STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING UNLEASHING NEW DISCOVERIES (A full of Structures Universe / begins with a Structure)
ON this day, We are Celebrating Structural Engineering with the Mt Wilson Telescope and the Astronomer Edwin Hubble, born in November 20, 1889! He found that the Milky Way was not alone but instead along more than a billion of other galaxies. Astronomers are using today modern telescopes to see further in the Universe. By advancing the performance of STRUCTURES (which is a good thing) and with the use of New Materials, mixing new technologies like Adaptive Optics (in the past), and other recent dev. we can further know more about our Journey of Humanity in this Universe.

*Edwin Powell Hubble was an American astronomer. He played a crucial role in establishing the fields of extragalactic astronomy and observational cosmology. Hubble proved that many objects previously thought to be clouds of dust and gas and classified as "nebulae" were actually galaxies beyond the Milky Way. Hubble provided evidence that the recessional velocity of a galaxy increases with its distance from the Earth, a property now known as "Hubble's law". The Hubble law implies that the universe is expanding. which is also a Structure!
*Structural Engineering is a sub-discipline of civil engineering in which structural engineers are trained to design the 'bones and muscles' that create the form and shape of man-made structures. Structural engineers also must understand and calculate the stability, strength, rigidity and earthquake-susceptibility of built structures for buildings and nonbuilding structures.
Hubble's name is most widely recognized for the , Hubble Space Telescope which was named in his honor, with a model prominently displayed in his hometown of Marshfield, Missouri. Marshfield < < < > > > NASA Hubble Space Telescope
