Join us Thursday, April 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the Fiske Planetarium on the campus of the University of Colorado Boulder to hear "Colorado Matters" host Ryan Warner and CU-Boulder astronomer Doug Duncan discuss the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) 25 years after its launch.

When you attend this live event, you'll witness radio in the making while learning about this telescope, which was launched in 1990 and remains in operation today. In addition to Duncan, who is director of the planetarium, Colorado scientists who have worked with the HST will share stories and information about this famous NASA device.

The event is free and open to the public. For tickets and information, call 303-492-5002 Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. or email [email protected].

Ahead of the event, listen to this 2010 "Colorado Matters" interview with aerospace engineer Dennis Ebbets who worked on the HST.
