Title: 
Institute Educator Will Lead Workshop for British Queen
Object Name: 
HUDF
General Information: 
What is a News Nugget? News Nuggets are bulletins from the world of astronomy. Queen Elizabeth II will learn about NASA education tomorrow, May 8, when she visits NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Bonnie Eisenhamer, the Hubble Space Telescope Formal Education Manager at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Md., will lead an education workshop for local middle school students during the Queen's Goddard visit. This tapestry of galaxies represents a small piece of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF). Imaged September 2003 through January 2004, the HUDF is the deepest visible-light view of the cosmos. This snapshot includes galaxies of various ages, sizes, shapes, and colors. During the workshop, students will use the image to classify the galaxies in the HUDF by shape and color. By analyzing the HUDF image, the students will learn how light is used to explore the universe. Read more: * The Full Story [ http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2007/21/full/ ]

*Description*: This tapestry of galaxies represents a small piece of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF), taken from September 2003 through January 2004 by the Hubble Space Telescope. The HUDF is the deepest visible-light view of the cosmos and includes galaxies of various ages, sizes, shapes, and colors. The image is part of an exploration activity for students at a NASA education workshop planned for Queen Elizabeth II's visit. Students will study the HUDF image and classify the galaxies by shape and color. By analyzing the HUDF image, students will learn how light is used to explore the universe.
