The Hubble Space Telescope’s Finest Photos

Now that the telescope has received its final upgrades, we look back on Hubble's most memorable images from space

A new study unveils NGC the largest region of star formation in the nearby galaxy Composite image from Chandra X-ray Observatory data, with that of the Hubble Space Telescope.

A new study unveils NGC 604, the largest region of star formation in the nearby galaxy M33, in its first deep, high-resolution view in X-rays. This composite image from Chandra X-ray Observatory data (colored blue), combined with optical light data from the Hubble Space Telescope (red and green), shows a divided neighborhood where some 200 hot, young, massive stars reside.

The year in space

In 2012, scientists captured stunning images of Hurricane Sandy, the transit of Venus, the Martian surface and more.

A Pinwheel Galaxy Rainbow - The Pinwheel Galaxy is in the constellation of Ursa Major (the Big Dipper). Also, before the area of sky was though to be void of any galaxies at all because it was so dark. Thank you hubble space telescope!

A Pinwheel Galaxy Rainbow - NASA Spitzer Space Telescope

This image of the Pinwheel Galaxy, or M101, combines data in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet and x-rays from four of NASAs space telescopes. This multi-spectral view shows that both young and old stars are evenly distributed along M101s tightly-wound spiral arms. Such composite images allow astronomers to see how features in one part of the spectrum match up with those seen in other parts.

Yesterday NASA and the European Space Agency released a nice picture of galaxy composed from data taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2003 & The galaxy is in Pisces, about 32 million light years away, and…Read more → Galaxy Photos, Galaxy Images, Galaxy Pictures, Hubble Pictures, Cosmos, Hubble Space Telescope, Space And Astronomy, Ciel Nocturne, Spiral Galaxy

The Milky Way, it turns out, is no ordinary spiral galaxy. According to a massive new survey of stars at the heart of the galaxy by Wisconsin astronomer​s, including professor of astonomy Edward Churchwell and professor of physics Robert Benjamin, the Milky Way has a definitive bar feature -- some 27,000 light years in length -- that distinguis​hes it from pedestrian spiral galaxies, as shown in this artist's rendering. The survey, conducted using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope

Hubble watches star clusters on a collision course

Astronomers have caught two clusters full of massive stars that may be in the early stages of merging. The clusters are 170,000 light-years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite galaxy to our Milky Way.

Without these "bubbles" formed by supernovae, we wouldn't exist. All of the heavier elements that made our planet and our bodies came from the deaths of giant stars.

Space Pictures This Week: Star Gems, Galaxy Bubbles, Fogbow

A glittering nebula, auroras from above, a fogbow at sea, and a strange super-Earth feature among this week's best space pictures.

Some mysteries of the universe were explained this year, including the source of the supernova in a neighboring galaxy.

NGC 1309 - Spiral Galaxy and Friends: A gorgeous spiral galaxy some 100 million light-years distant, NGC 1309 lies on the banks of the constellation of the River (Eridanus). NGC 1309 spans about 30,000 light-years, making it about one third the size of our larger Milky Way galaxy. Bluish clusters of young stars and dust lanes are seen to trace out NGC 1309's spiral arms as they wind around an older, yellowish star population at its core. Not just another pretty face-on spiral galaxy…

This image shows the Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy in infrared light as seen by ESA's Herschel Space Observatory and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The brightest center-left region is called 30 Doradus, or the Tarantula Nebula.

Dusty Space Cloud - NASA Spitzer Space Telescope

Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy in infrared light, this nearby dwarf galaxy looks like a fiery, circular explosion. Rather than fire, however, those ribbons are actually giant ripples of dust spanning tens or hundreds of light-years.

The Milky Way and other galaxies in the universe harbor many young star clusters and associations that each contain hundreds to thousands of hot, massive, young stars known as O and B stars. The star cluster … Cosmos, Spitzer Space Telescope, Hubble Space, Other Galaxies, Star Formation, Space Photos, Space Images, Star Cluster, To Infinity And Beyond
