Riddle of the missing stars: Hubble observations cast further doubt on how globular clusters formed

Thanks to the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, some of the most mysterious cosmic residents have just become even more puzzling. New observations of globular clusters in a small galaxy show they are very similar to those found in the Milky Way, and so must have formed in a similar way.

"Large Chunk of Milky Way's 1st Generation Stars are Missing"

Thanks to the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, some of the most mysterious cosmic residents have just become even more puzzling. New observations of globular clusters in a small galaxy show they are very similar to those found in the Milky...

Hubble telescope captures stunning image of planetary nebula

The Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 has captured a striking image of a lumpy nebula in the constellation Camelopardis, a.k.a. "The Giraffe." NGC 1501 formed when a massive star shed its outer layers, sending plasma into space. Show More Summary

Supernovas, ice sculptures and star nurseries: Hubble's stellar 25 years

Nestled in orbit just above Earth's atmosphere — the biggest obstacle to space observation from the ground — the Hubble Space Telescope has been able to capture extraordinary and beautiful images of previously unseen parts of the universe. Show More Summary

Astronomy: Debris-strewn exoplanetary construction yards

Over the past few years, astronomers have found an incredible diversity in the architecture of exoplanetary systems, as well as the planets themselves. A survey using the sharp view of the Hubble Space Telescope has uncovered a similar diversity in the debris systems that coincide with the formation of exoplanets. Show More Summary

Jets, bubbles and bursts of light in Taurus

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has snapped a striking view of a multiple star system called XZ Tauri, its neighbour HL Tauri, and several nearby young stellar objects. XZ Tauri is blowing a hot bubble of gas into the surrounding space, which is filled with bright and beautiful clumps that are emitting strong winds and jets. Show More Summary

NASA's hubble surveys debris-strewn exoplanetary construction yards

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have completed the largest and most sensitive visible-light imaging survey of dusty debris disks around other stars. These dusty disks, likely created by collisions between leftover objects from planet formation, were imaged around stars as young as 10 million years old and as mature as more than 1 billion years old. read more

Revolutionary ALMA image reveals planetary genesis

This is the sharpest image ever taken by ALMA -- sharper than is routinely achieved in visible light with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. It shows the protoplanetary disc surrounding the young star HL Tauri. These new ALMA observations...Show More Summary

Distant Galaxy Hints at a "Hidden Universe" of Unobserved Objects (Weekend Feature)

Using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope astronomers have made what may be the most reliable distance measurement yet of an object that existed in the Universe’s formative years. The galaxy is one of the faintest, smallest and most distant galaxies...

These Stunning Hubble Images Show Us The Secrets Of The Universe

Even if you know nothing about astronomy, you've likely heard the name Hubble in reference to the Hubble Space Telescope. This telescope, which uses a series of high-resolution cameras to observe the visible universe, has captured the...Show More Summary

A cyclops planet and a galactic horror show: It's a Hubble Halloween!

This Halloween, NASA has released two images from the Hubble Space Telescope that prove space can be a spooky place, if you know where to look.

"Moment of Awe" --The Ghostly Light from 200 Billion Outcast Stars in Pandora's Galaxy Cluster

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has picked up the faint, ghostly glow of stars ejected from ancient galaxies that were gravitationally ripped apart several billion years ago. The mayhem happened 4 billion light-years away, inside an immense collection of nearly 500...

Hubble sees 'ghost light' from dead galaxies

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has picked up the faint, ghostly glow of stars ejected from ancient galaxies that were gravitationally ripped apart several billion years ago. The mayhem happened 4 billion light-years away, inside an immense collection of nearly 500 galaxies nicknamed "Pandora's Cluster," also known as Abell 2744. read more

Jupiter gains a creepy ‘eye’ in this Hubble photo

3 weeks agoHealth : The Checkup

No big deal guys, Jupiter is just giving us all side-eye. The Hubble Space Telescope took this spooky space pic while monitoring Jupiter's Great Red Spot (GRS) on April 21. GRS is an ongoing cyclone storm -- bigger than our entire planet. Show More Summary

"The Galaxy with No Central Black Hole" --Hubble Space Telescope Discovery (Today's Most Popular)

In the fall of 2012, astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope obtained a remarkable new view of a monster elliptical galaxy, with a core bigger than any seen before. Spanning a little over one million light-years, the galaxy is...

One of Oldest, Most Distant Galaxies Reveals a "Hidden Universe" of Unobserved Objects

Using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope astronomers have made what may be the most reliable distance measurement yet of an object that existed in the Universe’s formative years. The galaxy is one of the faintest, smallest and most distant galaxies...

Space from Telescope

The Hubble Space Telescope’s launch and deployment in April 1990 marked the most significant advance in astronomy since Galileo’s telescope. Our view of the universe and our place within it has never been the same. The original 1995 image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of the Pillars of Creation. Located at the heart of […]

Hubble Captures an Alien Planets Secrets of Air Temperatures & Water Vapor --"A First!"

A team of scientists using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have made the most detailed map ever of the temperature of an exoplanet’s atmosphere, and traced the amount of water it contains. The planet targeted for both of the investigations...

NASA's Hubble maps the temperature and water vapor on an extreme exoplanet

A team of scientists using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has made the most detailed global map yet of the glow from a turbulent planet outside our solar system, revealing its secrets of air temperatures and water vapor. Hubble observations show the exoplanet, called WASP-43b, is no place to call home. Show More Summary
