Hubble is most famous for its beautiful and iconic images that forever changed the way we view the cosmos. From breathtaking nebulae and sparkling star clusters, to deep fields littered with galaxies, see more of Hubble's famous and latest images.

As a cosmic photographer, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has taken over a million snapshots documenting the universe. These images illustrate, explain, and inspire us with their grandeur. But how are those images taken and processed? This video, winner of a Webby Award, explains the answer to that question.



Ever wonder what the music of the spheres would sound like? Hubble brings us cosmic sights, but these astronomical marvels can also be experienced with other senses. Through data sonification, the same digital data that is translated into images is transformed into sound.

Listen to Sonifications
A bright red galaxy shines near the top of the image, with a line horizontally stretching and jutting across the image to signify a sonification being played.
The image captures a frame of the sonification of NGC 1569 - the converting of Hubble image data to sound.

This data sonification of the star V838 Monocerotis, or V838 Mon, shows two Hubble images taken almost seven months apart. A pulse of light from the central star illuminates clouds of dust and gas surrounding V838 Mon.

This e-book highlights the Hubble mission’s recent discoveries about worlds outside our solar system, known as exoplanets and is part of a series called Hubble Focus, which presents some of Hubble's recent cosmic discoveries. Its cover, shown here, features an illustration of the scorching hot planet Kepler-13Ab that orbits extremely close to its host star, Kepler-13A, which is part of a multiple star system. The star’s companions, Kepler-13B and the small orange-red dwarf Kepler-13C, are in the background.
