Hubble's successor, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), "represents the hopes and ambitions of the 10,000 astronomers who have already used the Hubble," said John Mather, Nobel laureate, astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, and the senior project scientist...
Astrophysicists have taken a major step forward in understanding how supermassive black holes formed. Using data from Hubble and two other space telescopes, Italian researchers have found the best evidence yet for the seeds that ultimately grow into these cosmic giants. read more
A new image taken by the Hubble space telescope shows Mars in incredible detail as astronomers prepare for a close-up with the red planet. Operated by NASA and the European Space Agency, Hubble took the Mars image on May 12. “DuringShow More Summary
Bright, frosty polar caps, and clouds above a vivid, rust-colored landscape reveal Mars as a dynamic seasonal planet in this NASA Hubble Space Telescope view taken on May 12, 2016, when Mars was 50 million miles from Earth. The Hubble image reveals details as small as 20 to 30 miles across. read more
Mars is quite the looker in a new image taken by Hubble, the space telescope that normally focuses on far-off nebulae and stars.
The Hubble Space Telescope has captured a stunning image of the full disk of Mars prior to the Red Planet's closest approach to Earth in 11 years. Mars has been the focal point of numerous unmanned missions, and, if NASA gets its way,...Show More Summary
The Hubble Space Telescope has captured an incredible close-up of the Red Planet, showing details as small as just 20 miles across.
During May 2016 the Earth and Mars get closer to each other than at any time in the last ten years. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has exploited this special configuration to catch a new image of our red neighbour,...
On May 12, 2016, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured this striking image of Mars, when the planet was 50 million miles from Earth. The photo reveals details as small as 20 miles to 30 miles across. This observation...Show More Summary
During May 2016 the Earth and Mars get closer to each other than at any time in the last ten years. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has exploited this special configuration to catch a new image of our red neighbour, showing some of its famous surface features. Show More Summary
Mars, in an image shot by the Hubble Space Telescope. (Photo: NASA/Public Domain) It won't be easy growing food on Mars. NASA is trying, of course, in case humans ever get there. But the conditions are tough. You've got little oxygen, constant sand storms, and subzero temperatures. There's also the problem of the soil. Show More Summary
This sequence of images taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope shows Comet 252P/LINEAR as it passed by Earth. The visit was one of the closest encounters between a comet and our planet. The images were taken on April 4, 2016, roughly two weeks after the icy visitor made its closest approach to Earth on March 21. Show More Summary
image credit NASA The Hubble Space Telescope has continuously unleashed a stream of jaw-dropping intergalactic imagery since it launched on April 24, 1990. These images allow researchers to study distant worlds, galaxies and nebulae.In...Show More Summary
Do you have 37 seconds of time to spare today? If so, you can zip towards the very center of our galaxy thanks to a new video put out by the Hubble Space Telescope team. The video is really just a long zoom into an image released last...Show More Summary
Few organizations are as inspirational to millions around the world as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. (NASA) From placing the first man on the moon, to the space shuttle program, the Hubble telescope and the Mars mission, reaching for the stars is a well-known mission of NASA. Show More Summary
Researchers working with the Hubble Space Telescope have discovered a moon in orbit around Makemake, a distant minor-planet that’s about two-thirds the size of Pluto. Read more...
The JWST, the scientific successor to NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, will be the most powerful space telescope ever built. Scientists from around the world will use this unique observatory to capture images and spectra of not only the first galaxies...
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope recently discovered a small moon orbiting an icy dwarf planet in the distant reaches of our solar system.
When it is launched in 2018, the James Webb Space Telescope will give astronomers a glimpse at the edge of space and the beginning of time.
The precious reward for centuries of astronomy has been spectacular images from the cosmos thanks to space telescopes like Hubble! We’re also being spoiled...
