NASA to join 24-hour telescope Webcast
The U.S. space agency says it will take part in
Around the World in 80 Telescopes -- a 24-hour Webcast that's part of the International Year of Astronomy.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said the live Webcast, which begins Friday, will offer viewers a visit to some of the most advanced telescopes on and off the planet, including never-before-seen images.
The event is produced by the European Southern Observatory, from its headquarters in Garching, Germany.
