Transcript of Our Universe:02 Exploring the universe - Creative Product

Our Universe: 02 Exploring the Universe The Hubble Space Telescope The Hubble Space Telescope is a space telescope orbiting around Earth at an altitude of about 400 miles. It was launched April 25, 1990 with the goal of using three cameras to photograph objects that are far away in space. Hubble was launched as a collaboration between U.S.A.'s National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Europe's European Space Agency (ESA). Introduction The Hubble Space telescope has provided people with so much information about far away galaxies and stars that humans would not have known about. Hubble allows people to start answering questions about our galaxy's past and predict what might happen to our galaxy in the future. Video about Hubble This is the Cat's eye nebula 3,000 light-years away from Earth. This picture shows a phase of this star in which the inner part is dying and the outer parts are being removed. This image gives us an idea of what may occur to our sun in five billion years. Image taken by Hubble Hubble has helped astronomers so much with their work. Hubble has allowed people to learn a lot about other planets including ones that are much like Earth. Hubble's Science Legacy Video This image is of the spiral galaxy NGC 4183. NGC 4183 in part of the Ursa Major Group spanning 80,000 light-years from one end to the other making it slightly smaller than our Milky Way galaxy. This galaxy is about 55 light-years from the sun, lying in the constellation Canes Venatici. Another image taken by Hubble The Hubble has not provided humans with improved technology for their homes. However, Hubble has provided humans with such extended knowledge of other galaxies that are far away from Earth. This knowledge can help scientists predict the future of the Milky Way galaxy as well as answer questions about the origins of our universe. Conclusion "Hubble Space Telescope." Wikipedia.

Resources Data The Hubble Space telescope was originally given three goals. "(1) a study of the nearby intergalactic medium using quasar absorption lines to determine the properties of the intergalactic medium and the gaseous content of galaxies and groups of galaxies; (2) a medium deep survey using the Wide Field Camera to take data whenever one of the other instruments was being used and (3) a project to determine the Hubble Constant within ten percent by reducing the errors, both external and internal, in the calibration of the distance scale" (Wikipedia Free Encyclopedia). Hubble has taken over 570,000 pictures in twenty years. Hubble is still out in space now, but Hubble's successor, the Webb Space telescope is being created. This telescope is meant to orbit far beyond our Moon and detect infrared rays.
