Hubblecast Episode 40: Wide Field Camera 3 — Hubble’s New Miracle Camera
29 October 2010
In early 2009 a team of astronauts visited Hubble and, as part of their mission, installed a new camera: the WFC3. As well as providing scientists with higher resolution observations than ever before, the pictures provided by WFC3 are among Hubble’s prettiest yet.
This episode of the Hubblecast looks at the science behind this instrument, including how it is helping Hubble to see the invisible, look far back in time and spot objects further away from us than those seen by any other telescope in history.
