The Sombrero Galaxy is 50 million light years away, but it looks much closer in this detailed image from the Hubble Space Telescope. Read more...

Hubble's Portrait Of The Crowded Quintuplet Cluster

last weekGenres / Sci Fi : io9

This latest image from the Hubble Space Telescope is utterly stunning: it’s of the Quintuplet Cluster, named for its five brightest stars. Up until 1990, we had no idea that this existed: because it’s so close to the center of the galaxy, dust has blocked our view of it. Read more...

Hubble's Anniversary Image Reveals Stars' Birthplace

After 22 years in orbit, the Hubble Space telescope is still hard at work

Pluto: From Hubble to New Horizons

In 2010, a map of Pluto’s surface was created using multiple images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. For half a decade, they were the best images of the world we had. But that’s all changed. The folks at the Space Telescope Science...Show More Summary

Image of the Day --Star Clusters Orbiting a Ghostly Galaxy

The ghostly shells of galaxy ESO 381-12 are captured here in a new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, set against a backdrop of distant galaxies. The strikingly uneven structure and the clusters of stars that orbit around the...

Hubble Telescope’s Successor Will Browse Space for Alien Life

A team of scientists from the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) is planning the development of a new deep-space telescope to succeed the Hubble Telescope and the soon-to-be-launched James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).

Odd Orbits Deepen Pluto’s Mystery

New analysis of Pluto’s system, gleaned from Hubble Space Telescope images, suggests that three of the dwarf planet's small moons—Styx, Nix and Hydra—are locked in close rotation. The post Odd Orbits Deepen Pluto’s Mystery appeared first on WIRED.

A Bold Future Telescope Proposed for Space Astronomy

In the April 16, 2015, issue of Nature, I published an article that was entitled "Hubble's Legacy." In that article, I argued that the lesson from the amazing success of the Hubble Space Telescope has been that it is better to fund the right experiment fully than to compromise so as to fit a tight budget.

Hubble --"Largest Moon in Our Solar System Harbors a Buried Ocean 100 Kilometers Deep" (Weekend Feature)

This past March, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope revealed the best evidence yet for an underground saltwater ocean on Ganymede, Jupiter's largest moon. The subterranean ocean is thought to have more water than all the water on Earth's surface. Identifying liquid...

"Cosmic Variance" --Are There Fewer Faint, Distant Galaxies in the Universe?

There may be far fewer galaxies further out in the universe then might be expected, according to a new study. Over the years, the Hubble Space Telescope has allowed astronomers to look deep into the universe. The long view stirred.....

Astronomers find 'comet's tail' trailing Neptune-sized exoplanet

They call it "the Behemoth." Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have discovered that a red dwarf star is boiling off the atmosphere of a Neptune-sized exoplanet, causing it to form an enormous cloud that surrounds and trails the planet like a comet's tail.

Scientists Spot Distant Planet With Comet-Like Tail

Astronomers using the Hubble space telescope have spied a distant, Neptune-sized planet throwing off a massive cloud of hydrogen gas that makes it look something like a super-comet.

Hubble Sees a 'Behemoth' Bleeding Atmosphere Around a Warm Neptune-Sized Exoplanet

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have discovered an immense cloud of hydrogen dispersing from a warm, Neptune-sized planet orbiting a nearby star. The enormous comet-like tail of the planet is about 50 times the size of the parent star. The findings will be published in the June 25 issue of the journal Nature.

Pluto poised for star turn as NASA probe races toward historic encounter

last monthHealth : The Checkup

Pluto is so far away (3 billion miles) and so small (about ­two-thirds the size of our moon) that we’ve never had a good look at it, not even with the Hubble Space Telescope. In Hubble images, Pluto has always been a tiny, pixelated blob.Read full article >>

It’s full of galaxies!

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

It’s full of galaxies! This new image from the Hubble Space Telescope and the ESO’s New Technology Telescope shows four of the seven galaxies in the galaxy group HCG 16: NGC 839, NGC 838, NGC 835, and NGC 833. Check out those glowing centers and wispy tails of gas! Read more...

"Lighting Up the Universe" --Black-Hole Creation Triggered By Colliding Galaxies

Using the Hubble Space Telescope's infrared vision, astronomers have unveiled some of the previously hidden origins of quasars, the brightest objects in the universe. A new study finds that quasars are born when galaxies crash into each other and fuel...

An ode to the Hubble Space Telescope

In honor of the Hubble Space Telescope's 25th anniversary, NPR celebrates the iconic space craft with a little help from Iggy Azalea's “Trouble.” (more…)

Galactic crashes fuel quasars

Using the Hubble Space Telescope's infrared vision, astronomers have unveiled some of the previously hidden origins of quasars, the brightest objects in the universe. A new study finds that quasars are born when galaxies crash into each other and fuel supermassive, central black holes.

ALMA captures sharpest ever view of star formation in the distant universe

last monthTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) has succeeded in imaging star formation regions in a distant galaxy, with a resolution six times greater than that achievable by the Hubble Space Telescope. The galaxy, dubbed HATLAS J090311.6+003906 or SDP.81, would ordinarily be far too distant to be observed in such impressive detail. Show More Summary
