At first glance, this picture may not look like much, but it's nearly 10 years of exposures from Hubble showing 10,000 galaxies in all of the wavelengths that the telescope is capable of capturing.
A mere 4.5 billion years ago, this is what our solar system would have looked like.
Fly to the edge of the known Universe at something way, way, way beyond warp speed.
Normally, space does not look like this, but the Hubble Space Telescope had a little accident.
Using the Hubble telescope, scientists observe some of the smallest and faintest early galaxies ever seen in our universe.
Using the Hubble telescope, scientists determine that two planets in the Milky Way galaxy are covered entirely with clouds.
Proxima Centauri is the closest star to Earth, but it's so dim that it's invisible to us. Not so to Hubble, though, especially not right now.
The Hubble space telescope has uncovered the farthest planet ever to form from its star, challenging what we know about planet creation.
We currently think that the universe is some 13.7 billion years old. With that in mind, the zoomed-in cutaway above is pointing to a very, very distant galaxy, which we've observed 420 million years after the big bang. That means the light we're seeing from it spent 13.3 billion years traveling through the cosmos. Whoa.
The Hubble telescope has captured literally thousands of photos of the starry skies — each one beautiful in its own right. Now, these gorgeous photos have been pieced together in a mosaic that recreates Van Gogh's seminal The Starry Night.
