Hubble Space Telescope
Hubble Space Telescope News
NASA is planning to team up with Elon Musk's SpaceX and use their Dragon spacecraft in order to boost the Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble Telescope has been in service for over 30 years, but has dropped about 30 kilometres since 2009.
While it may seem that black holes are by definition invisible, they can still be detected through the way they interact with other objects owing to their strong gravity
After $10 billion and years of delays, the telescope is finally scheduled to lift off from a European launch site in French Guiana on its way to a point 1 million miles on the other side of the moon
NASA said the payload computer stopped working last Sunday and attempts to restart it have failed.
Unencumbered by the clouds, Hubble and by extension, scientists have a clear view of the universe and all it has to offer.
AG Carinae is a few million years old and has been existing some 20,000 light-years away inside the Milky Way.
This isn’t the first time that the telescope has been put in safe mode as some technical glitch in 2018 forced the agencies to do the same.
Located in the constellation of Virgo, the NGC 4535 galaxy is around 50-million light-years away from Earth.
Stunning 'eye of the serpent' spotted by Hubble in spiral arms of a galaxy in the Hydra constellation
Only half of all the known spiral galaxies have a central bar-like structure, including NGC 2835 and our Milky Way galaxy.
The discovery, some experts think, might 'signal a gap' in the current understanding of dark matter and its properties.
The star, 20 times larger than our Sun, went supernova between 10,000 and 20,000 years ago, and its shockwave is still expanding at a rate of around 350 kilometers per second, the space agency said
The mystery has enthralled skywatchers since the star began to lose brightness, and fast, in October 2019.
The cluster of stars itself is located in the Carina region of our galaxy, about 8000 light-years away.
Stars that reside in the centre of a cluster would have lesser chances of forming planets while the chances of planet formation are higher in the outer layers.
People will be able to see inner regions of faraway galaxies, close ups of planets, nebulas, the nuclei of comets and more with this feature.
NASA renames its next-generation space telescope — WFIRST — after ‘Mother of Hubble’ Nancy Grace Roman
She is credited for the Hubble Space Telescope and convinced NASA and the US Congress launching the world's most powerful space telescope was a priority
The comet was discovered on 29 December last year by the ATLAS robotic astronomical survey system.
Hubble has been placed in space to observe the most distant stars and galaxies, as well as planets in our solar system.
Hubble is the first major optical telescope to be placed in space and has an unobstructed view of the universe.
Black holes are extreme environments and are a testing ground for the laws of physics and our understanding of how the Universe works.
