Hubble Space Telescope: New Views of the Universe
January 15, 2010 - August 28, 2010
This unique traveling exhibition contains images and video taken from the Hubble Space Telescope of planets, galaxies, black holes, and many other fascinating cosmic entities. Filled with numerous interactive displays, visitors will be able to “hit” Jupiter with a comet, attempt to put star clusters in order of age, estimate the number of galaxies in the universe, match before - and after images of colliding galaxies, use stars to calculate specific galaxy distances from Earth, and use an infrared camera to learn about the different wavelengths of light. The exhibition is an outstanding venue for presenting the spectacular images of the universe and the associated discoveries made with the Hubble Space Telescope.
