Hubble Space Telescope Calendar

Hubble Space Telescope Calendar

SKU 2747 $15.00
The Hubble Space Telescope, named after Edwin Powell Hubble (1889-1953), a pioneer of modern astronomy, has captured awe-inspiring images of nearby galaxies and deep space since its launch in 1990. From its orbit above Earth, the telescope has probed the cosmos, peering deep into time the farther it searches and allowing greater understanding of what lies beyond our atmosphere. Hubble has recorded more than one million observations, making it one of the most productive scientific instruments ever built. On the ground, specialists meticulously clean and color the black-and-white photographs to help distinguish detail we could never perceive at such a distance. Each of this calendar's twelve images is accompanied by a description of the celestial phenomenon depicted. Important dates in the history of space exploration, as well as this year's eclipses and major meteor showers, are noted throughout. Calendar is 12" x 13"
