Photo Release : A Dazzling Hubble Collection of Supernova Host Galaxies
19 mai
Spanning from 2003 to 2021, this collection of images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope features galaxies that are all hosts to both Cepheid variables and supernovae. These two celestial phenomena are both crucial tools used by astronomers to determine astronomical distance, and have (...)
Photo Release : Global Citizen Science Project Finds Over 1700 Asteroid Trails in Hubble Images
6 mai
Combining artificial intelligence with many keen human eyes, astronomers have found 1701 new asteroid trails in archival data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, consisting of more than 37 000 images that span two decades. The project reflects both Hubble’s value to scientists as an (...)
Science Release : Hubble observations used to answer key exoplanet questions
25 avril
Archival observations of 25 hot Jupiters by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have been analysed by an international team of astronomers, enabling them to answer five open questions important to our understanding of exoplanet atmospheres. Amongst other findings, the team found that the (...)
Photo Release : Celebrating Hubble’s 32nd Birthday with a Galaxy Grouping
19 avril
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope is celebrating its 32nd birthday with a stunning look at an unusual close-knit collection of five galaxies, called the Hickson Compact Group 40. This snapshot reflects a special moment in their lifetimes as they fall together before they (...)
Science Release : Astronomers Detect Supermassive Black Hole Precursor Lurking in Archival Hubble Data
13 avril
An international team of astronomers using archival data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and other space- and ground-based observatories have discovered a unique object in the distant, early Universe that is a crucial link between star-forming galaxies and the emergence of the earliest (...)
Science Release : A Record Broken : Hubble Finds the Most Distant Star Ever Seen
30 mars
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has established an extraordinary new benchmark : detecting the light of a star that existed within the first billion years after the Universe’s birth in the Big Bang (at a redshift of 6.2) — the most distant individual star ever seen. This sets up a major (...)
Organisation Release : Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys Celebrates 20 Years of Discovery
7 mars
Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) aboard the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. On 7 March 2002 astronauts installed the ACS during Hubble Servicing Mission 3B, also known as STS-109. With its wide field of view, sharp image quality, and high sensitivity, (...)
Photo Release : Hubble Looks at a ‘Space Triangle’ Spawned by a Galaxy Collision
22 février
A spectacular head-on collision between two galaxies, known as Arp 143, has fueled the unusual triangular-shaped star-formation frenzy as captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
Photo Release : Hubble Takes a Grand Tour of the Solar System
Novembre 2021
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has made its stunning yearly observations of the Solar System’s giant planets, to reveal atmospheric changes.
Photo Release : Hubble Celebrates Halloween With A Glowering Carbon Star
Octobre 2021
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope celebrates Halloween this year with a striking observation of the carbon star CW Leonis, which resembles a baleful orange eye glaring from behind a shroud of smoke.
