Hubblecast Episode 41: Hubble's History Told by Hubble's Scientists

14 December 2010

Hubble’s history of scientific breakthroughs has made us think afresh about our Universe. But behind the astronomical successes is a rollercoaster ride of scientific and technical challenges going back decades. The Hubblecast caught up with some of the key players in Hubble’s history, including an astronaut, a Nobel Prize winner and one of the scientists who diagnosed Hubble’s blurred vision in 1990. In this episode, narrated by veteran ESA scientist Bob Fosbury, they tell Hubble’s story through their personal experiences.
