How much time does an astronomer need to get that great picture? We'll talk with scientists about how they determine their experiments, and learn what it takes to make their case for a few minutes of the telescope's time.
Join the Exploratorium as we follow the continuing stories of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Originally part of the Origins project, the Exploratorium's webcast team has a long history of the covering the Hubble Space Telescope and the servicing missions. The Hubble Space Telescope launched in 1990, and in the 18 years since has given us amazing glances at the universe around us. It is one of NASA's longest and most successful missions, and continues to provide the world with incredible images of space.
