Launched on 24th April 1990, The Hubble Space Telescope has revolutionised our understanding of the universe. It has, among many other achievements, revealed thousands of galaxies in what seemed to be empty patches of sky; transformed our knowledge of black holes; found dwarf planets with moons orbiting other stars; and measured precisely how fast the universe is expanding.

Drawing from her book, Handprints on Hubble, retired astronaut Kathryn Sullivan will talk about her work on the NASA team that made all of this possible. Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space, will recount how she and other astronauts, engineers, and scientists launched, rescued, repaired, and maintained Hubble, the most productive observatory ever built.

Kathy Sullivan is an American geologist and a former NASA astronaut. A crew member on three Space Shuttle missions, she was the first American woman to walk in space on October 11 1984. Her first spaceflight was aboard the space shuttle Challenger on the STS-41G mission, when Sullivan and mission specialist David Leetsma performed a 3.5-hour space walk in which they operated a system designed to show that satellites could be refueled in orbit. On May 4 2011, Sullivan was appointed by President Obama to serve as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Environmental Observation and Prediction and Deputy Administrator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
