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...
The Hubble Space Telescope has spotted a coal black moon orbiting a shiny red dwarf planet known as Makemake in the outer reaches of the solar system. The newly discovered moon is estimated to be 100 miles across and it orbits the dwarf planet at a distance of just 13,000 miles. For comparison,...
Astronomers found the moon, nicknamed MK2, in an image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.
Peering to the outskirts of our solar system, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has spotted a small, dark moon orbiting Makemake, the second brightest icy dwarf planet -- after Pluto -- in the Kuiper Belt. The moon -- provisionally designated S/2015 (136472) 1 and nicknamed MK 2 -- is more than 1,300 times fainter than Makemake. Show More Summary
The James Webb Space Telescope, successor to NASA's hugely successful Hubble, is finally taking shape, on track for launch in 2018
To celebrate the Hubble Space Telescope’s 26th anniversary in space, NASA released a series of images, videos, and simulations of an object known as the Bubble Nebula. In the main image, a giant star is blowing a cosmic hurricane into space, forming a brilliant halo as it smacks into the chill molecular cloud surrounding its parent star. Show More Summary
Twenty-six years ago today the Hubble Space Telescope was lifted into orbit on board the space shuttle Discovery
On April 24, 1990, a revolutionary eyepiece to the heavens was lifted into orbit on board the space shuttle Discovery
A detailed look at NGC 7635, also called the Bubble Nebula, by the Hubble Space Telescope. A zoom into the Hubble Space Telescope photograph of an enormous, balloon-like bubble being blown into space by a super-hot, massive star. Astronomers trained the iconic telescope on this colorful feature, called the Bubble Nebula, or NGC 7635. Show More Summary
Astronomers have selected a dramatic image of the "Bubble Nebula," otherwise known as NGC 7635, to celebrate the 26th anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope. The gracefully-ageing telescope is still in excellent shape...Show More Summary

NASA released a stunning image of the Bubble Nebula in advance of the space telescope’s 26th anniversary.
Hubble celebrates its anniversary with a new picture of the Bubble Nebula, showing its entire glory in one image for the first time.
In celebration of the Hubble Space Telescope's 26th birthday, NASA astronomers have highlighted an image of a massive star blowing a bubble into space. The Bubble Nebula, as it is known, sits 7,100 light-years from Earth. DON'T MISS: There’s...Show More Summary
