Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Hubble Space Telescope Hubble Space Telescope How it Changed our View On Space How Fast it Travels How it Works The Hubble Space Telescope has six cameras and sensors that are used to see visible infrared and ultraviolet light. In the center of the Hubble there is a primary mirror that has a diameter of 2.4 meters. When light strikes the mirror it is reflected onto a secondary mirror through a hole. Then it would reach a focal point at the science instruments, the complex path that the light travels through increases the telescope's focal length. The Hubble Space Telescope travels extremely fast. This telescope in orbit travels 4.66 miles per second! It takes 97 minutes for the Hubble to orbit the Earth once. You can calculate how many times the Hubble orbits Earth in one day by dividing 1440 by 94. The Hubble Space Telescope orbits the Earth 15.319 times in one day. The Hubble Space Telescope has changed our view on space over time. No telescope before The Hubble had the resolution to see distant galaxies. NASA let the Hubble soak up light for ten days, they thought they were wasting time. When they looked at what the Hubble found they saw 3,000 galaxies large and small. These discoveries change our view on space and are very important. About the Hubble Space Telescope The Hubble Space Telescope was one of NASA's greatest space missions, it was successful and long lasting. The Hubble was first launched on April 24, 1990. It was named after an astronomer named Edwin Powell Hubble who was well known for the Hubble Sequence. NASA uses the Hubble to create thousands of important scientific documents.
