Why go through all the trouble and expense of buying and learning to use your own imaging equipment when you have access to ACTUAL Space Telescope data?

If you've ever wanted to take a picture like the Hubble Space Telescope does of the Orion Nebula or capture Jupiter through the camera as well as the Juno spacecraft, then this hangout is for you.

You can actually use data from these missions yourself. The data taken with all space telescopes eventually end up in the public archives that you can download and process yourself. In this hangout we'll discuss some of the ways of getting and processing this data for your own use.

We'll also take some time to talk about what its like to have job processing data from these major missions and some of the requirements of that job.
