G. [de Vaucouleurs 1981]. This lively debate has gone on a long time, and various points have been clarified in the course of the last 10 years (for an excellent review see [Rowan-Robinson 1986]). To find the value of H o, one has to evaluate the integral over the luminosity function ¢J(M). A function ¢J(M) concentrated on a specific absolute magnitude Mo would be ideal. Roughly speaking, the intrinsic luminosity of remote galaxies - so distant, that they follow the unperturbed Hubble flow - has to be found.
S. 5 M (0)' Thus the luminous stars with a negative (B - V) index (i. e. a strong blue component in the spectrum) are young stars, while the less luminous, reddish stars on the main sequence have a smaller mass and constitute an old population of stars. Distances are determined within our stellar system by using the parallax caused by the Earth's orbit around the Sun and star streaming methods for nearby objects; while for larger distances Cepheid variables are employed. These are pulsating stars, whose pulsation period and colour give an exact measure of their absolute luminosity.
One may speculate that perhaps this supernova explosion was the trigger for the formation process! Recent satellite observations [Mahoney et al. 1982, 1984], however, interpret a y-line as a transition in the daughter nucleus 2IMg after 26AI-decay. These observations indicate that there is always a large amount of 26AI in interstellar space (due to supernovae, novae, and stellar winds). Thus the supernova trigger is not needed to explain the over-abundance in the Allende meteorite. 2 The Age of the Elements These meteorite and rock measurements also give the abundance of the elements at the time when the Solar System was formed.
