Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble: a brief history of the most famous telescope in history

Dr Chris Lintott, co-presenter of the 'Sky at Night' and researcher at the University of Oxford, will tell the story of the Hubble Space Telescope.

In August, astronauts aboard the space shuttle Atlantis will carry out one of the most difficult repairs in history, restoring the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to full working order.

Since its launch in 1990, HST has overcome the problem of its flawed mirror to produce a multitude of important scientific discoveries. This lecture will tell its story, and look forward to discoveries still to be made.
