  • Physical models of Type Ia supernovae (SN Ia) that do not depend on secondary calibrators have indicated that the Hubble Constant must be about 65 km/s/Mpc for well over a decade with the range of uncertainty shrinking with the sophistication of the models. This estimate is in good agreement with those based on HST observations of Cepheid variables and with purely empirical methods based on SN Ia calibrated with Cepheids. The prospects of progress in understanding the physics of the explosion… CONTINUE READING
