Hubble telescope

Mānoa Assistant Astronomer Lisa Kewley speaks about the Hubble Space Telescope: Past, Present and Future, Dec. 3, 3:30 p.m., at Hamilton 301. The Hubble Space Telescope has made a great impact on researchers’s knowledge of the Universe, from planets in the solar system to nearby stars to extremely distant galaxies.

Kewley will present an overview of the major discoveries made by the HST and will describe current research by UH astronomers that combines data from the HST with data from the largest ground-based telescopes on Mauna Kea. She will report on the present status of the HST and will present its successor, the James Webb Space Telescope. Download the flyer. (808) 956-8688
