Happy Birthday, Hubble!

The Hubble space telescope has revolutionized mankind’s notions of the cosmos.  A few of its achievements:

  • Like Luke Skywalker's planet Determining the age of the universe (1.38 billion years)
  • Discovering that the universe is expanding more rapidly now than in the past
  • Proving the existence of black energy
  • Discovering planets outside of our solar system
    (Click here for a glimpse of NASA’s travel posters for some of these exoplanets)
  • Increasing many people’s awe through the incredible beauties of creation

Scientists recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of Hubble’s launch.  Here are some links to help you celebrate, too
