Gorgeous Hubble photo of Mars ‘photobombed’ by tiny moon

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope consistently delivers breathtaking views of the planets in our galactic neighborhood, but when it set its sights on Mars recently for a series of snapshots it captured more than just Mars. After taking a...Show More Summary

Hubble sees martian moon orbiting the Red Planet

The sharp eye of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured the tiny moon Phobos during its orbital trek around Mars. Because the moon is so small, it appears star-like in the Hubble pictures.

Hubble spots a barred lynx spiral

Discovered by British astronomer William Herschel over 200 years ago, NGC 2500 lies about 30 million light-years away in the northern constellation of Lynx. As this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows, NGC 2500 is a particular kind of spiral galaxy known as a barred spiral, its wispy arms swirling out from a bright, elongated core.

'Hidden Galaxy' reveals itself in lovely Hubble image - CNET

A galaxy that's very good at hiding gives up its secrets to the eagle eye of the Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble pushed beyond limits to spot clumps of new stars in distant galaxy

When it comes to the distant universe, even the keen vision of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope can only go so far. Teasing out finer details requires clever thinking and a little help from a cosmic alignment with a gravitational lens.

Hubble eyes a powerful galaxy with a password name

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Not all galaxies have the luxury of possessing a simple moniker or quirky nickname. This impressive galaxy imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope is one of the unlucky ones, and goes by a name that looks more like a password for a computer: 2XMM J143450.5+033843.

Hubble captures massive dead disk galaxy that challenges theories of galaxy evolution

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) By combining the power of a 'natural lens' in space with the capability of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers made a surprising discovery -- the first example of a compact yet massive, fast-spinning, disk-shaped galaxy that stopped making stars only a few billion years after the big bang.

Image: A stormy stellar nursery

This shot from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows a maelstrom of glowing gas and dark dust within one of the Milky Way's satellite galaxies, the Large Magellanic Cloud.

"Into the Unknown" --JWST to Target Very First Galaxies After the Big Bang to Chemical Fingerprints of Life On Enceladus and Exoplanets Like TRAPPIST-1e (WATCH Today's 'Galaxy' Stream)

Mission officials for NASA's James Webb Space Telescope, which will be 100 times more powerful than Hubble, announced some of the science targets the telescope will observe following its launch and commissioning. These specific observations are part of a program...        

Hubble Space Telescope Reveals Glittering Galaxies Of New Stars

last monthNews : Huffington Post

Using “natural magnifying lenses in space,” the acclaimed Hubble Space Telescope has photographed amazing close-up glimpses of what NASA refers to as “the universe’s brightest infrared galaxies.” “The galaxy images, magnified through...Show More Summary

Hubble sees dancing brown dwarfs caught in cosmic waltz - CNET

It's a real-life "Dancing with the Stars." The Hubble Space Telescope has followed the movements of two "failed stars" in a nearby system.

Best of Last Week – Possible phenomenon beyond Standard Model, Wow! mystery signal solved and alcohol impact on brain

It was another good week for physics as an international team of researchers offered new confirmation of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity by using the Hubble Space Telescope to measure shifts in the apparent position of a star. Show More Summary

New way to weigh a white dwarf: Use Hubble Space Telescope

(Penn State) For the first time, astronomers have used a novel method to determine the mass of a type of star known as a 'white dwarf' -- the shrunken corpse of a dead star that used to be like our sun. The achievement, made with the...Show More Summary

Hubble astronomers use a century-old relativity experiment to measure a white dwarf's mass

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Astronomers have used the sharp vision of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to repeat a century-old test of Einstein's general theory of relativity. The Hubble team measured the mass of a white dwarf, the burned-out remnant of a normal star, by seeing how much it deflects the light from a background star.

Scientists have done what Einstein said was impossible — used relativity to measure a star's mass

Astronomers scanning the skies with NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have discovered the bending of one star’s light by another star’s gravity — and have even used that distortion to measure a star’s mass. The findings, published in the journal Science, confirm a key tenet of Albert Einstein’s theories...

Cosmic magnifying-glass effect captures universe's brightest galaxies

Boosted by natural magnifying lenses in space, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured unique close-up views of the universe's brightest infrared galaxies, which are as much as 10,000 times more luminous than our Milky Way.

Hubble Zooms in On Alien Atmospheres --"Something is Changing the Way These Planets Look"

Is it a case of nature versus nurture when it comes to two "cousin" exoplanets? In a unique experiment, scientists used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to study two "hot Jupiter" exoplanets. Because these planets are virtually the same size and...
