Hello!
Flavio Mendez, NSTA

Great location for Hubble, above the atmosphere
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
02:56:29
Awesome!
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
02:56:36
Ahhh!
Miranda
02:56:45
Those pictures are amazing.
Verna

Who remembers this event in 1994 - the collision between a comet and Jupiter
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:03:09
Nice!
Liliia Khmarskaia
03:03:11
that amazing to see shadow of the moons
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:03:32
Galilean Moons!
Mike
03:03:52
cool stuff
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:04:26
Shadows of the moon on the surface of the planet - those are solar eclipses on the "surface" of Jupiter
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:06:17
Dust storms on Mars!
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:06:59
Interesting!
Mike
03:07:26
need to bring more batteries next time : )

My class is studying to go to the Challenger Center in Hazard, KY in a few weeks. We are studying Mars. Is there a place where we can observe Mars from the Hubble?

Because you can only focus on one thing at a time, solar system research (and beyond), is limited by having so few telescopes in space. Why isn't more money spent observing our universe? And what are your hopes/thoughts about the James Webb?

The Mars Ed web site and the Mars Student Imaging Project are great - at ASU https://marsed.asu.edu/
Tstapleton
03:10:49
Awesome! Thank you so much! My students are so excited to be studying Mars. :)

are all of the planets considered to be the same age as earth [which i think is about 3.7 billion yrs.]?
Mike
03:11:24
So there is great wind on mars that's causing the storm?
amy.porter
03:11:40
Earth is 4.6 billion years
Brynn Makela
03:12:03
@williamduke I think 3.7 is first life forms you are thinking of

Since mars’ atmosphere is largely carbon dioxide, what composes its clouds?
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:16:37
New discoveries!
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:17:01
Pluto's growing family!
amy.porter
03:17:48
Has Pluto been reclassified as a Dwarf Planet or is it still a Plutoid?
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:18:25
You are listening to Max Mutchler from Space Telescope Science Institute

Amazing!

03:19:12
Cool
Liliia Khmarskaia
03:21:11
That was cool, I read a lot about this interstellar visiter
Meredith
03:22:12
My students and I were discussing the pictures from Hubble. They want to know, why Hubble can’t take color photos?
williamduke
03:24:32
what will ultimately happen to the hubble telescope? i.e. when it is outdated. and is the webb telescope a radio telescope [or something other than visible light]?
Mike
03:25:22
Just curious, do you still make use of Bode's law to seek potential new planets?
Mike
03:32:40
Thanks for the answer.
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:33:34
Great questions everyone! - Thank you!
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
03:34:26
James Webb Space Telescope - located at L2 after launch in 2021
Denise
03:34:31
Question, though, how do you maintain it ? Or how do you fix a mirror if it is needed ?
stuartsharack
03:40:56
How do you convince the public that this distant object research and exploration is worth supporting the funding?
Brynn Makela
03:41:23
The next decadal survey will be in 2020; what do you think the exploration priorities will be? Where can we plebians follow along :) ?
Don Boonstra
03:48:05
One of the critical things is the money is spent here not in space. So many people have jobs because of the research and exploration done.
