In 1960, due to the increasing accuracy of length measurements using modern technology, a new deﬁnition of the metre, based on a wavelength of Krypton-86 radiation, was adopted by the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM). However, in 1983 this deﬁnition was replaced, and the metre is now deﬁned as the length of the path travelled by light in a vacuum during a speciﬁed time interval. Astute readers will realise that this deﬁnition now ﬁxes c, the velocity of light in a vacuum, over all space and time at an arbitrary constant.
The distance to another galaxy can be inferred from the distance to particular stars within it. A third approach for measuring the distance to faraway objects came from the observation of Edwin Hubble that the light spectra observed from distant galaxies were displaced towards the red end of the spectrum. This phenomenon is analogous to the Doppler Effect, which produces a drop in pitch of the sound from a train as it passes and recedes from an observer. Hubble concluded that the distant galaxies were moving away from us, and that the fainter, more distant galaxies were moving faster than those closer to us.
It is this methodology that is at the heart of modern physics, and in this chapter we hope to lead the reader to an understanding of the principles involved, with examples of some of its successes and highlighting a few of the pitfalls in the interpretation of experimental results. 2 Higher, Faster, Heavier, but by How Much? Let us imagine that we are standing with Galileo in Pisa at the top of the Leaning Tower to observe the great man dropping balls over the edge. He asserts that one ball is heavier than the other.
