RIT Director of Imaging Science to Attend House Hearing on Future of Hubble Telescope
The Science Committee is holding hearings on “Options for Hubble Science” as a prelude to budget debates. The NASA budget proposed for this year does not include money to service the Hubble Space Telescope.
Baum sits on the executive committee of the Hubble Origin Probe, which will present an alternative for continuing and enhancing the Hubble Science mission with a new free-flyer telescope.
Prior to joining RIT in July 2004, Baum worked for 13 years as an astronomer and served as Engineering Division Head for three years at the Space Telescope Institute, the science operations center for the Hubble Space Telescope and the next generation space telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).
