OSHR 1522 - The "Big Picture" through the Hubble Space Telescope

  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Learn about the universe from the largest structures down to the smallest particles as told through Hubble images. For the past 23 years, the Hubble space telescope (HST) has provided us with hundreds of new discoveries and several thousands of images of the contents of our universe.

In this class we will explore the universe through the eyes of the HST. We will also talk about some of the major questions that hst has not been able to answer and how future observatories like the James Webb Space Telescope hope to give answers to these, and more importantly, more questions.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
