What is the Hubble Constant?

...All galaxies appear to be receding from one another. Any space
location or motion is relative, and there is a fourth dimension,
Galaxies motion is described as motion of islands in space. And the
velocity of a galaxy is estimated by the Doppler effect ( light
emitted from a source is shifted in wave-length, by the motion of
In respect of this motion, Edwin Powell Hubble (1889-1953) had
discovered a linear correlation between speed and distance (rate
of change of speed with respect to the distance is constant):
The Linear Velocity =
the Hubble constant, that was originally thought of as 75, and now
revised as 71 km/sec/mega parsec (parsec = 3.26 light years). For
this value, the expansion time (reckoned from Big Bang (BB)) of
our universe is estimated as
