Much of what we know today about Earth is from images taken by cameras on powerful telescopes. Edwin Hubble changed our view of the universe. Working in an observatory, he found that there are other galaxies besides the Milky Way. He also showed that the universe is still growing. Lyman Spitzer, Jr. proposed placing telescopes in space, and in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope was launched. It sends us amazing images of the universe.
Long ago, astronomers believed that the Earth was the center of the universe. But now we know that it is only a tiny part of the universe and that our solar system is just a tiny part of our galaxy. In 1957, space travel began. Work done in space has helped us in the areas of medicine, computer science, and the environment. The International Space Station, a lab floating in space, is where astronauts do experiments that help us on Earth. The next manned trip to the moon is planned for 2018.
