Course ID - CTD0421-7               

Short Title: Hubble Images

 Audience    Faculty
Length of Workshop:       1 hour 

Since its launch in 1990 by the Space Shuttle Discovery, the Hubble Space Telescope has been an important instrument for improving our understanding of the cosmos. Join Dr. Webb for a pictorial journey through the universe, from our local Solar System out into the Milky Way and beyond to other galaxies, exploring images sent back by the Hubble. Dr. Webb will share with participants the excitement astronomers feel when they discover new things about the universe we all live in, such as the Hubble Ultra Deep Field Image, which launched hundreds of scientific papers, and shows the most distant galaxies we have ever seen.


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  •  Incorporate into their science lesson plans an overview of the Hubble Space Telescope and its functions
  •  Explain to students how this instrument has been a key factor in improving our understanding of the cosmos in general
