Hubble offers an insanely clear view of another nebula

Oh, Hubble! How we love the view of distant galaxies you offer us. Up today is the Lagoon Nebula in the Sagittarius constellation. Hubble's taken a picture so clear that you can see every ripple in the nebula's murky starscape.

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched by NASA in 1990, and it's been sitting in Low Earth orbit ever since. It has since spied distant nebulas, supernovas, comets and even comet collisions. It's even helped shed light on the possible age of the universe, and the fact that it could even be accelerating in its expansion.

The Lagoon Nebula as you see it above is a frequent target for terrestrial astronomers for its distinct and beautiful look.
