Hubble Space Telescope

Hubble's Heritage

A tribute to the telescope that represents one of
the greatest achievements in all human history.


"Hubble's Heritage" not only features the visual beauty and magnificence of discoveries made with the Hubble Space Telescope, and but offers a perspective of how we got to where we are today. A quintessential planetarium presentation, "Hubble's Heritage" begins by telling seasons in the sky, guiding backyard telescopes to the most charming objects, witnessing images of grand earth-based telescopes, and explaining how Edwin Hubble himself co-discovered the expansion of the Universe.

Through breath-taking up-to-the-minute Hubble images, we are taken through space and time to cauldrons of star-birth, churning black holes, exploding stars, and colliding galaxies. We are transported 14 billion light years away to the very edge of the visible universe, and offered a glimpse back 14 billion years to the beginning of Time. We learn our place in the cosmos, and that no matter who we are, we are all made of stardust.
