Every week enjoy a different speaker and discover a different topic.

August 5 The Hubble Space Telescope: A Brief History The Hubble Space Telescope was launched on April 24, 1990. It was hailed as the greatest advance in the study of the universe since Galileo. But it was an enormous failure. The images it transmitted back to earth were out of focus. This is the story of Hubble’s recovery and its amazing successes as well as the stories of astronomers and researchers going back hundreds of years whose work laid a foundation for the science of Hubble. Presenter: Pat Tibbetts
