On November 3, 2015, I gave a presentation called “Hubble’s Views of the Deep Universe”. This presentation was to commemorate some of Hubble’s most influential observing campaigns during this 25th anniversary year. Of course, I could not get to all of Hubble’s programs that observed the deep universe in just an hour. For additional information, check out the science articles on the Hubble 25th website and, of course, keep checking back to this blog.Dr. Brandon Lawton “Hubble’s Views of the Deep Universe”
November 3, 2015
For two decades, the Hubble Space Telescope has pioneered the exploration of the distant universe with images known as the “deep fields”. These deep fields have given astronomers unprecedented access to understanding how galaxies form and develop over billions of years in the history of our universe, from shortly after the Big Bang to today. Join us for a retrospective view of Hubble’s contributions to the investigation of the deep reaches of the cosmos and some fresh glimpses of what Hubble is currently doing to further our understanding of the most distant parts of the universe.
This lecture is part of the monthly public lecture series at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. Each month addresses a different cosmic topic, usually related to Hubble, but always venturing to some fascinating part of the universe. For more information, check out the web page on HubbleSite:
