There have been some incredible images of the James Webb Space Telescope, the next generation telescope and successor to the Hubble. But we aren't really here to look at images of telescopes. We're here to learn some dope space stuff. More »
The Hubble Space Telescopes catches sight of a rare light echo from an exploding star as it ripples like a stone dropped into a lake.
Rising costs of a flagship telescope designed to have 100 times the field of view of Hubble are forcing Nasa to cut back to ensure the mission goes ahead at all Nasa plans to “downscope” one of its flagship missions to keep it within cost estimates. Show More Summary
Photobombing asteroids from our solar system have snuck their way into this deep image of the universe taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
Coppertone may need to re-think its business model, because the Hubble Space Telescope has just found a blistering hot planet where it “snows” sunscreen. Kepler-13Ab, which sits outside our solar system, rains down titanium dioxide (a.k.a. Show More Summary
This spooky sight, imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, resembles fog lit by a streetlamp swirling around a curiously shaped hole – and there is some truth in that. While the 'fog' is dust and gas lit up by the star, the 'hole' really is an empty patch of sky.
Space Science Image of the Week: This spooky sight, resembling fog swirling around a bottomless hole, was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope
This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image is chock-full of galaxies. Each glowing speck is a different galaxy, except the bright flash in the middle of the image which is actually a star lying within our own galaxy that just happened to be in the way. Show More Summary
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has found a blistering hot planet outside our solar system where it "snows" sunscreen. The problem is the sunscreen (titanium oxide) precipitation only happens on the planet's permanent nighttime side. Any possible visitors to the exoplanet,...
(Penn State) Astronomers at Penn State have used the Hubble Space Telescope to find a blistering-hot giant planet outside our solar system where the atmosphere 'snows' titanium dioxide -- the active ingredient in sunscreen. These observations are the first detections of this 'snow-out' process, called a 'cold trap,' on an exoplanet. Show More Summary
(ESA/Hubble Information Centre) Using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered that the brightest galaxies within galaxy clusters 'wobble' relative to the cluster's centre of mass. This unexpected result is inconsistent with predictions made by the current standard model of dark matter. Show More Summary
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope precisely measured the mass of the oldest known planet in our Milky Way galaxy near the core of the ancient globular star cluster M4, located 5,600 light-years away in the summer constellation Scorpius. At an estimated... Related Stories NASA's Hubble Space Telescope --Star-Casted Shadows Reveal Alien Planets
This image, captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, shows what happens when two galaxies become one. The twisted cosmic knot seen here is NGC 2623—or Arp 243—and is located about 250 million light-years away in the constellation of Cancer (The Crab).
NASA has released a breathtaking gallery of images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, showcasing celestial objects contained in the Messier catalog. The Messier collection was initially compiled by renowned French astronomer Charles...Show More Summary
In a nod to the global amateur astronomy community, as well as to any space enthusiast who enjoys the beauty of the cosmos, the Hubble Space Telescope mission is releasing its version of the popular Messier catalog, featuring some of Hubble's best images of these celestial objects that were once noted for looking like comets but turned out not to be.

Some of NASA's brightest minds star in a Lego set with four women scientists, the Hubble Space Telescope and a space shuttle in plastic-brick form.
(ESA/Hubble Information Centre) The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has observed for the first time the source of a gravitational wave, created by the merger of two neutron stars. This merger created a kilonova -- an object predicted by theory decades ago -- that ejects heavy elements such as gold and platinum into space. Show More Summary
The Hubble space telescope and around 70 other observatories have witnessed one of the biggest and rarest explosions in the universe, as two incredibly dense neutron stars collided. The post Hubble and fleet of telescopes watch kilonova as neutron stars collide appeared first on Skymania News. Show More Summary
As far as galaxies are concerned, size can be deceptive. Some of the largest galaxies in the Universe are dormant, while some dwarf galaxies, such as ESO 553-46 imaged here by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, can produce stars at a hair-raising rate. Show More Summary
