Humbly about Hubble
I am surprised ... How would I even dare to write about the Hubble Space Telescope.
I have been always fascinated by the Images sent by the Hubble and just want to share a bit of that magic .... nothing academic ... no pretensions of knowledge.
The Hubble Space Telescope orbits the Earth and is able to capture images of the Universe without the distortions caused by the Earth's atmosphere. Scientists have learnt about the age of the Universe, various stages of evolution of galaxies and so much more like the dark energy, quasars .............
For a lay person like me, the spectacular images sent by Hubble are mind boggling and liberating.
The Hubblesite (http://hubblesite.org/) best describes it... Out of the ordinary .... out of this world.......
