30 Years of the Hubble Space Telescope
Triumph From Disaster
After languishing on the ground for years, the Hubble Space Telescope could not be focused. The mirror had been figured to the wrong shape but with incredible precision. Once, corrected, the telescope went on to explore the Universe like no other before, giving us images of great beauty and detail. In this talk we will see some of these images including a 2 million second exposure and discover what they tell us about our Universe.
