I will be
describing Lyman Spitzer. Lyman Spitzer is known for
his work in theoretical astrophysics. He created the approach of placing
telescopes in space, which allowed for the production of the Hubble Space Telescope.
He believed that placing a telescope in space would allow for the detection of
other light waves. The Hubble Space Telescope has allowed for many influential
and important discoveries in the field of astronomy to occur. It conceived a greater
comprehension of the universe, in addition to a better understanding of the
galaxies and how they behave. I think that Lyman Spitzer is important as he allowed
for scientists to have the opportunity to study the universe in greater detail.
He therefore allowed for many extraordinary discoveries to be made in the field
of astronomy, as well as much more to be made in the future. Some of these
discoveries involve a better understanding of the life cycle of galaxies and a
more accurate prediction regarding the age of the universe.
