25 Years of the Hubble Space Telescope


April 25, 2015
Location: Kalamazoo, Mich.

On April 25, 1990, astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery deployed the Hubble Space Telescope into Earth orbit, and launched a new era of astronomical discovery. Now, 25 years later, we celebrate a remarkable milestone for a space observatory whose ground-breaking investigations have brought revolutionary changes in our understanding from planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies to the very frontiers of the cosmos. Explore the trials and triumphs of NASA's first Great Observatory, and experience a compendium of some of the greatest imagery the universe has ever known. Join Dr. Frank Summers, Hubble astrophysicist, for the Astronomy Day 2015 Keynote Presentation. Admission is free and tickets are not required.
