A Lockdown Perspective on the Hubble Tension (plus Poll)

These are busy days in cosmological circles, especially regarding the Hubble Constant controversy. The latest contribution to appear on the arXiv is by George Efstathiou of Cambridge. Here is the abstract:

I don’t know if George has voted in my ongoing poll relating to this issue, but I bet that if he did he would vote low – along with the majority (so far):

Incidentally, I have seen no evidence of Russian interference in the voting.

  1. Looks like a really good paper. I must admit I prefer Efstathiou’s ‘late-time measurements’ vs ‘early-time’ to ‘high’ vs ‘low’

  2. Because I keep forgetting if it’s the ‘late-time’ measurements that give the high value, or vice versa and having to check it ! Also because the method is the important distinction between the two estimates, not which is high or low..
