Hubble Space Telescope Exhibit

I set the start time for 11:30, but the exhibit itself does not open until noon. We can meet at Starbucks and mingle for a bit before the exhibit opens.

The Exhibit

How did the universe begin? How big is it? What is it made of? What is its ultimate fate? These are some of the questions that scientists have been investigating with the Hubble Space Telescope since its launch in 1990. Not only is Hubble providing us with an unprecedented amount of information about the universe, its breathtaking images—disseminated in the press and over the Internet—have excited more people around the world than any other images in the last decade.

This exciting exhibit makes it possible to see and understand the extraordinary discoveries made by the Hubble Space Telescope. A model Hubble telescope will be on view along with hands-on activities about how the telescope works.

The exhibit also includes several games, infrared light technology and spectacular backlit color images of planets, galaxies, black holes, and many other fascinating cosmic entities captured by Hubble.

Washington County Museum will be open Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free to members, $6 for adults and $4 for children. Children age 3 and under are free.

There are several restarants in the area for a possible lunch afterward, but that is not part of the planned event.

    Dave, thanks for setting up this Meetup. Really fascinating stuff! I'd wanted to check out this exhibit and forgot about it; you got me to make the drive out to Hillsboro, and it was worth it!

    Remember folks, Max runs real close to here, so instead of hunting for parking, enjoy a train ride. :)
