HUBBLE: Window to the Universe
The Hubble Space Telescope is one of the greatest technological achievements in our history, and for two decades has astonished us with dynamic images of our solar system and the world beyond. To celebrate this important twenty-year milestone, NASA looks back at the contributions of this extraordinary scientific tool, and the scientists who created it, in an engrossing documentary entitled “Hubble: Twenty Years of Discovery”.
Webb Space Telescope – The Next Great Observatory
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is a large, infrared-optimized space telescope, scheduled for launch in 2014. JWST will find the first galaxies that formed in the early Universe, connecting the Big Bang to our own Milky Way Galaxy. JWST will peer through dusty clouds to see stars forming planetary systems, connecting the Milky Way to our own Solar System. JWST’s instruments will be designed to work primarily in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum, with some capability in the visible range.
JWST will have a large mirror, 6.5 meters (21.3 feet) in diameter and a sunshield the size of a tennis court. Both the mirror and sunshade won’t fit onto the rocket fully open, so both will fold up and open once JWST is in outer space. JWST will reside in an orbit about 1.5 million km (1 million miles) from the Earth.
Two quasars have been caught in the act of merging, thanks to this new image.

NASA | Operation IceBridge: A Science Lab in the Arctic Sky
One of the keys to gathering data for Operation IceBridge is a highly modified McDonnell Douglas DC-8 jetliner, which NASA operates as a flying science laboratory. This workhorse DC-8 can fly long trips, allowing a suite of scientific instruments to study the Arctic ice sheet, glaciers and sea ice.

Obama’s NASA plan and affordable access to space – 3.14
Obama went to Kennedy Space Center in Florida to talk about his plan for NASA. We dissect a few of his statements to see where this organization may be going.We’re also joined by John Powel who is the author of “Floating to Space”. This is a fascinating interview showing how balloons not only can get us to space affordably, but how he is doing it right now! Sound crazy? Maybe a bit, but you’ve already seen his work in commercials from Toshiba and he can put some of your work in to space *today* using this technology. It may just be crazy enough to work!
