A small asteroid has been caught in the process of spinning so fast it's throwing off material, according to new data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and other observatories.

Weighing the Milky Way

The mass of the Milky Way is one of the most fundamental measurements astronomers can make about our galactic home.

Hubble Starts Sending Images Home Again

In the early morning of October 27, the Hubble Space Telescope targeted a field of galaxies not far from the Great Square in the constellation Pegasus.

NASA is working to resume science operations of the Hubble Space Telescope after the spacecraft entered safe mode on Friday, October 5, shortly after 6:00 p.m. EDT. Hubble's instruments still are fully operational and are expected to produce excellent science for years to come.

Astronomers using the ultraviolet vision of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have captured one of the largest panoramic views of the fire and fury of star birth in the distant universe.

A Peculiar Galactic Clash

Galaxies are not static islands of stars -- they are dynamic and ever-changing, constantly on the move through the darkness of the Universe.

This image, captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3), shows a galaxy named UGC 6093.

Hubble Discovers Wobbling Galaxies

Using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered that the brightest galaxies within galaxy clusters "wobble" relative to the cluster's centre of mass.

Hubble Unravels a Twisted Cosmic Knot

Hubble unveils a violent encounter of two galaxies becoming one, 250 million light-years away.

NGC 4490 Is Bursting With Starbirth

This oddly-shaped galactic spectacle is bursting with brand new stars.

Hubble Observes Pitch Black Planet

Astronomers have discovered that the well-studied exoplanet WASP-12b reflects almost no light, making it appear essentially pitch black.

Galactic David and Goliath

The gravitational dance between two galaxies in our local neighbourhood has led to intriguing visual features in both as witnessed in this new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image.

Hubble Pushed Beyond Limits to Spot Clumps of New Stars in Distant Galaxy

Not all galaxies have the luxury of possessing a simple moniker or quirky nickname.

This image displays a galaxy known as ESO 486-21 (with several other background galaxies and foreground stars visible in the field as well).

Finding such a galaxy early in the history of the universe challenges the current understanding of how massive galaxies form and evolve, say researchers.

This seemingly unspectacular series of dots with varying distances between them actually shows the slow waltz of two brown dwarfs.

The NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope has peered across six billion light years of space to resolve extremely faint features of the galaxy cluster Abell 370 that have not been seen before.

A Swedish-led team of astronomers used the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to analyse the multiple images of a gravitationally lensed type Ia supernova for the first time.

On April 3, 2017, as Jupiter made its nearest approach to Earth in a year, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope viewed the solar system's largest planet in all of its up-close glory.
