Fact of the Day: Hubble Universe

While he wasn't the first person to form the idea, but astronomer Edwin Hubble was the first person to discover that was more to the universe than the Milky Way Galaxy. Many galaxies were known at the time, though were thought to be something else. The Andromeda Galaxy for example was originally thought to be a nebula.
