from the launch viewing area at Kennedy
Space Center, Ron Hipschman will show images and
recount what its like to watch at shuttle launch
from three miles away. We'll also preview the mission
and the tasks the astronauts will be doing during
their five planned space walks.

an exclusive taped interview, Hubble payload commander
and astronaut John Grunsfeld will discuss how astronauts
train in a giant
pool at the Johnson
Space Center for servicing a telescope in space.
We'll also show an interview with space engineer Amy
Ross filmed in the space suit laboratory at Johnson.

New Eyes for Hubble
Camera for Surveys (ACS) was successfully installed.
In preparation for the installation of the NICMOS
Cooling System tomorrow, the astronauts also installed
the Electronics Support Module. We also talk with
Stiavelli, a scientist at the Space Telescope
Science Institute about his involvement with the ACS

A 'Fridge' for NICMOS
Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS)
will be brought back to life with the installation
of the new experimental NICMOS
cryo-cooler. The cryo-cooler updates the technology
from that of an icebox to a modern refrigerator. We
also talk to Keith

be hosting live, internet broadcasts from the Space
Telescope Science Institute and Goddard
Space Flight Center in Maryland, and the Exploratorium
in San Francisco. Via a live video link, we'll take
you on a virtual tour of the scientific and operational
activities that extend our vision of space and time.
Find out how the telescope sees, who gets to point
it , and at what. Discover what the telescope tells
us about the Universe, its past and its future.

time on the Telescope
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

Sense of What Hubble Gives Us
pictures have changed our understanding of the galaxy.
We'll meet some scientists who will show us how their
images have led to knew discoveries. And we'll check
in on our own imaging project and track its progress.

to Art: Making Hubble Heritage
unique chance to watch the live progression of the
making of a Hubble image! We'll select an image to
follow over the course of the following webcasts,
showing you the steps along the way as it goes from
raw data to a full-color picture. And we'll talk with
people who bring Hubble's fantastic images to the

Stop Before Space
first-ever live event inside the NASA clean room where
space hardware is being prepared for the Hubble Space
Telescope. We'll get dressed in "bunny suits" to explore
the room and show you the activities of engineers
and scientists getting ready for the next Hubble servicing
mission in November.
