The Hubble Space Telescope: From Cosmological Conflict to Alien Atmospheres

Tom Brown, Space Telescope Science Institute

The Hubble Space Telescope is one of the most successful scientific experiments in history: It maps the accelerating expansion of the cosmos, explores distant galaxies in the early universe, reveals the birth of stellar systems, and probes planets orbiting our sun and other stars. As one of the largest telescopes ever launched into orbit, Hubble’s unique capabilities drive diverse discoveries across all of astrophysics and extend the work of other observatories on the ground and in space. Join Dr. Brown as he highlights some of Hubble’s most exciting results and our expectations for the coming decade.
