We know space is just ‘dark’ – or ‘black‘ – but Nasa’s Space Telescope: Hubble makes everything coming ‘alive‘ with their colour filters. Follow the link of Hubble and enjoy the wonderful world of our solar system. Hubble is going to retire in a few years time and will get replaced by a new space telescope called: WEBB Telescope. On THIS LINK you can read everything about Hubble, the Hubble-team, etc. On this next link you can play around with Hubble’s filters to see how NASA use it to ‘enhance‘ the photos for us.
On this link HERE you can read about the amazing new WEBB Telescope…
On THIS LINK you can play around with buttons to see how the colours affect the images. Don’t forget to click on the menu list in the far left as well.
Have you heard about SALT? SALT = Southern Africa Large Telescope – this telescope is in South Africa and is the largest space telescope in the Southern Hemisphere.
In this next video, you can see Astronaut Luca [from Italy] where he left the Quarantine Departure to get ready for going to the International Space Station [ISS]. On our class twitter account [@Y5Class] we follow @Astro_luca and also a lovely 15 year old girl – @AstronautAbb – Abigail’s dream is to go to Mars in 2030! She’s a great inspiration with what she’s currently doing. Here’s her website: http://astronautabby.com/ copy and paste it in your browser.
