9-26-2011: Hurray for Hubble!
The last time we interviewed Dr. Matt Mountain, direct of the Space Telescope Science Institute, he shared various insights about high-level astrophysicists planning experiments on the Hubble Space Telescope. But what he was really excited about, as he left the studio, was a big envelope he’d just gotten from a fifth-grader at Baltimore’s Garrett Heights Elementary in Lauraville.
Inside the envelope was a 20-page spiral-bound book about the Hubble, some pages hand-printed, some typed, lots of pictures – some photographs, many hand-drawn illustrations, eight chapters plus a glossary. It’s titled, “The Hubble in Space!” by NajahEllington.
Najah Ellington , along with Dr. Matt Mountain and Najah’s math teacher, Sandra Knutson join us in the studio to talk to us about out of this world education.
