  • Jupiter in 4k Ultra HD

    Jupiter in 4k Ultra HD

    New imagery from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope is revealing details never before seen on Jupiter. High-resolution maps and spinning globes (rendered in the 4k Ultra HD format) are the first products to come from a program to study the solar system’s outer planets each year using Hubble. The observations are designed to capture a broad range of features, including winds, clouds, storms and atmospheric chemistry. These annual studies will help current and future scientists see how such giant worlds change […]

    Hubble’s Pluto Mission

    Before NASA’s New Horizons probe flew past Pluto in July 2015, almost all of the information scientists had about this mysterious dwarf planet came from observations made by Hubble. What discoveries did Hubble make in the Pluto system and how will the greatest telescope ever built advance our knowledge of this distant, icy world following New Horizons’ flyby?

  • Universe in Motion

    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” […]

    The Hubble Space Telescope

    5 Space Telescopes You Should Know About Besides Hubble Galileo began the journey back in 1610 by pointing a telescope to the stars. Since than we have worked to better that telescope by building bigger and better ones.There are a total of 96 telescopes in space today. The most famous is the Hubble Space Telescope, it recently turned 25, so we thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the other space telescopes. The James Webb, […]
