It's ! Join NASA astronaut John Grunsfeld and EVA manager Russ Werneth in this episode of Hubble Tool Time to learn about the power ratchet tool used on Hubble’s first servicing mission in 1993: go.nasa.gov/2UWWKLm

This image of the Southern Crab Nebula was taken to celebrate Hubble's 29th anniversary since its launch on April 24, 1990. It shows the results of two stellar companions in a gravitational waltz, several thousand light-years from Earth: …

It's ! Join astronaut John Grunsfeld and astronaut trainer Christy Hansen in this first episode to learn about how astronauts trained to use the tools on the Hubble servicing missions: youtube.com/watch?v=qipdcWHjOF

Like an insect’s feelers, long tendrils of gas and dust reach across space throughout the enormous stellar factory known as the Tarantula Nebula. Hubble shared this image of the cosmic spider in 2012 for the telescope’s 22nd anniversary: …

Tuesdays starting tomorrow, we will be releasing a new six-part mini-series about the tools used on Hubble's servicing missions, hosted by retired NASA astronaut John Grunsfeld. Stay tuned for !

Globular cluster Messier 3 contains an incredible half-million stars! This 8-billion-year-old cosmic bauble is one of the largest and brightest globular clusters ever discovered: go.nasa.gov/2UztGZW

Fiery-looking plumes of hydrogen gas blast out of the blue disk of galaxy M82, where stars form 10x faster than in our galaxy. Hubble captured this visible & infrared mosaic of M82 in 2006 to celebrate the telescope's 16th anniversary: …

Tonight is the game! Did you know Edwin Hubble was a gifted basketball player? He and his UChicago team even won a conference title. His basketball flew in space with fellow alum John Grunsfeld (SciAstro) on the telescope’s final se…

Thank you to Jaylen Brown (FCHWPO) and the Celtics for stopping by. Hope you had a ball touring Hubble's Space Telescope Operations Control Center today NASAGoddard!

Messier 2 is one of the largest clusters of its kind and one of the oldest associated with the Milky Way. It is bright enough that it can even be seen with the naked eye when observing conditions are extremely good: go.nasa.gov/2UjjQLP

Dark, wispy clouds of gas and dust are giving birth to new stars 6,400 light-years away in the Monkey Head Nebula (NGC 2174). Hubble captured this infrared view of a small part of the nebula 5 years ago for the telescope's 24th anniversary…

This star-studded image shows us a portion of Messier 11 which is also known as the Wild Duck Cluster, as its brightest stars form a “V” shape that somewhat resembles a flock of ducks in flight: go.nasa.gov/2FvXnRa

This Hubble image reveals the gradual destruction of an asteroid, whose ejected dusty material has formed two long, thin, comet-like tails. The longer tail stretches more than 500,000 miles and the shorter tail is about a quarter as long: …

The mighty gravitational field of a massive cluster of galaxies known as Abell 2218 bends time and space, warping the light from galaxies behind the cluster. Curved arcs of light are the distorted apparitions of background galaxies billion…

RT NASA: .NASAHubble, what's the weather... on Neptune? 💨 🌩️ ️

A storm tracking team at NASAGoddard analyzes telescope data to observe the formation and paths of weather systems on the icy planet. What's next? Studying the storms' vortex and wind sp…

At a distance of 56 million light-years and measuring 157,000 light-years across, M49 was the first member of the Virgo Cluster of galaxies to be discovered, and it is more luminous than any other galaxy at its distance or nearer: …

In 1998, Hubble captured this colorful view of Saturn in infrared light, providing information about clouds and hazes in the planet's atmosphere. See this and other Hubble images of our solar system at:

Happy ! Are you wearing green today? This Hubble image shows illuminated material far outside the radius of its active galaxy. The eerie structure has looping, spiral, and braided shapes and is likely the remnant of a galactic collision: …

Hubble captured this image of Messier 28, a globular cluster in the constellation of Sagittarius (the Archer), in jewel-bright detail. It is about 18,000 light-years away from Earth: go.nasa.gov/2Ht45v1

Happy ! March 14th represented in numbers is 3.14, which is the first three digits in pi, a mathematical constant used to define the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Hubble observes circular objects every day, like this galaxy: …
