Using the powerful eye of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, scientists have found faint signatures of water in the atmospheres of five distant planets. The presence of atmospheric water was reported previously on a few exoplanets orbiting...Show More Summary
Hubble Space Telescope is best chance at learning Comet ISON's fate after close brush with sun
On December 2, 1993, NASA launched the Space Shuttle Endeavor to repair and upgrade the Hubble Telescope (Mission STS-61). The mission had five spacewalks, which is a record. (Eek!) No, @GOP, Unfortunately Rosa Parks Didn’t End Racism – Haha, racism’s over, y’all! Time to pack up and go home. Show More Summary
Astronomers using the combined power of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope and NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have discovered a far-flung trio of primitive galaxies nestled inside an enormous blob of primordial gas nearly 13 billion light-years from Earth.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has provided the first visual evidence showing how our home galaxy, the Milky Way, assembled itself into the majestic pinwheel of stars we see today. Perusing Hubble's deep-sky surveys, astronomers traced 400 galaxies similar to our Milky Way at various stages of construction over a time span of 11 billion years.
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured the best ever image of the globular cluster Messier 15, a gathering of very old stars that orbits the center of the Milky Way. This glittering cluster contains over 100, 000 stars, an...

In the old days, astronomy was simple – comets had tails and asteroids didn’t. Now, as if to not only disprove such established views, but drive the point home, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope took images in September of an asteroid called...Show More Summary
Marvel at the wonders of the Universe courtesy of the fantastic, high-resolution images captured and distributed though NASA’s Space Hubble Telescope! Then realize, absent a miraculous progression in technology that allows for the manager...Show More Summary
These are two pictures taken from the Hubble Space Telescope showing what astronomers believe to be a previously unseen kind of space object. It's described as 'a rotating asteroid with six comet-like tails'. I describe it as a spaceship. Show More Summary
Astronomers spot strange six-tailed asteroid The Hubble Space Telescope has photographed an asteroid unlike anything ever seen before. Described as "weird and freakish", the object designated P/2013 P5 is said to have left astronomers lost for words. Show More Summary
P/2013 P5, with six comet-like jets, was first spotted using the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii and then seen in more detail by the Hubble Space Telescope.
This NASA Hubble Space Telescope set of images reveals a never-before-seen set of six comet-like tails radiating from a body in the asteroid belt, designated P/2013 P5.
Scientists at NASA are scratching their heads after an unusual asteroid was spotted by the Hubble telescope in Hawaii. Unlike most asteroids, this one resembles a “rotating lawn sprinkler,” spraying out six comet-like tails. “We were literally dumbfounded when we saw it,” lead investigator David Jewitt said in a press release.

Can features on Neptune be observed by amateur astronomers? For years, the Hubble Space Telescope and some professional terrestrial observatories have been revealing incomplete belts and spots on the surface of Neptune. Now, spots have been imaged by amateurs.
Image by NASA, ESA, and D. Jewitt (UCLA) In September, the NASA Hubble Space Telescope captured a strange sight: an asteroid with six comet-like tails radiating from the flying space object. Why is this strange? Well, normally, asteroids...Show More Summary
Using the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have detected a multi-tailed main-belt comet the likes of which has never been seen before. Read more...
Astronomers viewing our solar system's asteroid belt with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have seen for the first time an asteroid with six comet-like tails of dust radiating from it like spokes on a wheel. Unlike all other known asteroids,...Show More Summary
Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have observed a unique and baffling object in the asteroid belt that looks like a rotating lawn sprinkler or badminton shuttlecock. While this object is on an asteroid-like orbit, it looks like a comet, and is sending out tails of dust into space.
The image above shows the central parts of the nearby active galaxy NGC 1433. The dim blue background image, showing the central dust lanes of this galaxy, comes from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The colored structures near the center...
