NASA's Great Observatories

NASA's Great Observatories In-Person

Come and join us for our next NASA program with Jim Porter about NASA’s Great Observatories! NASA has discovered distant mysteries of the universe for the past 30 years using four awesome orbiting observatories.

Headlined by the Hubble Space Telescope, these four scientific instruments include the Chandra X-ray Telescope which was built in Rochester, the Compton Gamma-ray Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope for Infra-red imaging ─ replaced by the James Webb Space Telescope. This constellation is engineered to sample a large portion of the electro-magnetic spectrum and allow us to detect objects that cannot be seen from the surface of the earth.

Jim Porter worked for over two decades as an aerospace engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA and Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. His presentations are popular, engaging, and easy to listen to for all levels.
