Basketball in Space
In May during the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) servicing mission, John Grunsfeld, SM'84 PhD'88, paid homage to fellow UC alumnus Edwin Hubble, after whom the telescope was named. Hubble, an astronomer whose seminal contributions to the field greatly expanded our understanding of the Universe, also played forward on the Maroons' Big Ten champion basketball teams of 1907-08 and 1908-09.
