1 Dollar American Innovation Series, Hubble Space Telescope Orbiting Earth. (Maryland). 2020 year.
The eighth American Innovative 1 Dollar coin in this series, representing Maryland, the Hubble Space Telescope in Earth orbit.
$ 1 is dedicated to the Hubble Space Telescope, which was launched into orbit in 1990.
Designed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and launched in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope is one of the largest and most versatile space telescopes. It is also the first to be served in space by astronauts. Teams from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and the Space Telescope Science Institute — both based in Maryland — fly the telescope.
Situated above the distortion of the earth's atmosphere, Hubble has an unobstructed view of the universe. Its four main instruments are observed in the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
The data transmitted by Hubble helped to clarify the age of the universe, trace the growth of galaxies, identify planets outside our solar system, study planets within our solar system, identify black holes, observe the birth and death of stars, and many other scientific discoveries.
Obverse: In the center there is depicted, in profile, the Statue of Liberty, to the left of which is the official US motto "We believe in God" ("IN GOD WE TRUST"), to the right - the face value of the coin "$ 1" ("$ 1"). At the bottom of the obverse are the designers' initials "JK" and "PH".
Reverse: depicts a telescope orbiting the Earth surrounded by a star field.
Edge: Smooth with an inscription (* In God We Trust * E Pluribus Unum * year of minting and mint stamp).
