Videos About the Hubble Telescope and More

Yesterday, I shared a video about and link to a Google Earth tour featuring imagery captured by the Hubble telescope. This evening I came across a series of videos produced about the Hubble telescope, the technology behind it, and the imagery it has captured. The videos also get into a discussion of theories about the formation of planets and the universe. There are ten videos in all, I've embedded the first three in the series below.

Hubble Telescope Tour in Google Earth

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Hubble Telescope Google released a new Google Earth tour of imagery captured by Hubble. The tour takes place in Google Earth Sky View. You can download the tour here or watch a preview in the video below.

Applications for Education
Space Science is a semester course offered by the science department at my school. This Google Earth tour could be a good visual aid that goes beyond simply looking at static images captured by the Hubble Telescope.
