Hubblecast 95: The impact of astronomy on our technological world

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 16:00:00 +0200

(image) (image) The astronomical images taken by Hubble are amongst the best known in the world. Behind these iconic observations stands a sophisticated instrument, based upon world-changing technology. Many of the technologies used and developed for Hubble and other telescopes have found their way into other fields and professions, as well as our everyday lives. This new Hubblecast shows how many of the technologies surrounding us owe their origins, or development, to fundamental astrophysics and innovation in astronomy.(image)

Hubblecast 92: 26th anniversary

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 17:00:00 +0200

(image) (image) On 24 April 1990, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope was sent into orbit aboard the space shuttle Discovery. Now it is celebrating its 26th anniversary. As in the last years Hubble spent a modest portion of its observing time to observe a special chosen object. This year, Hubble re-observed an object, it already captured over 15 years ago: NGC 7635, better known as the Bubble Nebula.(image)
