Space between galaxies investigated by Hubble
It is hard to believe that it has been 25 years since Hubble was launched. A few years ago I had the great privilege of seeing the Hubble I MAX movie, narrated by Leonardo Decaprio, highlighting Hubble’s accomplishments over its life span and discussing it’s fourth and final servicing mission. The movie was wondrous, full of amazing imagery. It told the tale of the risks the space shuttle crew undertook in order to make that final servicing mission happen. It was a tremendous tribute to our amazing Window on the Universe.
With the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Hubble, a review of its contributions to science and astronomy comes in a series of articles. This is the first of these that I have seen.
