On May 11, 2009, the space shuttle Atlantis was launched from the Kennedy Space Center and docked with the Hubble Space Telescope 360 miles above the earth. During Servicing Mission 4 (SM4), astronauts installed new, cutting-edge scientific instruments and replaced gyroscopes, batteries, and other equipment. After a difficult but very successful upgrade of the telescope, the astronauts released Hubble on May 19. The Exploratorium Webcast team will bring you two live Webcasts (May 20 & May 23) about this arduous mission and the future of the telescope.
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.
