Hubble has been a boon to deep space exploration, gifting us iconic pictures of the skies and revealing new insights into the history of the early universe. For the next big step in space astronomy, NASA, ESA and the Canadian Space Agency...Show More Summary
I do love an edge-on spiral galaxy. They look so odd! That image above is from the Hubble Space Telescope and shows NGC 7814, a galaxy about 40 million light-years away. That makes it relatively close as galaxies go! It’s a bit like looking at a house in the next town over. Show More Summary
Take equal parts 1) supernova, 2) Hubble Space Telescope, and 3) Herschel infrared Observatory. Mix well. What do you get? Purple (and pink) majesty. This video is based on an article I wrote about this observation. And yeah, you want...Show More Summary
Over the past 25 years, the Space Telescope has captured our most spectacular images of the universe. If you see a spectacular image of a galaxy far, far away, chances are it comes from one telescope. Since 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope...Show More Summary
Video: Most of the gorgeous images of distant galaxies we all keep in our minds were captured by the lens of The Hubble Space Telescope. But those lens can only take black and white images. The colour is added afterwards according to “the wavelengths of light that different elements emit in space”. This is how they do it. More »
Astronomers have created a new master catalog of astronomical objects called the Hubble Source Catalog. The catalog provides one-stop shopping for measurements of objects observed with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
An ultraviolet light show has provided space scientists with the best evidence yet that the Jovian moon Ganymede has a gigantic ocean beneath its icy surface. Images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope of the aurorae in the moon's...Show More Summary
By studying the subtle shifts of aurorae on Ganymede, scientists working with the Hubble Space Telescope have concluded that the large Jovian moon hosts a massive subterranean ocean. Quite suddenly, the outer reaches of our solar system appears to be a very wet place, indeed. Read more...
Our solar system's largest moon may be harboring a deep secret -- a subterranean saltwater ocean. That's right. NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has spotted signs of a vast ocean lurking beneath the surface of Jupiter's moon Ganymede. How...Show More Summary
From NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center – NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has the best evidence yet for an underground saltwater ocean on Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon. The subterranean ocean is thought to have more water than all the water on Earth’s surface. Identifying liquid water is crucial in the search for habitable worlds beyond Earth and…
By Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., (Reuters) - Scientists using the Hubble Space Telescope have confirmed that the Jupiter-orbiting moon Ganymede has an ocean beneath its icy surface, raising the prospects for life, NASA said on Thursday. Show More Summary
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope confirmed there is a deep saltwater ocean below the crust of the solar system's largest moon

Photographer Navid Baraty doesn’t need the Hubble Space Telescope to roam the Universe capturing amazing pictures. He just needs a scanner, glasses, cream, salt or anything he can find in his kitchen to obtain these cool images of invented galaxies and planets. More »
Only a small portion of the Veil Nebula — located in the constellation Cygnus — is only partly visible to the Hubble Telescope. But what can be photographed is fairly impressive. Read more...
The Hubble Space Telescope has captured an image of the same supernova in four different locations thanks to a phenomenon known as gravitational lensing. Light from the exploding star is being bent by the gravity of a massive galaxy cluster, allowing the Hubble to see behind it. The image was processed by a team that […]
From discovering pulsars to correcting the optics of the fuzzy Hubble Space Telescope, here are 17 stories of women who made undeniably vital contributions to astronomy and physics. Read more...
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have spotted for the first time a distant supernova split into four images. The multiple images of the exploding star are caused by the powerful gravity of a foreground elliptical galaxy embedded in a massive cluster of galaxies. Show More Summary
Dennis Overbye, writing for the NYT: It’s “Groundhog Day” in the cosmos. In the 1993 Bill Murray movie, a weatherman finds himself reliving he same day over and over again. Now astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope say they have...Show More Summary
Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have, for the first time, spotted four images of a distant exploding star. The images are arranged in a cross-shaped pattern by the powerful gravity of a foreground galaxy embedded in a massive...
