Hugging the Hubble: Personal Reflections on the Hubble Space Telescope

Sunday10/189:00 am - 9:00 pm

On the 30th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope, Professor Bob Benjamin of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater shares some of his personal reflections on the triumphs and the trials of the Hubble Space Telescope. The title comes from a June 1999 speech by the then-direcor of NASA, Dan Goldin, to the American Astronomical Society who told the collected astronomers there that they needed to “quit hugging the Hubble Space Telescope.” Twenty years later, we’re still holding tight, but there are new telescopes on the horizon that we expect will finally supplant the Hubble Space Telescope.
