For so many nerds, the Hubble space telescope feels more like a friend than a hunk of metal in the cold vacuum of space—a friend whose job you’re super jealous of. The ‘scope, which launched on the space shuttle Discovery in 1990, has sent back some of the most incredible images from the final frontier—over 1.3… Read more...
Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have captured a stunning image of a nebula located 5,200 light-years from Earth. Located in the direction of the constellation Canis Major, the nebula enshrouds a large, bright star named EZ Canis Majoris. “EZ Canis Majoris is responsible for creating...
The Hubble Space Telescope celebrates 27 years with two close friends
Five hundred and eighty kilometers above Earth, orbiting at more than 27,000 kilometers per hour, is a 12-ton, bus-sized eye on the universe: the Hubble Space Telescope. When Hubble launched aboard the space shuttle Discovery on April 24, 1990, scientists hoped it would provide answers to many of the great unknown questions of the day. Show More Summary
(ESA/Hubble Information Centre) A Swedish-led team of astronomers used the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to analyze the multiple images of a gravitationally lensed type Ia supernova for the first time. The four images of the exploding star will be used to measure the expansion of the Universe. Show More Summary
The Hubble Space Telescope birthday celebration kicks off with a gorgeous image of two spiral galaxies that like to buddy up.
(ESA/Hubble Information Centre) This stunning cosmic pairing of the two very different looking spiral galaxies NGC 4302 and NGC 4298 was imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The image brilliantly captures their warm stellar glow and brown, mottled patterns of dust. Show More Summary
NASA’s Cassini mission and Hubble Space Telescope provided information that suggest a form of chemical energy, that life can feed on, appears to exist on Saturn's moon Enceladus. Read more... More about Real People, Real Time Video, Cassini Spacecraft, Cassini, and Hubble Space Telescope
The Hubble Space Telescope has again spotted plumes shooting from Jupiter's Europa, and scientists are eager to go have a closer look.

NASA has released a composite image created from observations made by the Voyager 2 probe and the Hubble Space Telescope, displaying intense auroras glowing in the atmosphere of the icy planet Uranus... Continue Reading Intense auroras...Show More Summary
Bright auroras light up Uranus' atmosphere in two newly released photos, which combine observations by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the agency's Voyager 2 probe.
The Hubble Space Telescope captured the first clear images of the auroras in 2011. In 2012 and 2014, the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) aboard Hubble captured the phenomena again.
The Juno space probe and the Hubble Space Telescope recorded new images of Jupiter that will help scientists study the solar system’s largest planet.
The Hubble Space Telescope was used to capture new imagery of Jupiter on April 3, 2017. The gas giant will be at opposition with Earth on April 7
During April 2017 Jupiter is in opposition: it is at its closest to Earth and the hemisphere facing Earth is fully illuminated by the Sun. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope used this special configuration to capture an image of what...
