The development for the second telescope for the outer space is underway and is aiming to be launched in 2018. NASA has extended the Hubble Space Telescope contract for another five years.
Sometimes you just need to look at pretty stars. That image was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope back in 2009 (but just released recently), using the Advanced Camera for Surveys. It shows a region of the sky very near the center of...Show More Summary
If Neptune seems a bit blemished of late, it's because NASA has confirmed that a dark spot has shown up in its bluish atmosphere. Observations by the Hubble Space Telescope taken in May show that a dark vortex has appeared in the southern hemisphere. Show More Summary
Extra funds for the world’s most famous observatory mean it will be able to work in tandem with its upcoming successor, the James Webb Space Telescope
New images obtained on May 16, 2016, by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope confirm the presence of a dark vortex in the atmosphere of Neptune. Though similar features were seen during the Voyager 2 flyby of Neptune in 1989 and by the Hubble...Show More Summary
New images confirm the presence of a dark vortex on Neptune. Though similar features were seen during the Voyager 2 flyby of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope in 1989 and by Hubble in 1994, this vortex is the first one observed on Neptune in the 21st century.
A spacecraft systems engineer's very first shot at cosplay is a winner as he rocks a DIY full-body Hubble costume at Denver Comic Con.
A research team has used the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph on the Hubble Space Telescope to study key regions of the ultraviolet spectrum of a star thought to have been enriched by elements from one of the first generation of stars.
Ten-year-olds Oliver Blaise and Leonard Gu aren’t really sure what they want to be when they grow up. “I might want to be a scientist,” Gu said as he held up a spacecraft made of Legos that he and Blaise designed. The two boys created...Show More Summary
As the Voyager spacecraft and Hubble telescope make new discoveries about deep space on a daily basis, it seems we’re still learning things about our own cosmic backyard.
Twenty years from now, bulletproof vests could be three times stronger. The Hubble Telescope could scour space for dangerous debris. We could have devices that scan our body for tiny ticks, bionic eyes that help blind people see, and...Show More Summary
Sometimes you just need a pretty picture of star field, right? But sometimes it’s fun to find out a little bit more, too, and I’m happy to help! That image above is NGC 6496, a globular cluster as seen by the Hubble Space Telescope. Globulars are roughly spherical collections of hundreds of thousands of stars, bound together by their mutual gravity. Show More Summary
Back in the 90s, John Hetlinger helped fix the Hubble Space Telescope…but now, aged 82, the highlight of all his various careers as fighter pilot, engineer and more, is, apparently, to sing for Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent. And, what a song choice! Drowning Pool’s “Bodies”. Show More Summary
It takes a lot to shock the America's Got Talent judges, but that's just what 82-year-old John Hetlinger did. The retired aerospace engineer (he helped repair the Hubble Space Telescope!)...
Metalheads, rejoice: an octogenarian star is melting faces on America's Got Talent. John Hetlinger, an 82-year-old retired aerospace engineer who worked on the Hubble Space Telescope, wowed judges on this week's episode with his highly...Show More Summary
China revealed plans to build space telescope to rival NASA’s Hubble which will have a field of view 300 times larger than its US counterpart. The telescope will dock with China's Tiangong-3 modular space station.
New measurements carried out using the Hubble Space Telescope suggest that the Universe may be expanding up to 9 percent faster than previously believed. The team behind the study, which is the most accurate of its kind ever undertaken,...Show More Summary
Chinese authorities revealed a plan to launch an independent orbital observatory that will outperform NASA’s aging Hubble space telescope.
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have discovered that the universe is expanding 5 percent to 9 percent faster than expected. "This surprising finding may be an important clue to understanding those mysterious parts ofShow More Summary
New calculations in the cosmos have revealed a surprise: The universe appears to be expanding faster than anyone thought. Using the Hubble Space Telescope, scientists measured the distance to stars in 19 galaxies and concluded that the universe is growing 5% to 9% quicker than expected, the researchers say in...
