Podcast: The Hubble Space Telescope
The world’s most iconic space telescope has orbited Earth for 31 years peering back into the Universe’s distant past and producing over 1.5 million scientific observations.
In this short podcast, astrophysicist Dr Or Graur, talks about how he uses the Hubble Space Telescope to inform his research on supernovae – the explosions of stars.
He also talks about the Hubble’s successor, the James Webb Space Telescope, and what will happen to the Hubble once it’s eventually discontinued.
Dr Graur’s new book, Supernova, will be released on 8 February, 2022, and is available for pre-order now.
