Hubble Space Telescope: New Views From the Universe is a 2,200-square-foot exhibit that immerses visitors in the magnificence and mystery of the Hubble mission and introduces the James Webb Space Telescope. The exhibit features a scale model of the Hubble Space Telescope as well as several “satellite” units that not only provide viewers with a hands-on experience with the same technology that allows Hubble to gaze at distant galaxies, but also feature Hubble's contributions to the exploration of planets, stars, galaxies and the universe. Exhibit viewers will also learn about the various instruments aboard the telescope. The exhibit contains images and data taken by Hubble of planets, galaxies, regions around black holes and many other fascinating cosmic entities that have captivated the minds of scientists for centuries. This exhibition is sponsored by Thompson Engineering and WKRG TV-5.
