    Universe in Motion

    Since its launch 25 Years ago, the Hubble Telescope has returned images of unprecedented beauty of a dynamic and changing universe. You have my apologies for the length of this video, but even if you only watch a few minutes of it, you will experience something extraordinary. In this video, Hubble’s most iconic images are bought to life to answer some of the most important questions facing astronomers today. Colliding galaxies, the birth and death of stars, jets of gas […]

    Hubble Memorable Moments

    Hubble Memorable Moments: Brute Force In this second video of NASA’s Hubble Memorable Moments series celebrating Hubble’s 25 years, the team scrambles to work out an unusual solution to a problem encountered during an instrument repair. The Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph, or STIS, was installed on Hubble during Servicing Mission 2 in 1997. The versatile instrument was heavily used until a power supply failure in 2004. The Hubble team spent years preparing for a complex repair task in 2009 on […]

    Earth’s Eyes In The Universe

    Earth’s Eyes In The Universe The Hubble Space Telescope This is a documentary that was actually released last year, it goes for about 46 minutes. I would suggest that you save and watch it when you’ve got the time. This person’s (Sarcipious A) comment sums it up very well! An Atheists view of reality is of a Universe nearly 14 billion years old, astonishingly complex, fearsome even, but full of awe, we are but sparks in the vastness, energetic, bright […]

  • Hubble Telescope Detects ‘Sunscreen’ Layer on Distant Planet

    Hubble Telescope Detects ‘Sunscreen’ Layer on Distant Planet

    Using NASA’s Hubble Telescope, scientists detected a stratosphere on the planet WASP-33b. A stratosphere occurs when molecules in the atmosphere absorb ultraviolet and visible light from the star. This absorption warms the stratosphere and acts as a kind of sunscreen layer for the planet below. The presence of a stratosphere can provide clues about the composition of a planet and how it formed. This atmospheric layer includes molecules that absorb ultraviolet and visible light, acting as a kind of “sunscreen” […]

  • Hand Prints on Hubble

    Hand Prints on Hubble

    Every visit from an astronaut to the Hubble leaves a hand print. There have been 4 visits to it since its launch. As the Hubble Space Telescope celebrates its 25th anniversary, scientists are reflecting on the key role astronauts played in allowing the telescope to continue making great discoveries.

  • Hubble View of the Galaxy Cluster Abell 3827

    Hubble View of the Galaxy Cluster Abell 3827

    This video using images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the rich galaxy cluster Abell 3827. The strange blue structures surrounding the central galaxies are gravitationally lensed views of a much more distant galaxy behind the cluster. Observations of the central four merging galaxies have provided hints that the dark matter around one of the galaxies is not moving with the galaxy itself, possibly implying dark matter-dark matter interactions of an unknown nature are occurring. Enjoy and share….. Celestron […]

  • A Starry Snapshot for Hubble’s 25th

    A Starry Snapshot for Hubble’s 25th

    We have become so used to Hubble and the spectacular shots we see that we tend to take it for granted. Here we have a short video celebrating Hubble. After a quarter of a century in space, Hubble has captured a dramatic new cosmic landscape to take centre stage as the 25th anniversary image. A new addition to Hubble’s iconic collection of stunning images of the Universe. The new image of star cluster Westerlund 2, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble […]

  • Hubble Returns to the Eagle Nebula

    Hubble Returns to the Eagle Nebula

    From the first image of the pillars of creation in 1985 to today’s much clearer images,Hubble continues to astound us. The Hubble Space Telescope has returned to one of its most famous landmarks: the Eagle Nebula, also known as the Pillars of Creation. The revolutionary space telescope has delivered a new visible-light image as well as a revealing infrared image. These two images show the Eagle Nebula in more detail than ever before. Enjoy and share…. Celestron 21041 60mm PowerSeeker […]

  • The Riddle of the Missing Stars

    The Riddle of the Missing Stars

    Hubble has done it again!!!!!!! It has provided us with a new riddle to be studied and deciphered. This will surely keep scientists busy for awhile. Hubble observations reveal that they are even more mysterious than previously thought.New observations of four globular clusters in the Fornax dwarf galaxy have called into question one of the leading theories about how these clusters form. In this episode we explain the mystery behind these objects and how it is deepened by these new […]
