What’s the deal with the Hubble Telescope?

Hubble Telescope

Have you ever wondered what the Hubble Space Telescope is? Where is it?  Who put it there?  What does it do and why? Well, have I got a web site for you.  

Click on this link to  HubbleSite  

This site will answer all your questions about the Hubble Space Telescope.  It has fantastic mulitmedia presentations, a photo gallery, a news centre, information about astronomy and the telescope.  There is also some really interesting information about the discoveries the telescope has made, like new red spots on Jupiter, amazing!!!. My favourite is the gallery of galactic collisions.

Take a look.  It’s really out of this world! 🙂

 

 

Mother Fish

Western Australia has some of the worlds oldest rocks, as well as some of the worlds oldest fossils. Now it is home to the worlds oldest mother.  Palaeontologists in Western Australia recently found a fossil fish complete with an unborn embryo. The fossil is the oldest example of internal fertilisation, aged 375 million years. Astonishingly, this fossil depicts not just the mother and a juvenile fish, but an umbilical cord as well.

 

The fossil fish has been named Materpiscis attenboroughi, meaning mother-fish Attenborough, after Sir David Attenborough.

 

For more information and a look at a sensational video of this amazing fish, follow this link to the Museum Victoria Website.
