Constellations: Wonders Within DLESE Reviewed Collection
This poster series highlights six astronomical images observed with NASA?s Great Observatories (Hubble, Chandra and Spitzer) and found within the "From Earth to the Universe" (FETTU) exhibition. Each poster contains additional information on the historical context of the astronomical objects (constellation, view with the unaided eye), as well as basic facts about the specific object, the category of object, the NASA missions used, and the contributions to advancing knowledge of the universe enabled by the NASA observations. The materials expand on the theme of demonstrating how far understanding and knowledge have come since Galileo?s telescope 400 years ago with illustrations of specific NASA contributions, and provide background information on which informal educators can draw for NASA-related activities in their programming.
