“The Hubble Space Telescope: What Went Wrong, How We Fixed It, and Its great Discoveries”
The Hubble Space Telescope, launched in 1990, was not an immediate success. In 1993, Professor Jeffrey A. Hoffman was one of the NASA astronauts who carried out repair work on the telescope in a number of space walks ( STS-61 mission). On 26 June 2018 Prof. Hoffman will speak to alumni, staff and students of TU Delft and the University of Leiden as well as to the general public about his mission and his work as the ‘Hubble Repair Man.’
With an introduction from Henri Werij, Dean of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, TU Delft.
