Embrace The Space Telescope
|Once upon a time, human beings looked to the heavens and
imagined a flat surface, changing throughout the day by the
power of gods. Now, more than ever before, human beings look
to the nightime sky and see the universe. We see farther and
more clearly, making it easier to embrace space.
|More than any other scientific development, the Hubble
Space Telescope is enabling ordinary people to appreciate
the beauty and magnitude of the universe. In honor of Space
Day (May 22), Amy has put together this list of outstanding
Hubble Space Telescope webpages. Use them to extend your
reach as you "embrace space."
