Benjamin Dean Lecture
Hubble's Greatest Hits
Dr. Chris Lintott
Department of Physics at University of Oxford
Monday, October 8th, 2012 at 7:30pm
The Hubble Space Telescope is the best known telescope in history, and the most successful. Its nearly 20 years of history have produced thousands of papers, and hundreds of thousands of images. Reviewing them all would take a lifetime, so luckily astronomer Dr. Chris Lintott has sorted through the archives to bring you his top ten Hubble images. Ranging from new views of our own little Solar System, through the first glimpses of worlds around other stars, this cosmic tour will make use of the incredible projection capabilities of the Grainger Sky Theatre to take Dr. Lintott's audience to the most distant galaxies.
