Hubble Space Telescope book the focus of author’s talk at PG Astronomical Society Zoom presentation April 16

Prince George Astronomical Society’s monthly Zoom presentation will feature Dr. Chris Gainor.

Gainor is the author of six books about space exploration and aeronautics, including his latest book Not Yet Imagined: A Study of Hubble Space Telescope Operations, which has just been published by NASA and is available for download from NASA. Gainor is also editor of Quest: The History of Spaceflight Quarterly and Past President of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.

For a few years early in the lifetime of the Hubble Space Telescope, time on telescope was made available to amateur astronomers. This talk will feature the story of the amateurs who got to use the world’s top space telescope and some of the opportunities still available for amateurs to use Hubble Space Telescope data.

The Zoom presentation will be on April 16 at 7:30 p.m. via Zoom. The astronomical society will be posting a zoom link on its observatory Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PGRASC/
