Synopsis

The Hubble Space Telescope is a space telescope that was launched into low Earth orbit in 1990 and remains in operation. Although not the first space telescope, Hubble is one of the largest and most versatile, and is well known as both a vital research tool and a public relations boon for astronomy. The Hubble Space Telescope is named after the astronomer Edwin Hubble, and is one of NASA's Great Observatories, along with the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, the Chandra X-ray Observatory, and the Spitzer Space Telescope.

Inspired by the Hubble Space Telescope and astronomer Edwin Hubble, the HubblePhone is the latest creation from Turing Space Industries (formerly Turing Robotic Industries). HubblePhone is an ambitious project aimed at having a significant impact on human civilization in much the same way the Hubble Space Telescope has achieved. HubblePhone has a built-in 15x optical zoom camera capable of taking photos beyond what modern day smartphones can do.
