Dr. Carpenter will tell the story of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), which has now been in orbit for more than a quarter of a century and, despite rocky beginnings, has revolutionized Astronomy and the public’s perception of the Universe. He will chronicle the development and servicing of HST, show some of the best examples of what it has brought us, and discuss its impact on our culture. He will close with a few brief thoughts on future NASA astrophysics and exoplanet missions that will continue our ambitious efforts to “see what’s out there.”
