      In this galactic lecture, Bethany Cobb brings to life the story of the fascinating astronomy pioneer Edwin Hubble. She explains the significance surrounding his use of a 100-inch telescope at the Mount Wilson Observatory in California. Cobb describes Hubble’s resolution of the “Great Debate” over the scale of the universe 300 years after Galilieo’s great discoveries.

      She also covers how he also produced extensive proof that the universe is expanding. This ten minute lecture will captivate its viewers as it takes an in-depth look inside the astronomical work of Hubble. The lecture was presented as part of the International Year of Astronomy honouring the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s use of the telescope.

      Dr. Bethany Cobb is dedicated to sharing her love of astronomy with others. As a National Science Foundation Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral at UC Berkeley, she has an astronomical amount of information to share with the public. Dr. Cobb obtained her PhD from Yale University for her extensive research on massive stellar explosions referred to as gamma-ray bursts. As well, she is the astronomer for The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

      Celebrate Hubble’s outstanding work with this informative lecture organized by the Humanities Member-Led Forum at the Commonwealth Club.

    • (just a) FROG on the LOG

      Why am I not able to get the full program to come up? I click the button, but it only gives me the 10 min preview again. I’ve allowed pop-ups and still nothing. Is it working for everyone else?

    • Tiago C.

      You have to click the “Watch full program” button but yea I can see the full video after that.

    • (just a) FROG on the LOG

      Yup, I’ve tried it again, but the button just gives me the preview once more. Oh well! Thanks for your help anyway Tiago.

      I’ve liked nearly all of the documentaries that I’ve seen your name attached to, so may I say for myself – thanks for all your great suggestions! Surprisingly, I’ve liked most of the lecture videos on the site too. I don’t know why I can’t get this one to play for me. Some day I’ll search out that google source mentioned above.

      Thanks again for finding interesting videos for all of us!

      How do some of these docs get such a low rating? I found this to be interesting, insightful, and entertaining.

    • Wayne

      I thought it was great. I wish there were more lectures to watch. They are packed with information without having to endure long periods of shots and music (I’m speculating here) for dramatic effect.
