Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of the Red Spider Nebula, floating hauntingly inside the constellation of Sagittarius.
There’s a big cloud heading toward us, but it’s not the kind that looks like an elephant or your Uncle Todd. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has been tracking the so-called Smith Cloud, which is charging toward the Milky Way at some 700,000...Show More Summary
The Short Rotation Period of Hi'iaka, Haumea's Largest Satellite Authors: Hastings et al Abstract: Hi'iaka is the larger outer satellite of the dwarf planet Haumea. Using relative photometry from the Hubble Space Telescope and Magellan...Show More Summary
Imogen Whittam, University of the Western Cape Most pictures of galaxies that you see, such as the beautiful images from the Hubble Space Telescope, are optical images. These are made using telescopes which detect light in the same wavelength range that our eyes see. Show More Summary
The universe just got a lot more crowded. Astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope say that there are around two trillion galaxies in the cosmos — at least 10 times higher than previously thought. The findings, to be published in the Astrophysical Journal, shed light on the evolution of...
Hubblesite.org How many galaxies are in the universe? Way, way more than anyone knew. For decades, astronomers had put the number at 100 billion to 200 billion. But new research using data from the Hubble Space Telescope and other observatories...Show More Summary
Hubble telescope images from deep space were collected over 20 years to solve the puzzle the cosmos harbors There are a dizzying two trillion galaxies in the Universe, up to 20 times more than previously thought, astronomers reported on Thursday. Show More Summary
Using the Hubble Space telescope and other observatories, astronomers have completed the most accurate census of galaxies in the observable universe to date. In terms of the actual number, let’s just say we were way the hell off. Read more...
(ESA/Hubble Information Centre) Astronomers using data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescopes and other telescopes have performed an accurate census of the number of galaxies in the Universe. The group came to the surprising conclusion that there are at least 10 times as many galaxies in the observable Universe as previously thought. Show More Summary
On September 26th, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope imaged water vapor plumes erupting off the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa. This finding bolsters other Hubble observations suggesting the icy moon erupts with high-altitude water vapor plumes. The observation increases...
Using the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have photographed the central region of NGC 247 — a spiral galaxy located approximately 11 million light-years from Earth in the direction of the southern constellation of Cetus. NGC 247 is one of the...
When a dying star goes down, does it go down fighting? That seems to be the case with the dying star V Hydrae, a large red giant 1,200 light-years from Earth that the Hubble telescope has seen shooting super-hot blobs of plasma twice the size of Mars...
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope may be getting on in years, but it’s still uncovering incredible things. The more we look at the cosmos, the more boring our solar system seems to be. Hubble […]
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has seen planet-size cannonballs of hot gas whipping past a dying star, but the origin of these plasma balls remains a mystery.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has detected superhot blobs of gas, each twice as massive as the planet Mars, being ejected near a dying star. The plasma balls are zooming so fast through space it would take only 30 minutes for...
Great balls of fire! NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has detected superhot blobs of gas, each twice as massive as the planet Mars, being ejected near a dying star. The plasma balls are zooming so fast through space it would take only 30 minutes for them to travel from Earth to the moon. Show More Summary
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Great balls of fire! NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has detected superhot blobs of gas, each twice as massive as the planet Mars, being ejected near a dying star.
(University of California - Los Angeles) Astronomers have captured the sharpest, most detailed observations of a comet breaking apart 67 million miles from Earth, using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
image credit In its 26 years in space, the Hubble Space Telescope has taken thousands of incredible, awe-inspiring images in the name of science. Most of us are familiar with the colourful ones, showing distant nebula and strange-shaped...Show More Summary
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have imaged what may be water vapor plumes erupting off the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa. This finding bolsters other Hubble observations suggesting the icy moon erupts with high altitude water vapor plumes.
