30 Years Hubble | 30 Ans de Hubble : Une Révolution Astronomique

Event was held on Sunday, October 25, 2020.

The Hubble Space Telescope – launched into orbit on April 24, 1990 by the Space Shuttle Discovery – is a large, space-based observatory, which has revolutionized astronomy. Far above rain clouds, light pollution, and atmospheric distortions, Hubble has a crystal-clear view of the universe. Scientists have used Hubble to observe some of the most distant stars and galaxies yet seen, as well as the planets in our solar system. On the occasion of the instrument’s 30th anniversary, La Cité des sciences et de l’industrie (located in Paris, France) is organizing a live event with Charles Bolden (NASA Astronaut), Jean-François Clervoy (ESA Astronaut), Claude Nicollier (ESA Astronaut), Kathryn Sullivan (NASA Astronaut), Daniel Kunth (Astrophysicist, IAP Paris, France), Roger-Maurice Bonnet (ESA Science Director 1983-2001), and Lucie Leboulleux (Astrophysicist, LESIA, Paris, France). This event was recorded on Sunday, October 25, 2020.
