Handprints on Hubble, The Hubble Space Telescope has revolutionized our understanding of the universe. It has, among many other achievements, revealed thousands of galaxies in what seemed to be empty patches of sky, transformed our knowledge of black holes, found dwarf planets with moons orbiting other stars and measured precisely how fast the universe is expanding. In Handprints on Hubble, retired astronaut Kathryn Sullivan describes her work on the NASA team that made all of this possible. Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space and one of the first six women to join NASA’s storied astronaut corps, recounts how she and other astronauts, engineers, and scientists launched, rescued, repaired, and maintained Hubble, the most productive observatory ever built.This author talk took place at the MIT Press Bookstore and was recorded by Rock Louis. Produced by CCTV.
