Hubble Space Telescope

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden Discusses New James Webb Space Telescope

James Webb Space Telescope: NASA’s New Hubble Space Telescope is the Giant Leap in Exploring the Universe

For two decades of innovative construction and after several setbacks, James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is finally complete and being prepared to launch in 2018.

The immense halo of gas enveloping the Andromeda galaxy, our nearest massive galactic neighbor, is about six times larger and 1,000 times more massive than previously measured.

Galaxies 'Waste' Heavy Elements That can Potentially Form Planets

New data reveals how galaxies are "wasting" heavy elements such as oxygen, carbon and iron by ejecting them into deep space to form halos.

This illustration shows the three steps astronomers used to measure the universe's expansion rate to an unprecedented accuracy, reducing the total uncertainty to 2.4 percent.

Universe is Expanding at 9% Faster Than Previously Thought

New data from the Hubble Space Telescope reveals that the universe is expanding more rapidly than previously thought.

XSP: NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's Advanced Camera Images

Scientists Say 'Red Geysers' Make Dormant Galaxies

Galaxies have turned into deserts without young stars billions of years ago due to galactic warming. The phenomenon has puzzled astronomers to identify the process that makes the gas in these galaxies too energetic and hot to make stars.

This image shows our neighbouring planet Mars, as it was observed shortly before opposition in 2016 by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Captures Biggest, Brightest View of Mars

NASA and ESA's Hubble Space Telescope just captured a stunning close-up view of the Red Planet, since Mars is nearing opposition to the Earth and Sun in the upcoming weeks.

This spiral snowflake galaxy hosts a supermassive black hole inside.

Hubble Captures Perfect Snowflake Galaxy

Hubble Space Telescope just spotted a very bright spiral galaxy, resembling a snowflake and emitting powerful X-ray beams.

Comet 252P/LINEAR as it passed by Earth

Hubble Captures Spinning Comet From Its Closest Approach of Earth

Scientists captured a series of images of the closest celestial object that the Hubble Space Telescope ever captured.

Makemake and its moon, MK2.

Black Moon of Dwarf Planet Makemake Christened MK2

What scientists find odd about MK 2 is that it's an extremely dark moon with a reflectivity like charcoal.

This is a Hubble Space Telescope view of a very massive cluster of galaxies, MACS J0416.1-2403, located roughly 4 billion light-years away and weighing as much as a million billion suns. The cluster's immense gravitational field magnifies the image of gal

NASA Space Telescopes Detect Faintest Galaxy in the Universe

Scientists have detected the faintest known galaxy in the universe, from a distance of 4 billion light years away.

Two direct images of the cometary dust and exoplanet surrounding the young star HD 106906.  The wider field in blue shows Hubble Space Telescope data where the star’s blinding light is artificially eclipsed (gray circular mask).

This Planet Got Exiled From Its Solar System 16 Times Farther Than Pluto

Scientists detected an exoplanet that is exiled into the edges of its solar system, 16 times farther than the distance of Pluto from our sun.

Astronomers Discovered Heartbeats of Stars in Messier 87

Astronomers Discover Heartbeats of Stars in Messier 87

A team of astronomers has discovered red stars with heartbeats in Messier 87 and made use of it to determine the galaxy's age.

Universe is Dying

From the Big Bang to a Whimper: Scientists Confirm the Universe is Slowly Fading Away

An astronomical study presented in Hawaii on Monday confirmed that the universe is slowly fading away by comparing the amount of energy present during its early years against the current time line.

NASA’s Hubble Finds Massive Halo Around Andromeda, Reveals How Galaxies Are Born

A massive gaseous halo around the Andromeda Galaxy has been discovered by a group of scientists using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, a discovery that will answer scientists about the giant spiral galaxies and its evolution and structure such as the Milky Way Galaxy and the Andromeda Galaxy.

The Andromeda Galaxy

Astronomers Discover Andromeda's Massive Gas Halo, Which Extends Near the Earth

Astronomers discover a massive gas halo around Andromeda and is noted to extend near the Earth.

The Andromeda galaxy, our nearest massive galactic neighbor, is about six times larger and 1,000 times more massive than previously measured.

Andromeda Galaxy's Ghostly Halo is 1000 Times Bigger Invading Milky Way Galaxy

Using the Hubble Space Telescope's observations, scientists revealed that Andromeda's mysterious halo is apparently much larger than first thought.
