Visions of the Universe

By Phyllis Frenzel

Hickam Base Library was privileged to have been one of 40 libraries nationwide selected to host the travelling astronomy exhibit, "Visions of the Universe, Four Centuries of Discovery," from July 2 through Sept. 5. The display was sponsored by the American Library Association Public Programs Office, the Space Science Telescope Institute, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and NASA, and marks the International Year of Astronomy in 2009. It features photos taken by Hubble and highlights the development of technology and space exploration since Galileo’s time.
