Transcript of The hubble space telescope

The Hubble Space Telescope a presentation by Camille Chow Edwin Hubble (1889-1953) Challenger Accident Creation of Hubble Telescope The Wide Field Camera (WFC3) Instruments and Machinery The Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS) The Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) The Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) The Near Infrared Camera and
Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS) Fine Guidence Sensors (FGS) The Five Missions Impacts on Astronomy Hubble's Pictures 1923 Hubble's dream begins to be put into the works. Edwin had always had a love for science, space, and
dreamed about new worlds. attended Oxford University on scholarhip to study
law, not astronomy. had set his mind on expanding the worlds knowledge
of astronomy and to discover things never seen by mankind
Many were skeptical of space at this time
because of the recent fail of the Challenger.
Anything dealing with space seemed dangerous
to many people.
In 1977 the government approved the telescope and
development began. The Hubble was launched on April 24, 1990 1993 the telescope had to be corrected because of a
mirror that was not placed properly
What is the Hubble Telescope? The Hubble Telescope takes clear, crisp photos
of space.
The distortion of Earths atmosphere allows for
the images to be of a high quality.
Takes images of light rays, gamma rays, visable light, ect.
Not only does the Hubble take images but it also can
measure temperature, distance, density, can track
formations, and find new substances. Of the Hubble This tool is used to study dark energy and dark matter. It can also be used to study the formation of the stars and to locate distant galaxies. Dark Matter This tool can tell the temperature of ultra-violet light and chemical componants around it. Also it can detect density anf track motion This instrument searches for new planets, new galaxies, or any new formations. Also can see visable light. This Spectrograph views ultra-violet light, visable light, and infrared light rays. Also searches for black holes A basic heat sensor that can detect any rapid increase or dcrease in temperature This instrument keeps the telescope orbiting in the right direction at 5 miles per second. Also the machine can measure the distance between stars. Service Mission 1(1993): Astronaunts travel to the telescope
to adjust a mirror lens
Service Mission 2(1997): replacement on a tape recorder
Mission 3A(1999): installation of new computers and replace-
ment of old tools
Mission 3B(2002): installation of a new instrument placed into
the computer for a better understanding of
the galaxies.
Mission 4(2009): installation of WTC3 and COS. Today many collages offer studies in astronomy. Studies offer exploration in scientific breakthroughs such as the Hubble Telescope. Journals and Articals have had both possitive and neggative effects on astronomy. NASA states that only 10% of information presented in articles about the telescope are true facts for NASA themselves. nebulas
