THROUGH THE EYES OF HUBBLE WITH MICHELLE NICHOLS (Schaumburg Library)
The Hubble Space Telescope has had more impact on astronomy and the public’s awareness of astronomy than any other telescope in history.

She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National-Louis University.
