    Great Observatories of NASA

  13. telescopes in space

  14. Ajay Parasuraman

    Constants named after them ? Chandrasekhar Limit etc

  15. they all have craters in moon named after them

  16. NASA Great Observatories named after them.

    In order – Spitzer, Compton, Hubble and Chandrashekar.

  17. Nishanth Raman

    NASA’s series of Great Observatories satellites are four large, powerful space-based telescopes. They are named after the four astro-physicist’s shown in the question.

    Hubble Space Telescope, named after Edwin Hubble.
    Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, named after Arthur Holly Compton.
    Chandra X-ray Observatory, named after Subramanya Chandrashakar.
    Spitzer Space Telescope, named after Lyman Spitzer, Jr.

  18. A for Anonymous

    Second pic is Arthur Hally Compton who was buried in a place called Wooster….. Third is PGW whose(of course) famous character is Wooster… first and fourth don’t know..

  19. Wooster is the connect ??

  20. Telescopes..Compton, Hubble, Chandra etc..
