Slide 1: 

A Little Astronomy

Slide 2: 


Slide 3: 

The Hubble Space Telescope is a robotic telescope located on the outer edge of the atmosphere, in circular orbit around the Earth at 593 km above sea level, with an orbital period between 96 and 97 minutes at a speed 28,000 km / h. Named as a tribute to Edwin Hubble, was launched into orbit on 24 April 1990 as a joint project of NASA and ESA, thus inaugurating the Great Observatories program. Cylindrically shaped Hubble weighs 11 tons. Its length is 13.2 m and its maximum diameter is 4.2 meters. The telescope can obtain images with higher optical resolution 0.1 seconds of arc.

In sixth place we see the Cone Nebula, 2.5 light-years

Slide 13: 

Seventh, we find a fragment of the Swan Nebula, located at 5500 light years away, described as "a bubbling ocean of hydrogen with small amounts of oxygen, sulfur and other elements"

Slide 14: 

Eighth, a beautiful picture called "Starry Night"

Slide 15: 

In ninth place, two swirling galaxies, the NGC 2207 and IC 2163 located 114 million light-years.

Slide 55: 

The words are useless when we are confronted with such monuments of light and color. We can meet with the Eagle Nebula or M16 in the constellation Serpens is a window in the middle of the starry night. On the inside, clusters of young stars are in the process of creation, creating a wonderful spectacle of gaseous emissions.
