Students got their "hands on the Hubble" in Spring 1996, but the project continues to provide an insiders' view of what it's like to work with Earth's most powerful space telescope!
LIVE FROM THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE features another educational first: students helped select targets for the Hubble Space Telescope, humanity's most powerful eye on the heavens. Actively mentored by professional astronomers, students debated online and chose to assign one orbit to Pluto and two to Neptune. The observations and results were presented during live broadcasts from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and the Space Telescope Science Institute.
