#HubbleClassic An expanding cloud of gas given off by a dying Sun-like star, this planetary nebula named NGC 3132 is also known as the Southern Ring Nebula. Found in the constellation Vela, it can be seen by amateur astronomers in the Southern Hemisphere…
Astronomers using Hubble data have turned to slime mold, simple single-cell organisms, to help them trace the universe's large-scale network of filaments known as the cosmic web: https://go.nasa.gov/2INpYnr
Hubble Senior Project Scientist Jennifer Wiseman and astrophysicist neiltyson will answer questions about Hubble's 30 years of exploration in an upcoming episode of StarTalkRadio. Questions can be submitted using #CQHubble30 before 10 pm ET on March 10.
Ask astrophysicist @neiltyson & Hubble Senior Project scientist Jennifer Wiseman, PhD, your questions about 30 years of @NASAHubble exp…
This #HubbleClassic shows a thin section of a supernova remnant, produced when a massive star exploded. Observers on Earth witnessed this particular explosion in the year 1006, when it appeared brighter than Venus, so the supernova is called SN 1006: …
#HubbleFriday Seen almost face on, NGC4689 appears less like a spiral galaxy and more like a smudged fingerprint. No matter how good the image quality, there is little contrast between the spiraling arms and the less dense areas in between. Find out why:…
New evidence from Hubble indicates the shape of the Sombrero galaxy is the result of major galaxy mergers, though its smooth disk shows no signs of recent disruption: http://go.nasa.gov/38Rc0MI
#HubbleClassic The Ant Nebula (also known as Menzel 3) resembles the head and thorax of a garden-variety ant. It's produced by a dying Sun-like star as it sheds its outer layers of gas. For more information: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nasahubble/37768879264/in/album-72157661867344528/
#HubbleFriday NGC 2008 is located ~425 million light-years from Earth. Discovered in 1834 by astronomer John Herschel, this galaxy is categorized as a type Sc galaxy in the Hubble sequence, a system used to classify the various morphologies of galaxies: …

As the Hubble Space Telescope celebrates its 30th year in operation, the team behind Hubble will receive the 2020 Collins Trophy for Current Achievement from the airandspace museum. Read more about this prestigious award: https://airandspace.si.edu/newsroom/press-releases/2020-trophy
#HubbleClassic In February 1995, Hubble captured this image of a bow shock near the star LL Orionis in the Orion Nebula. It's formed as a strong "wind" of particles from the star collides with slow-moving gas in the nebula. For more information: …
#HubbleFriday Barred spiral galaxy NGC7541 appears to have a higher-than-usual star formation rate, adding weight to the theory that spiral bars act as stellar nurseries, funneling inward the material and fuel needed to create new baby stars: …
