On April 28, 1967, boxing champion Muhammad Ali refused to be inducted into the U.S. Army and was immediately stripped of his heavyweight title. Ali, a Muslim, cited religious reasons for his
decision to forgo military service.

Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., in Louisville, Kentucky, on
January 14, 1942, the future three-time world champ changed
his name to Muhammad Ali in 1964 after converting to
Islam.

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched into
low Earth orbit in
1990 and remains in operation. It was not the
first space telescope,
but it is one of the largest and most versatile, renowned both as a
vital research tool and as a public relations boon for
astronomy.

The Hubble telescope is named after astronomer Edwin Hubble
(below) and is one of NASA’s
Great Observatories.
