Before the Hubble
Space Telescope was launched, scientists thought
they knew the universe. They were wrong.
The Hubble Space Telescope has changed many scientists’
view of the universe. The telescope is named for
American astronomer Edwin Hubble, 1. He established that many galaxies exist
and developed the first system for their classifications.
In many ways, Hubble is like any other telescope.
It simply gathers light. It is roughly the size
of a large school bus. What makes Hubble special
is not what it is, 2.
Hubble was launched in 1990 from the "Discovery"
space shuttle and it is about 350 miles above
our planet, 3. It is far from the glare of city lights,
it doesn’t have to look through the air, 4. And what a view it is! Hubble is so powerful
it could spot a fly on the moon.
Yet in an average orbit, it uses the same amount
of energy as 28 100-watt light bulbs. Hubble
pictures require no film. The telescope takes
digital images 5. Hubble has snapped photos of storms on Saturn
and exploding stars. Hubble doesn’t just focus
on our solar system. It also peers into our galaxy
and beyond. Many Hubble photos show the stars
that make up the Milky Way galaxy. A galaxy is
a city of stars.
Hubble cannot take pictures of the sun or other
very bright objects, because doing so could "fry”
the telescope’s instruments, but it can detect
infrared and ultra violet light 6. Some of the sights of our solar system that
Hubble has glimpsed may even change the number
of planets in it.
is above Earth’s atmosphere. B. which are transmitted to scientists
on Earth. C. which is invisible to the
human eye. D. who calculated the speed at
which galaxies move E. so it has a clear view of
space. F. because many stars are in
clouds of gas. G. but where it is.
