Hubblecast 68: The Hubble time machine

The ESA astronomy podcast, bringing you the latest from the Hubble Space Telescope

30 August 2013

For episode 68 of the Hubblecast, Hubble transforms into more than just a telescope — it becomes a time machine! How can Hubble "look back in time" to see the Universe as it was billions of years ago? Dr. J explores the vast scale of our Universe, explaining how Hubble can be used to grasp cosmic distances, view very distant galaxies, and even explore our own past.
