Cosmologist Licia Verde publishes, together with colleagues Tommaso Treu from the University of California and Adam G. Riess from the John Hopkins University a meeting report at Nature Astronomy on the Tensions between the early and late Universe.

The report discusses the state-of-the-art of the Hubble constant discrepancy. They review the new results shown at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics workshop in July 2019, and propose both solutions focusing on the pre-recombination era. They also remark the necessity of coordinated efforts between the theory, interpretation, data analysis and observations communities, and list some guidelines for the best practise.
