Hubble Space Lecture

Free booking required at:

Since its launch, the Hubble Space Telescope has become one of the most extraordinary and beloved space science missions. But the telescope was not an immediate success – without the work performed by the STS-61 crew, including astronomer and NASA astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman, the Hubble could have been a scientific disaster.

Dr Hoffman will explain what led to Hubble’s initial problems, recall his shuttle experience and discuss how those repairs have led to the telescope becoming one of the greatest science instruments ever built.
