Hubble at The Exploratorium


April 21-May 17, 2015
Location: San Francisco, Calif.
With more than one million stunning images produced, Hubble helps us understand the mysteries of the universe. Hubble imaging expert Zolt Levay from the Space Telescope Science Institute discusses the science and art of translating Hubble’s data into colorful photographs of the cosmos.

April 24, 2015 will mark the Hubble Space Telescope's 25th year in space. Hubble has reinvigorated and reshaped our perception of the cosmos and uncovered a universe where almost anything seems possible within the laws of physics. While orbiting Earth at 17,500 mph, Hubble has made more than one million observations since its mission began in 1990. Hubble has revealed properties of space and time that for most of human history were only probed in the imaginations of scientists and philosophers alike. Today, Hubble continues to provide views of cosmic wonders never before seen and is at the forefront of many new discoveries. In our Webcast Studio, we will have looping slideshows and videos sharing many of Hubble's most incredible images. Join us for a month-long celebration of the technology and imagery that has sharpened our perception of the universe. Included with museum admission.
