Big Telescope Gives Best-Ever 3D View Of Deep Space

Along with Earthrise and the Pillars of Creation, the Hubble Deep Field (HDF) photo of 1995 is one of astronomy's most iconic photos. But if you were wowed by the Hubble Deep Field--and the similar Hubble Deep Field South (HDFS) image of 1998--you should know that a telescope in northern Chile has outdone Hubble. Show More Summary

Gaze In Amazement At This Image Depicting Thousands Of Galaxies

yesterdayGenres / Sci Fi : io9

The Coma Cluster of Galaxies is composed of thousands of galaxies (and billions of stars), just a fraction of which can be seen in this image. It was created in 2006 by the Hubble Space Telescope as part of an initiative to learn how galaxies in rich clusters form and evolve. Read more...

Start Your Weekend With The Hubble Space Telescope's Planetarium Clips

3 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

You may not own your own private planetarium — or if you do, can we come over to your house? But you can still experience a journey through the wonders of space, thanks to four new "fulldome" planetarium clips, released by the Hubble Space Telescope. They're available in 4K and 8K resolution. Read more...

There May Be a Huge Number of Unobserved Dwarf Spiral Galaxies --"Could Have Profound Consequences" (Today's Most Popular)

“Finding objects like Kks3 is painstaking work, even with observatories like the Hubble Space Telescope," said Dimitry Makarov, of the Special Astrophysical Observatory. "But with persistence, we’re slowly building up a map of our local neighborhood, which turns out to...

Our Best View Of A Stellar Debris Disk Warped By A Massive Exoplanet

last weekGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Astronomers working with the Hubble Space Telescope have released the most detailed picture ever taken of a circumstellar debris disk viewed edge-on. It's the only picture we have of a protoplanetary disk with an actual planet orbiting within it. Read more...

Hubble gets best view of a circumstellar debris disk distorted by a planet

Astronomers have used the Hubble Space Telescope to take the most detailed picture to date of a large, edge-on, gas-and-dust disk encircling the 20-million-year-old star Beta Pictoris. The new image traces the disk in closer to the star to within about 650 million miles of the star.

Galaxy merger caught by Hubble telescope

A spiral galaxy gets twisted out of shape after coming too close to a cosmic neighbor in a gorgeous photo captured by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. The spiral galaxy, known as NGC 7714, lies about 100 million light-years from Earth....Show More Summary

Marvel At The Sparkling, Spiraling Majesty Of The M100 Galaxy

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Messier 100, or M100, is a grand design spiral galaxy that contains over 100 billion stars. This Hubble Space Telescope image was made in 2009, but there's even more history here; l ook carefully for the "small spot that is a light echo from a bright supernova that was recorded years before the image was taken."

Hubble captures rare image of triple Jupiter transit

2 weeks agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a rare image of a triple transit, as three of Jupiter's largest moons cast their shadows on the gas giant's planetary disk. The three moons captured in the image – Europa, Callisto and Io, were...Show More Summary

Hubble Telescope Captures Space Smiley

There’s a saying that goes “Smile, and the world will smile back”. In this case it was the universe that smiled back, as the Hubble Space Telescope photographed deep space galaxies. The smiley in the photo appeared thanks to a cosmic lens which was created due to warped spacetime (English explanation below). Photographed at least [...]Show More Summary

A Smile From Space

Photo captured by NASA/EPA's Hubble Telescope “The Old Astronomer,” a poem written by Sarah Williams, once captured humanity's fascination with the universe: “I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.” NASA/ESA’sShow More Summary

A smiling lens: 'Happy face' galaxy cluster reveals arcs caused by strong gravitational lensing

An image taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows what appears to be a smiling galaxy cluster SDSS J1038+4849. In the case of this "happy face," the two eyes are very bright galaxies and the misleading smile lines are actually arcs caused by an effect known as strong gravitational lensing.

NASA telescope captures smiley face in space

A delightful image taken by NASA’s Hubble Telescope shows a part of space appear to form a smiling face for the camera.

The Hubble found a smiley face in space to make us love science again.

When you're smiling, the whole universe smiles with you. God just sent us an emoji. (via NASA) The Hubble Space Telescope spotted this image of a friendly little guy they call the SDSS J1038+4849 galaxy cluster. If I were going to name him, I'd go with "Buddy," but to each his own.

The Hubble Space Telescope Captures a Smiley Face Galaxy Cluster Thanks to Strong Gravitational Lensing

3 weeks agoHumor : Laughing Squid

The Hubble Space Telescope has captured what appears to be a smiling galaxy cluster thanks to an effect known as strong gravitational lensing. The effect is caused by the intense gravitational force of the galaxy cluster at the center of the image bending light and space time around it, creating what is known as an […]

The Hubble Spots 'Smiley Face' in Space

The universe is smiling down on us—almost literally. The Hubble Telescope has captured a "smiley face" in space: two bright yellow eyes (a cluster of galaxies called SDSS J1038+4849), a white nose, and a faint smile and incomplete circle around the entire face. But those curving lines "don't exist—...

Hubble Space Telescope Spots Smiley Face In Universe – Alien Contact?

Many wonder if there really is life out there. Life out in space other than the human existence here on Earth, and it’s often a huge topic of discussion as to whether or not there are aliens out there trying to reach us. Through theShow More Summary
