Children Ages 10+ • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2004

Paul Kupperberg introduces upper elementary students to the life, times, and discoveries of Edwin Hubble, a premier American astronomer, for whom the Hubble Telescope was named. Jay Snyder presents the material in a clear professorial voice that will engage young students interested in the mysteries of the universe. Although the concepts are complex, Snyder’s careful, concise delivery helps the listener stay engaged. Hubble's life is placed in the context of the history of cosmology, an approach that shows how his studies and discoveries tested and verified theories scientists had studied for hundreds of years. A subtle musical tone alerts the listener to printed notes that clarify or expand on scientific milestones, and a time line places Hubble on the continuum of general scientific progress.
