Hubble telescope

In its 25 years in  orbit, the Hubble Space Telescope has had a great impact on our ability to visualize the universe.  The job of processing the digital images sent by the telescope belongs to Zoltan Levay, who works in the Office of Public Outreach at the Space Telescope Science Institute.

Kansas City, Mo. – Galaxies, black holes and supernova: for most of us, they are the mysteries of our universe. For UMKC physics professor Daniel McIntosh, it's his life's work. He is part of a team of over 100 scientists, led by University of California scientist Sandra Faber, who will be using the newest and most advanced version of the Hubble Space Telescope to survey the heavens during a three year period.
