NASA’s Incredible Discovery Machine: The Story of the Hubble Space Telescope



Hubble’s launch and deployment in April 1990 marked the most significant advance in astronomy since Galileo’s telescope. Thanks to five servicing missions and more than 30 years of operation, our view of the universe and our place within it has never been the same.

This documentary celebrates not only the scientific and technological achievements of this telescope, but also the human spirit that’s helped to keep it up and operational for all these years.

On the outside of Hubble ……
"OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE LIGHTYEARS CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR."

Because telescopes work using mirrors…

22.49 Where is the sun? Why solar panels are reflecting light but the telescope is in the shadow?

24.55 Windy in space? Why there is light reflected from shadows?

25.17 to 25.27 Windy in space? What makes it turn 180 degrees?

27.04 Where is the sun? Do they have multiple light sources? Why objects in the shadows are visible?

39.13 Is the sun at the upper right? Why stuff in the shadows are visible? Why does light grow in the vacuum?

49:56 your answer did not gave you something much more important to you or anyone else EVERLASTING LIFE.
