The rocket traveled for two point five seconds going about sixty miles per hour and soaring forty-one feet in the air then landed one hundred eighty-four feet away. The first fueled rocket influenced the wonderful space travel of today, it is the reason NASA even started! The great accomplishment of Goddard in 1926 is the reason of the accomplishments today! Robert left thousands of people in awe, especially the government. They didn’t want to fund to get the materials of the rocket therefore; he had to pay for it out of his own pocket with some help of Clark University.

Also, the telescope has come a very long way from what it used to be. The thought of having a telescope in space able to take pictures of celestial objects outside of the Milky Way never even came close to crossing scientists minds. All the pictures the Hubble has taken have been released to the public allowing people of all ages to marvel at their beauty. Many people enjoy looking and learning from the photographs.
She kept studying at the Atheneum, discussed astronomy with scientists who visited Nantucket (including William C. Bond), and kept studying the sky through her father's lent telescope. In the mid-nineteenth century, new developments in astronomy were expanding the field at an fast and exciting rate. The Mitchells were aware that the King of Denmark awarded a gold metal to anyone who discovered a "telescopic" comet. No one in America had won that award yet. On the night of October 1, 1847 Maria Mitchell discovered a comet just above the North Star.
Over 6000 scientific articles have been published based on Hubble data, with some of its discoveries being so significant that NASA would have needed multiple satellite missions to accomplish the same results. Its importance to me is based on my lifelong interest in astronomy, and the galaxy we live in. It's importance to others, such as NASA and Astronomers around the world, is due to the fact that Hubble is currently the leading source for new information and ground-breaking discoveries when it comes to deep space, But after a stalled launch in 1985, 5 repair missions since it's beginning, and billions of dollars in funding, I asked myself: Is Hubble worth it? As part of my research for this question I read two article related to the Hubble space telescope: An article from NASA’s official website titled ‘Hubble: The Essentials’ and an article from the New York Times titled ‘Is Space Exploration Worth the Cost’ by Stephen J. Dubner. Both articles played a direct part in my question and its answer: What does Hubble do?
With some tweaks, he soon had a 10 power-telescope. From here, he demonstrated this it a Senate, and his salary was raised, and honored with proclamations. This shows how smart Galilei was, being able to construct his own telescope with nothing but his brain. This however, was not the end of Galilei. As he was doing his nightly observations, one day he saw an object that many believed it w... ... middle of paper ... ...his moon.
That is one of the reasons they put his name first. Alan Hale comments, "I love the irony -- I've spent over 400 hours of my life looking for comets, and haven't found anything, and now, suddenly, when I'm not looking for one, I get one dumped in my lap. I had obtained an observation of P/Clark earlier, and needed to wait an hour or so before P/d'Arrest got high enough to look at, and was just passing the time til then, and I decided to look at some deep-sky objects in Sagittarius. When I turned to M70, I saw a fuzzy object in the same field, and almost immediately suspected a comet, since I had been looking at M70 last month, and *knew* there wasn't any other objects there." Thomas Bopp explains his story like this, "On the night of July 22, 1995 some friends and I headed out into the desert for a dark of the moon observing session.

We find something we like, use it, they forget about it and go on to the next bigger thing.
Still, having subcategories such as "Gas Giants", "Terrestrial Planets (Pluto being one of them)" and "Asteroids". They also thought that Pluto belonged there (Dwarf Planets) and it would more interesting to study it in that way. For instance, some scientists though that this was a chance to teach kids that this is the nature of science. Things are always changing so does our thoughts of how the solar system works. On the other hand, many more astronomers disagreed on this situation which lead to a couple of protests be... ... middle of paper ... ... try to analyse how good they covered the topic, you'll find that the topic was ignored unless it involved the public in it.
Despite the trouble it has given engineers and astronauts since its launch, the Hubble space telescope has led to dozens of scientific breakthroughs and has changed the way humankind sees the universe. The telescope is the culmination of ten years of hard work done by over 10,000 scientists and engineers. It cost 1.5 billion dollars at launch(HubbleSite). Hubble is 13.3 meters long and weighs 24,500 pounds (Garner), and despite its immense size, has the pointing accuracy of hitting a dime with a laser pointer—from 20 miles away! The telescope launched aboard the shuttle Discovery in 1990 and the world waited in anticipation of the first images.
The Man Behind Hubble: Bob Williams Four weeks after space-walking shuttle Endeavour astronauts repaired the Hubble Space Telescope in December 1993, an ecstatic Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski waved a Hubble picture of the core of the spiral galaxy M100 at her naysaying colleagues. Today, Mikulski could host a Capitol Hill star party: The orbiting telescope has generated more than 100,000 photos of celestial objects, including a cemetery of dying stars, elephant trunks of dust and hydrogen gas twisting in the Eagle Nebula, jovian storms and aurorae, the rocky rings of Saturn and the colossal supernova smoke rings blown from an exploded star, to list a few. Hubble's pictures do double duty not only as congressional lobbying props, but also as screen savers, T-shirt prints, calendar photos, a background for the "Babylon 5" science fiction TV series and even planet trading cards to be provided soon to schoolchildren. One of the most electrifying pictures of all, the Hubble Deep Field image began literally as a shot in the dark: the sum of 342 exposures taken with Hubble's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 in December 1995 of a black speck of northern sky. Although the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet impact on Jupiter may have generated a bigger media splash, astronomers still are agog over the Deep Field.
