The Hubble Space Telescope is arguably the most important astronomical instrument ever built. Dr. Robert Korechoff’s presentation will describe the Hubble Observatory and the advantages of a telescope in space, how the telescope was repaired on-orbit, and what the Hubble Space Telescope has contributed to our understanding of the universe.
Dr. Korechoff has been an aerospace and optical engineer for 43 years; the last 26 years as an optical engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. He was involved with the design and building of the second generation Wide Field/Planetary Camera. This camera was the principal imaging instrument for the Hubble Space Telescope for 15 years.
