Presentation Transcript: | Slide 2 Hubble | Slide 3 The Hubble Space Telescope is a robotic telescope located on the outer edge of the atmosphere, in circular orbit around the Earth at 593 km above sea level, with an orbital period between 96 and 97 minutes at a speed 28,000 km / h. Named as a tribute to Edwin Hubble, was launched into orbit on 24 April 1990 as a joint project of NASA and ESA, thus inaugurating the Great Observatories program. Cylindrically shaped Hubble weighs 11 tons. Its length is 13.2 m and its maximum diameter is 4.2 meters. The telescope can obtain images with higher optical resolution 0.1 seconds of arc. | Slide 4 The International Space Station | Slide 5 View from inside the ship | Slide 6 Hubble | Slide 7 Galaxy Hat, also called M 104 in the Messier catalog, distance of about 28 million light-years it is considered the best photograph taken by Hubble | Slide 8 Second best is the famous nebula MZ3, called Fourmi, between 3000 and 6000 light years | Slide 9 Third is the Eskimo Nebula NGC 2392 located 5000 light years | Slide 10 Fourth, we can recognize the impressive Nebula Cat's Eye | Slide 11 Fifth, here is the Hourglass Nebula located 8000 light years away, a beautiful nebula with a narrowing in its central part. | Slide 12 In sixth place we see the Cone Nebula, 2.5 light-years | Slide 13 Seventh, we find a fragment of the Swan Nebula, located at 5500 light years away, described as "a bubbling ocean of hydrogen with small amounts of oxygen, sulfur and other elements" | Slide 14 Eighth, a beautiful picture called "Starry Night" | Slide 15 In ninth place, two swirling galaxies, the NGC 2207 and IC 2163 located 114 million light-years. | Slide 16 Tenth, we see a fragment of the Trifid Nebula, a stellar cradle to 9000 light-years. | Slide 17 More pictures from Hubble | Slide 18 Voyager 1 | Slide 19 Current Status of Voyager 1 (102 A-U) | Slide 20 The dwarf planet 2003 UB 313 (Eris) | Slide 21 Halley Comet | Slide 22 M16: Eagle Nebula | Slide 23 M57: Ring Nebula | Slide 24 Nebula RCW 79 | Slide 25 NGC 2237: The Rosette Nebula | Slide 26 M42: Orion Nebula | Slide 27 Proto-star | Slide 28 Milky Way (the red mark indicates our Sun) | Slide 29 Black hole | Slide 30 NGC 4414 | Slide 31 Earth with clouds | Slide 32 Earth without clouds | Slide 33 The Earth with the moon rising | Slide 34 The Earth with the New Moon | Slide 35 The Earth with the Full Moon | Slide 36 The Sun with the atmosphere | Slide 37 Atmosphere without the sun | Slide 38 Venus cloudless | Slide 39 Venus with clouds | Slide 40 Mercury | Slide 41 Mars | Slide 42 Phobos and Deimos in orbit around Mars | Slide 43 Jupiter | Slide 44 The 8 closest satellites orbiting Jupiter | Slide 45 Saturn | Slide 46 Satellites in orbit around Saturn | Slide 47 Uranus | Slide 48 Satellites orbiting Uranus | Slide 49 Neptune | Slide 50 Satellites in orbit around Neptune (except Nereides) | Slide 51 Nereid and Triton orbits Neptune | Slide 52 Pluto | Slide 53 Charon orbiting Pluto | Slide 54 The Milky Way | Slide 55 Last is the Eagle Nebula or M16 in the constellation Serpens in the middle of the starry night. On the inside, clusters of young stars are in the process of creation, creating a wonderful spectacle of gaseous emissions. | Slide 57 Thème musical: BO de “Blade Runner” LMG Décembre 2008
