Hubble Space Telescope

Astronomers re-examined 37,000 images taken by Hubble over 19 years of objects in deep space. The reward was finding 1701 asteroid orbits in the asteroid belt, of which 1031 are uncatalogued asteroids. About 400 of the asteroids are not
Webb's measurements provide new light on a decade-long mystery known as the Hubble stress - the differences in the age of the universe between the Hubble observations and past observations that remain unexplained * Prof. Adam Rees, winner
For the first time, NASA activated a tool designed to discover planets many light years away on an object in the solar system, in a study of the winds of Jupiter
The discovery of an S-shaped galaxy could revolutionize the understanding of the process of star formation
The first galaxies were much less developed than the spiral and spherical galaxies that exist today, which are actually the result of mergers, both because of the stage of development but also because of the conditions that prevailed at the time
The two-dimensional reflection of the galaxies in the night sky does not say much about the real distances between the galaxies and between them and the Earth
Two of these galaxies close to each other are a rare type of emission line galaxies, because they are undergoing a massive process of new star birth. The others are at different distances but line up nicely in a row
Astroscale's collaboration with the Momentos company offers NASA a commercial solution that will allow the famous satellite - which recently celebrated its 33rd birthday - to be attached and towed to an orbit that will also be cleaned of space debris
A "Medusa Galaxy" with trailing star tentacles hangs in inky darkness in this image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope captured a lush and highly detailed view of the "Pillars of Creation," a region where new stars form within dense clouds of gas and dust previously captured in an iconic image on
A combination of photographs taken by the two large space telescopes in partially overlapping wavebands made it possible to identify new details about the role of interstellar dust in connections between neighboring galaxies
Citizen scientists have classified lexicons to help scientists solve an astronomical-scale problem -- how to sort through the vast amounts of information generated by robotic telescopes
This system - named Earp 195 - appears in the Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies, a list that shows some of the weirder and wonderful galaxies in the universe
NASA is taking additional steps to investigate the malfunction that happened to the computer of the Hubble space telescope that began on June 13 and caused the suspension of scientific observations. At the same time as the investigation, NASA is looking at indirect ways to activate the backup hardware
NASA is working to solve a problem with the Hubble Space Telescope's computer. The computer stopped working on Sunday, June 13, shortly after 16:00 p.m. (23:00 p.m. Israel time). This is already the second malfunction of the aging telescope this year
This galactic cluster boasts a variety of directions, with spiral galaxies like the one in the center of this image that are almost visible from above, and some spiral galaxies that are only visible as thin slices of light when viewed from the side. This is in addition
The galaxy cluster has so much mass that it acts as a gravitational lens, causing light from more distant galaxies to bend around it. These distortions may appear in many different forms, such as long lines
Gaseous swirls of hydrogen, sulfur and hydrocarbons cradle a collection of baby stars in this composite image of the Orio Nebula as seen by the Hubble Space Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope
In 2018, a galaxy with a low amount of dark matter was observed. The galaxy contradicted all the existing models but it turns out that the celebration came earlier than expected and two years later it was announced that the tidal forces shed the material
"Understanding the nature of the vast halos of gas surrounding galaxies is extremely important," explained co-researcher Samantha Barak of Yale University. "This reservoir of gas will serve as fuel for future star formation within the galaxy. It is
