Hubble?s New Miracle Camera
Science & Reason on Facebook: tinyurl.com Hubblecast Episode 40: Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) ? Hubble?s New Miracle Camera In early 2009, a team of astronauts visited Hubble to repair the wear and tear of twenty years of operating in a hostile environment ? and to install two new instruments, the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph, and Wide Field Camera 3 ? better known as WFC3. ? Please subscribe to Science & Reason: ? www.youtube.com ? www.youtube.com ? www.youtube.com ? www.youtube.com ? Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) is a combined ultraviolet, visible and infrared camera that dramatically extends Hubble?s ability to image astronomical objects. With these new capabilities, Hubble is still pushing the boundaries of science after two decades in orbit. In episode 30 of the Hubblecast, we saw some of the very first pictures to come back from Wide Field Camera 3, Hubble?s newest and most advanced instrument. Today we?re going to look at some of the science behind these pictures. We?ll find out how this remarkable new camera is helping Hubble to see the invisible, look far back in time and spot objects further away from us than ever before. WFC3 was installed on Hubble in place of WFPC2, the Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2, which for many years had been the main workhorse instrument on Hubble. Not only do the two instruments have very similar names, and look virtually identical, the capabilities of WFC3 are also in some respects just a tweaked version of those of its predecessor ?

Excellent scene from Spike Lee?s Do the Right Thing. Mookie and Pino argue about race which leads to a firestorm of racial slurs about almost every group of people. Very Powerful Scene. Samuel L was exactly right we need to ?cool out? and stop fighting amongst ourselves and take a look at the real opressor? revolutionhascome.blogspot.com
