We live in a time of unprecedented scientific discovery. More people are looking at more issues in more detail and are formulating increasingly precise explanations for the observations. Astronomy is no exception. Hundreds of generations of naked-eye observations, have been supplemented by telescopes of increasing capability over the last four centuries, culminating in the Hubble Space Telescope. This progression has uncovered more and fainter objects at each step, but the “Hubble Deep Field” appears to suggest an end to this progress. We will discuss what we can (and can’t) see in these observations, and their significance in understanding our place in space.
Join us for an interesting lecture and discussion!
