Hubblecast 89: Edwin Hubble

10 December 2015

When you hear the name “Hubble”, you probably think of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. But, decades before the Hubble Space Telescope, Dr Edwin Powell Hubble revolutionised the field of astronomy. In the newest Hubblecast, we take a look at the life and work of this brilliant American astronomer for whom the Hubble Space Telescope is named.

You can subscribe to the Hubblecasts in iTunes, receive future episodes on YouTube or follow us on Vimeo.
