Do you have problems?

Thinking outside the box and putting things in perspective might help

Here’s a little astronomy to help you put this into perspective


Hubble


The Hubble telescope is located outside our atmosphere and is orbiting around the Earth at 593 km above sea level with an orbital period of about 96 to 97 minutes at a speed of 28,000 km/h.

Its name is in honor of astronomer Edwin Hubble, it was placed in orbit on April 24, 1990. It weighs about 11000 kg in a cylindrical form with a 13,2 m length and a diameter of 4,2 m. This telescope can obtain images of the cosmos at an 0,1 arc second of resolution.

In Seventh position, wefind a portionof theSwanNebula, located 5,500 light years and described as anocean of hydrogenwithsmallquantities of oxygen, sulphurand otherelements.
