In this brief talk, we’ll explore how the art of photography has helped reveal the elegant mathematics of vision. We are thrilled to host Hubble Imaging expert, Zolt Levay, from the Space Telescope Institute for a discussion about the science and art of translating Hubble's data into colorful photographs of the cosmic landscape. 5 years and 5 servicing missions have provided scientists and the public with unprecedented views of our universe. From objects as close as our solar system to the furthest reaches of the Universe, we’ll look at some of these images and discuss what it took to get them.
