Hubble Space Telescope (HST)
durbin-e fazâyi-ye Hubble, teleskop-e ~ ~ (#)
Fr.: télescope spatial de Hubble
A telescope of 2.4 m in diameter, a joint NASA and ESA project, launched in 1990 into a low-Earth orbit 600 km above the ground. It was equipped with a collection of several science instruments that worked across the entire optical spectrum (from infrared, through the visible, to ultraviolet light). During its lifetime Hubble has become one of the most important science projects ever.
