Journey to Palomar Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Wed, Dec 17, 2008 -- 10:00 PM

This program traces the story of astronomer George Ellery Hale, considered the father of astrophysics, as he struggles personally and professionally to build the greatest telescopes of the 20th century at the Yerkes and Mount Wilson Observatories, and finally the 20-year effort to build the million-pound telescope on Palomar Mountain, considered the "Moon shot" of the 1930s and '40s. Hale's observatories revolutionized our understanding of the universe, making headlines throughout the 20th century with revelations such as Edwin Hubble's 1929 discovery of the expansion of the universe.
