We present here the final results of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Key Project to measure the Hubble constant. We summarize our method, the results and the uncertainties, tabulate our revised distances, and give the implications of these results for cosmology. Our results are based on a Cepheid calibration of several secondary distance methods applied over the range of about 60 to 400 Mpc. The analysis presented here benefits from a number of recent improvements and refinements, including (1… CONTINUE READING
