The scientists conclude the atmospheric variations occurred in response to a powerful eruption on the planet's host star, an event observed by NASA's Swift satellite. The Hubble would not be able to do what it does without the help of a small group of dedicated engineers and technicians at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Suggested Questions:1. For more information, visit, To celebrate Spitzer's 16th birthday, the Hubble Space Telescope team decided to put together a special present for their fellow "observing buddy."

Before now, NASA hadn't fully processed the rich images … Servicing Mission 1, launched in December 1993, was the first opportunity to conduct planned maintenance on the telescope. NASA Friday is releasing more than 50 newly-processed images from its archives featuring 30 objects in the night sky. Infrared light, however, reveals a more complex scene, as shown in Hubble's 2013 image. On Friday, the space agency released over 50 new images captured by the legendary Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble was uniquely designed to be serviced in space so that components could be repaired and upgraded. The flight traverses the foreground stars and approaches the lower left rim of the nebula Gum 29. As children and teenagers, six women couldn’t fathom the journey their lives would take to bring them to work on the Hubble Space Telescope. The illuminating stars for these pillars are located well off the top of the image. Now it’s your turn to answer some questions about Hubble! It affects one of their science objectives. A second look at data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is reanimating the claim that the nearby star Fomalhaut hosts a massive exoplanet. Hubble captured this image of Messier 107 – one of more than 150 globular star clusters found around the disc of the Milky Way galaxy. Witness the ingenuity that keeps such a complex and remote machine working to investigate the mysteries of the universe for more than 30 years. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope's launch, NASA has released new Hubble images of 30 of the Caldwell catalog space sights to see. The full image package for galaxy cluster Abell 370 is available on the, The Hubble Space Telescope has captured even more evidence of water vapor plumes on Jupiter's icy moon Europa. The up-to-date database now contains details and images of 87 of the 109 objects. NASA, ESA, STScI, M.H. Astronauts using custom-designed tools performed challenging spacewalks on five servicing missions from 1993 to 2009 to keep Hubble operating so that it could change our fundamental understanding of the universe. Lying in the constellation Cetus (The Sea Monster), the galaxy’s outer region appears almost translucent, pinpricked with stars and strange wispy tendrils.. These tools and the knowledge gleaned from the Hubble servicing missions are used today by astronauts on the International Space Station, and will be critical to NASA's future crewed missions to the Moon and Mars. This design, plus SLIC's composite construction, makes it much lighter and stronger than traditional aluminum carriers. In 2009, those data were augmented with new infrared observations to create the HUDF-IR.
