25 Years of Exploration and Wonder

  • Apr 23, 2015


It was 25 years ago today that the Hubble Space Telescope took off for orbit as a passenger aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery, carrying with it our hopes and dreams for an unprecedented view of the cosmos.

And the results, as they say, speak for themselves (below).

NASA is celebrating the silver anniversary of this momentous achievement and inviting teachers to do the same via a resource-packed web platform called HubbleSite, which includes a large collection of STEM-based, K-12 classroom materials, free eBooks, high-quality printable posters and much, much more.

Visit HubbleSite today.

And to stay abreast of other great free educational resources, be sure to bookmark this site and follow DIRECTV Goes to School on Twitter.

Note: NASA TV is channel 346 in your DIRECTV SCHOOL CHOICE programming package.
