WATCH Today's NASA TV 'Exoplanet' Press Conference 1 PM EST --"Will They Reveal Discovery of Another Earth-Like Planet in Alpha Centauri?"

There is an interesting paper with press conference participants Sara Seager and Michael Gillon among the authors in 2015 "Hubble Space Telescope search for the transit of the Earth-mass exoplanet Alpha Centauri Bb" that says results from exoplanet surveys indicate...        

Hubble spotlights a celestial sidekick

This image was captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), a highly efficient wide-field camera covering the optical and near-infrared parts of the spectrum. While this lovely image contains hundreds of distant stars and galaxies, one vital thing is missing—the object Hubble was actually studying at the time!

A New Spaceship Could Fly Astronauts to the Hubble Space Telescope for Repairs

The Trump administration is considering a proposal by Sierra Nevada to refurbish Hubble for the future.

Dream Chaser spacecraft may be used for Hubble repair mission

The final servicing mission to the venerable Hubble Space Telescope (HST) was in 2009. The shuttle Atlantis completed that mission (STS-125,) and several components were repaired and replaced, including the installation of improved batteries. Show More Summary

"Hubble's Heroic Future" --Trump White House Mulls Sending a Manned Spacecraft to Upgrade the Space Telescope (VIDEO)

President Trump’s advisers are considering an industry proposal to send a manned spacecraft to link up with NASA’s pioneering orbiting telescope — comparable to five earlier repair missions by the now-retired space shuttle fleet stretching back to 1993. The mission...        

Hubble Discovers Earliest Sources of Light in Universe

The Hubble telescope isn’t just for taking incredible photos of psychedelic space clouds – although it is pretty good at it. The Hubble space telescope has a variety of imaging technologies which allow it to ‘see’ various types of radiation, not just the wavelengths of light usually...

Hubble snaps stunning image of barred spiral galaxy NGC 7640

last weekNews : The Raw Story

A team of astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope has captured a stunning new image of the barred spiral galaxy NGC 7640. The shape of the galaxy, located over 19 million light-years from Earth in the Andromeda constellation, is similar to the Milky Way, but its diameter is just over half that...

How this astronaut overcame failure and rejection to land his dream job

Astronaut and "Spaceman" author Mike Massimino has made two trips to space, one of which was spent servicing the Hubble Space Telescope. He put his odds at achieving his dream career at.0000001. "Remember that things might be improbable, or really difficult, or unlikely. Show More Summary

Hubble witnesses massive comet-like object pollute atmosphere of a white dwarf

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) For the first time, scientists using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have witnessed a massive object with the makeup of a comet being ripped apart and scattered in the atmosphere of a white dwarf, the burned-out remains of a compact star.

Hubble finds big brother of Halley's Comet ripped apart by white dwarf

(ESA/Hubble Information Centre) Scientists using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have observed, for the first time, a massive, comet-like object that has been ripped apart and scattered in the atmosphere of a white dwarf. The destroyed object had a chemical composition similar to Halley's Comet, but was 100 000 times more massive than its famous counterpart.

Red Giant Relic Observed --"The Violent Death of a Twin of Our Sun"

The Calabash Nebula, pictured above taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope is a spectacular example of the death of a low-mass star like the sun. This image taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the star going through...        

Feast your eyes on this gorgeous Hubble photo of a star dying

Just like us, stars are born, live, and die, and while plenty of sci-fi movies have taken artistic liberties with their own depictions of stars dying, a new photo captured by the ever reliable Hubble Space Telescope shows what a star...Show More Summary

Hubble captures brilliant star death in 'rotten egg' nebula

The Calabash Nebula, pictured here—which has the technical name OH 231.8+04.2—is a spectacular example of the death of a low-mass star like the sun. This image taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the star going through...Show More Summary

He failed his PhD exam and NASA rejected him 3 times. Advice on perseverance from a guy who overcame all odds to become an astronaut

Astronomers detect hydrogen corona of Jupiter's moon Europa

(Phys.org)—Using the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), astronomers have spotted an atomic hydrogen corona around Jupiter's icy moon Europa. The discovery which could improve our understanding of Europa's tenuous atmosphere was published Jan. 13 in the Astronomical Journal.

Space rocks, a space telescope and a space station: this week in space

This week's goings-on feature SpaceX, Hubble, and a needle in a haystack. Three times as much space per space. Plus some eye candy from NASA's new satellite! The post Space rocks, a space telescope and a space station: this week in space appeared first on ExtremeTech.

Flickering Quasars Used To Measure Universe Expansion | Video

Using gravitational lensing, astronomers have imaged distant quasars with the Hubble Space Telescope. They used the imagery to determine that the Universe is expanding quicker that previously thought.

Hubble Space Telescope Reveals New Estimate of Speed of Expansion of the Universe --"Hints at a New Physics"

The Hubble constant is crucial for modern astronomy as it can help to confirm or refute whether our picture of the Universe -- composed of dark energy, dark matter and normal matter -- is actually correct, or if we are...        

Cosmic lenses support finding on faster than expected expansion of the universe

(ESA/Hubble Information Centre) By using galaxies as giant gravitational lenses, an international group of astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have made an independent measurement of how fast the Universe is expanding. Show More Summary
