Description

REACHing Out are bi-weekly mini-episodes where we answer YOUR Questions. This week we're addressing numerous questions that have come in about the purpose of space telescopes by sharing a recent discovery.  One for the record books! NASA just announced an exciting new finding from the Hubble Space Telescope – the farthest star ever seen in the universe. Nicknamed “Earendel” by its discoverers, this star's light took a whopping 12.9 billion years to reach us. Here to answer our questions is Dr. Michelle L Thaller, Assistant Director of Science at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
