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.

This is the Sombraro Galaxie also called M104 in Messier’s catalog at a distance of 28 millions light years. This is considered one of the best pictures Hubble took.

Slide 8

Then we have the Ant’s Nebula so called because of its shape and located 3000 and 6000 light years.

Slide 9

Then here is the Esquimo Nebula at 5000 light years.

Slide 10

In fourth place the Cat’s Eye Nebula.

Slide 11

Fifth place the Hour Glass Nebula located 8000 light years the result of an exploding star.

Slide 12

In 6th place, we have a part of the Cone Nebula at 2,5 light years

Slide 13

In Seventh position, we find a protion of the Swan Nebula located 5,500 light years described as an ocean of hydrogen with small quantities of oxygen, sulfur and other elements.

Slide 14

In 8th place, this beautiful image called “Starry night” And also know as Light Echo.

Slide 15

In 9th place, two galaxies merging NGC 2207 and IC 2163 located 114 millions light years.

Slide 16

Tenth place, a fragment of the Trifid Nebula with many stars at 9000 light years.

Words are escaping us when you discover these monumental pictures of colors and light. The Eagle Nebula or M16 can be found in the Serpent contallation, and it’s like an open window at the centre of a starry night. At the centre, many young stars forming creating a wonderful spectacle of gaseous emissions.

SHOWING ALL OF THIS IN THIS FASHION IS REALLY FACINATING, DEEPLY MOVING AND DAZZLING.

Wonderful Blue Planet!

Slide 67

A.z. Appreciate your home for one moment! Our children’s heritage!

Slide 68

Now you will see a picture for those moments when you feel life is overwhelming. When you think your problems are enormous… …and when you think there is a immense difference between the things you do and those you don’t,

Slide 69

It’s also a picture when you have moments as a human being you think you are powerful and magnificent… You are Homo Sapiens, Master of the creation, At the zenith of your technological power ! And you feel that with the other six billions persons we are … … So far we are unique in this universe.

Slide 70

And finally… …a picture for those moments when you think the world is so big where you live that it is indestructible. With its great cities, all the oceans, mountain ranges and continents… Invulnerable Planet… …insensitive, with its size and greatness, With our actions as men accomplishing… or not. Insensitive

Slide 71

Because, Earth has five hundred millions square kilometres of surface! Six thousands quadrillions tons of rocks!... And more then one thousand trillions tons of water!…

Slide 72

Héla aquí, pues: Contemplate this picture for a few moments. It was taken by the Cassini-Juygens probe, in 2004, when it arrived at the rings of Saturn.

Slide 73

We are all in this little blue point. All our wars… All our problems... All our greatness and misery…. All our technology, our art, our advances… All our civilizations, all our wildlife and flora... All races, religions… All governments, countries and states... All our love… and hate… Six billions souls in constant agitation…

Slide 74

If we want, we can take this picture like a lesson in humility… And like a double message: On one hand , how little we are in this universe, with our problems and our differences, when we see them on this scale... But on the other side, how fragile is our planet, And the importance of taking care of this little blue point, …because its the only home we have. It does make you think, no?

Slide 75

Think about it... Is beautiful! World Our
