The top portion of the Hubble Space Telescope is seen in this image, with the red NASA worm logo on it, against black space.
The top portion of the Hubble Space Telescope is backdropped against dark space, just after the Space Shuttle Columbia used its 50-foot-long robotic arm to lower the telescope into its cargo bay on March 3, 2002. The image is one of a series recorded with a digital still camera during and immediately after Hubble's capture.

Hubble Science

Science Highlights

Some of our most notable scientific discoveries

Hubble is far more than pretty pictures. Its suite of scientific instruments make it an orbiting observatory that gathers wavelengths of light from ultraviolet, through visible, and into the near-infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Hubble’s sensitivity to such a broad range of wavelengths makes it one of the most valuable and productive observatories in the history of astronomy.

Hubble view of an expanding halo of light around star v838 monocerotis
"Starry Night", Vincent van Gogh's famous painting, is renowned for its bold whorls of light sweeping across a raging night sky. Although this image of the heavens came only from the artist's restless imagination, a new picture from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope bears remarkable similarities to the van Gogh work, complete with never-before-seen spirals of dust swirling across trillions of kilometres of interstellar space. This image, obtained with the Advanced Camera for Surveys on February 8, 2004, is Hubble's latest view of an expanding halo of light around a distant star, named V838 Monocerotis (V838 Mon). The illumination of interstellar dust comes from the red supergiant star at the middle of the image, which gave off a flashbulb-like pulse of light two years ago. V838 Mon is located about 20,000 light-years away from Earth in the direction of the constellation Monoceros, placing the star at the outer edge of our Milky Way galaxy.

Impact & Benefits

Hubble's mission is to capture observations of the universe, but its technology would alter life on the ground in unique and unexpected ways.
