On April 24, 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope was launched into
orbit aboard the space shuttle Discovery. Fifteen years later,
Hubble has revolutionized views of the universe for both the
professional and the layman. Although designed to do cutting
edge astronomy, Hubble's amazingly detailed images have also
captured the public's imagination, and taken all of mankind on
a remarkable journey through the cosmos. Dr. Summers will
present not only the most beautiful images from Hubble, but
also provide the scientific insight that renders them even more
stunning.

Lectures on a diverse selection of cosmic topics are held
the first Tuesday of every month at 8 PM in the STScI
Auditorium, located at 3700 San Martin Drive on the Homewood
campus of Johns Hopkins University. Admission is free and free
