NSN Telecon:
Hubble’s Views of the Deep Universe
The Hubble Space Telescope has pioneered the exploration of the distant
universe with images known as the deep fields. The deep fields have given
astronomers unprecedented access to understanding how galaxies form and evolve
over the cosmic history of our universe, from shortly after the Big Bang to
today. For this Hubble 25th anniversary talk, I will offer a retrospective view
of Hubble’s contributions to the exploration of the deep universe, and offer
some fresh glimpses of what Hubble is currently doing to further our
understanding of the distant universe. I will also highlight some of Hubble’s
iconic imagery released this anniversary year. I will end with information on
how to learn more and resources for the Night Sky Network community.
