How does the hubble telesccope function?
The main reason that the Hubble telescope was built was to get pictures from outer space. The Hubble telescope was also built to help figure out how different planets function and if the telescope managers takes pictures of the sun or moon we can also find how natural disasters happen and how to help with the impacts on earth.
No, Edwin Hubble had nothing directly to do with the Hubble Telescope, it was named for him because he profoundly changed the understanding of the nature of the universe. Hubble died before the the physical exploration of space began. Hubble also created his own Hubble telescope back in 1929 but it is not the orbiting Hubble telescope.
