Lesson 2 - The Hubble Telescope
In this lesson, students will look at how improvements in technology can lead to a better understanding of our Universe; its age, how it began, its characteristics and major components. One of the most important technological advances of the last 20 years was the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble has greatly increased our understanding of the Universe and continues to make new discoveries on a regular basis. In this exercise, students will learn about the Hubble telescope, what it does, when it was put into service and who it was named after.
