    Up-close and personal with space

    The UA has proven itself time and time again to be a trailblazer in the collaboration of before-unrelated fields. The Kachina Gallery unveils the latest example of this integration today in “”Hubble Space Telescope: Vistas from the Pale Blue Dot.”” The show includes high-definition images from the Hubble telescope, presented as never seen before in a large format for viewers to experience. While many students are aware of the hype surrounding the UA’s involvement in the Hubble project, few have seen the results of this monumental development in technology up-close and personal. The astronomers-turned-artists involved in the project have created something truly out of this world. Gallery curator Aron Talenfeld attests that the opening reception, which includes a lecture from distinguished UA professor Christopher Impey, is Kachina’s biggest event this year.

    “”Hubble Space Telescope: Vistas From a Pale Blue Dot””
    Opening Reception today at 7 p.m.
    Kachina Gallery, Student Union Memorial Center
    Free admission, on display through Dec. 3
