Hubble Breaks Cosmic Distance Record

By pushing the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to its limits astronomers have shattered the cosmic distance record by measuring the distance to the most remote galaxy ever seen in the Universe.

Hubble's Diamond in the Dust

Surrounded by an envelope of dust, the subject of this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image is a young forming star known as HBC 1.

This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows the spiral galaxy NGC 4845, located over 65 million light-years away in the constellation of Virgo (The Virgin).

Eta Carinae, the most luminous and massive stellar system within 10,000 light-years, is best known for an enormous eruption seen in the mid-19th century that hurled at least 10 times the sun's mass into space.

Just in time for the release of the movie "Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens," NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has photographed what looks like a cosmic, double-bladed lightsaber.

Astronomers harnessing the combined power of NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes have found the faintest object ever seen in the early universe.

Hubble Captures a Galactic Waltz

This curious galaxy -- only known by the seemingly random jumble of letters and numbers 2MASX J16270254+4328340 -- has been captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope dancing the crazed dance of a galactic merger.

DI Cha: Smoke Ring for a Halo

Two stars shine through the center of a ring of cascading dust in this image taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Spies Big Bang Frontiers

Observations by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have taken advantage of gravitational lensing to reveal the largest sample of the faintest and earliest known galaxies in the Universe.

Hubble's Planetary Portrait Captures New Changes in Jupiter's Great Red Spot Scientists using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have produced new maps of Jupiter the first in a series of annual portraits of the solar system's outer planets.

Hubble Sees an Aging Star Wave Goodbye

This planetary nebula is called PK 329-02.2 and is located in the constellation of Norma in the southern sky.

It is known today that merging galaxies play a large role in the evolution of galaxies and the formation of elliptical galaxies in particular.

Hubble Sees a Galactic Sunflower

The arrangement of the spiral arms in the galaxy Messier 63, seen here in an image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, recall the pattern at the center of a sunflower. So the nickname for this cosmic object the Sunflower Galaxy is no coincidence.

In a survey of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope images of 2,753 young, blue star clusters in the neighboring Andromeda galaxy (M31), astronomers have found that M31 and our own galaxy have a similar percentage of newborn stars based on mass.

New Hubble Image of the Twin Jet Nebula

The shimmering colours visible in this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image show off the remarkable complexity of the Twin Jet Nebula.

Here we see the spectacular cosmic pairing of the star Hen 2-427 more commonly known as WR 124 and the nebula M1-67 which surrounds it.

Little Gem Nebula As Seen By Hubble

This colorful bubble is a planetary nebula called NGC 6818, also known as the Little Gem Nebula.

Astronomers have uncovered a unique process for how the universe's largest elliptical galaxies continue making stars long after their peak years of star birth.

A dying star's final moments are captured in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Stormy seas in Sagittarius

Some of the most breathtaking views in the Universe are created by nebulae hot, glowing clouds of gas.
