's work to supersede his own; it makes both men better as a result.
