The Hubblecast wins a Parsec Award
This image, a screenshot from an episode of ESA/Hubble's video podcast series the Hubblecast, shows the series' host Dr. J, aka Dr. Joe Liske.
Exploring Hubble's discoveries, stunning images, complex topics within astronomy, the future of the space telescope and more, the Hubblecast releases 10 episodes annually and maintains an exceptionally high standard of visual and audio production.
It was previously recognised for its excellence in 2011 by the MEDEA awards (ann1123), when a panel of judges "highly commended" the series for its innovation and good practice in the use of media in education. It has now been awarded a Parsec Award for best "Fact Behind the Fiction" podcast series. From a final shortlist of 5, an international panel of judges considered the Hubblecast to best portray the facts — including the science, history, culture, and mythology — that influence and inspire speculative fiction podcasting.
This image is taken from Hubblecast 65: A whole new view of the Horsehead Nebula, an episode released earlier in 2013 to celebrate Hubble's 23rd birthday.
