Galaxies have been known to take numerous forms. Indeed, elliptical blobs, swirling spiral arms, bulges, and disks are all known components of the wide range of galaxies astronomers have observed using telescopes like NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. read more
Strangely glowing dark clouds float serenely in this remarkable and beautiful image taken with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. These dense, opaque dust clouds - known as "globules" - are silhouetted against nearby bright stars in the busy star-forming region, IC...
NASA astronomers involved in the mission of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) say the successor to the Hubble and Spitzer telescopes will likely enable mankind to finally answer the existential question "Are we alone?" within this generation. Show More Summary
The world's most powerful telescope which can produce images ten times sharper than Nasa's Hubble is to become operational in Chile's Atacama desert.The Alma telescope, which promises to probe deeper into space than ever before, comprises...Show More Summary

"We have found that this is the oldest known star with a well-determined age," said Howard Bond of Pennsylvania State University in University Park, Pa., and the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Md. The star could be as old...
A team of astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has taken an important step closer to finding the "birth certificate" of an ancient star. read more
A team of astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has taken an important step closer to finding the birth certificate of a star that's been around for a very long time. "We have found that this is the oldest known star with a...Show More Summary
Personally, I think it looks more like Black Manta's helmet than a Space Invader, but this image of a spiral galaxy taken with the Hubble Space Telescope sure looks like something other than a spiral galaxy. That's because the light from the "Space Invader" galaxy is being bent around a galaxy cluster called Abell 68. Show More Summary
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope is one of the most powerful available to astronomers, but sometimes it too needs a helping hand. This comes in the form of Einstein’s general theory of relativity, which makes galaxy clusters act as natural...
Hubble spies with its little eye, something that starts with "S." (Credit: ESA, and the Hubble Heritage/ESA-Hubble Collaboration, NASA) Space Invaders attack! (Click to enlarge.)

NASA has just released a photo captured by its Hubble Space Telescope that reveals a deep cosmic entity that looks suspiciously like a Space Invader. Not an alien race bent on human destruction, but a cluster of galaxies — dubbed Abel 68 — that bears a striking resemblance to the pixelated extraterrestrials of the classic 1970s arcade game. More »
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope is one of the most powerful available to astronomers, but sometimes it too needs a helping hand. This comes in the form of Einstein's general theory of relativity, which makes galaxy clusters act as natural lenses, amplifying the light coming from very distant galaxies.
NASA's Hubble Telescope peered deep into a cluster of galaxies called Abell 68 recently, and found a wicked space invader that looks like it's headed right for us. Brace for impact! More »
Abell 68, pictured here in infrared light, is one of these galaxy clusters, and it greatly boosts the power of Hubble, extending the telescope's ability to observe distant and faint objects . The fuzzy collection of blobs in the middle and upper left of the image is a swarm of galaxies, each with hundreds of billions of stars and vast amounts of dark matter. read more

Hubble is a telescope that orbits above Earth's atmosphere, beaming home images that have helped us solve some of the universe's greatest mysteries. Here's how it works. More About: astronomy, ESA, Hubble, NASA, Science, space, What's Inside
It may look like something from "The Lord of the Rings," trilogy (think the Eye of Sauron), but this fiery swirl is actually a real-life planetary nebula known as ESO 456-67 imaged by NASA's Hubble space telescope. read more
A new image from the Hubble Space Telescope may look like something from "The Lord of the Rings," but this fiery swirl is actually a planetary nebula known as ESO 456-67. Set against a backdrop of bright stars, the rust-colored object lies in the constellation of Sagittarius (The Archer), in the southern sky.
The Hubble Space Telescope has captured a new image showing an object known as HH 151, a bright jet of glowing material trailed by an intricate, orange-hued plume of gas and dust.
