The Hawaiians came here in the first place because they were expert Astronomers. Instead of protesting the use of Mauna Kea for telescopes, the smart Hawaiians are jumping aboard and leading the world in furthering our understanding of the stars and our universe. The ancestors would be prouder of these smarter Hawaiians than those protesting.

Backyard stargazers get a monthly guide to the northern hemisphere's skywatching events with "Tonight's Sky."
In July, the Lagoon, Trifid and Omega nebulae are dazzling sights.

"Tonight's Sky" is produced by HubbleSite.org, online home of the Hubble Space Telescope. This is a recurring show,
and you can find more episodes — and other astronomy videos — at HubbleSite.org.

This episode of "Behind the Webb" explores the multi-tasking capabilities of one of the cameras on the Webb
Space Telescope, the Near-Infrared Spectrograph. Newly designed technology known as "microshutters" – tens
of thousands of tiny shutters that open and close to allow only the light from targeted objects to enter the
instrument -- enables scientists to study the spectrum of more than one galaxy at a time. As many as 100
objects can be simultaneously observed.

Because the Webb Telescope will be launched into space and operate in an extremely cold environment,
it needs to be built with materials that are both lightweight and stable. It needs to maintain its shape
despite a range of temperatures. One of the science instruments on the telescope, NIRSPEC, or Near
Infrared Spectrograph, is largely made from a ceramic known as silicon carbide. This episode of Behind
the Webb takes us on a journey from the origins of this special material to how it's incorporated into the
next great space observatory.

This 3-D visualization flies across a small portion of the Veil Nebula as photographed by the Hubble
Space Telescope. This region is a small part of a huge expanding remnant from a star that exploded
many thousands of years ago. Hubble resolves tangled rope-like filaments of glowing gases. They have
been shocked and heated by colliding with cooler, denser interstellar gas.

The 3-D model has been created for illustrative purposes and shows that the giant bubble of gas has a
thin, rippled surface. It also highlights that the emission from different chemical elements arises from
different layers of gas within the nebula. In the imagery, emission from Sulfur, Hydrogen, and Oxygen
are shown in red, green, and blue, respectively.

This segment of the Hubble at 25 series discusses how the Hubble Space Telescope has not only given
us a better understanding of our solar system, but it has also helped pave the way for interplanetary
missions to be successful. By monitoring target destinations, Hubble has enabled spacecraft mission
planners to optimize the science return from the planetary visits.
