Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope discovered evidence of water vapor in the atmosphere of Jupiter's moon Ganymede.
Hubble's first new photos show two colliding galaxies and one long galactic spiral. The telescope is also observing star clusters and Jupiter auroras.
Hubble is the world's most powerful space telescope. It has enabled astronomers to peer into the earliest ages of the universe.
Hubble has been conducting revolutionary science for 30 years, but its age is starting to catch up to it. For now, NASA can use backup hardware.
Engineers have been troubleshooting NASA's Hubble Telescope since it went offline a month ago. They think they've finally identified the problem.
Engineers have been troubleshooting NASA's Hubble Telescope since it went offline in mid-June. Now, they're going to try switching to backup hardware.
Hubble has been offline for 12 days. NASA's Hubble team is starting to think this may not be an error on the telescope's payload computer after all.
Hubble engineers thought the issue was an old memory module. But that was just a symptom of the real problem - which NASA still hasn't identified.
Hubble is hibernating to protect its scientific instruments while NASA troubleshoots the computer that controls them.
Two telescopes worked together to capture jaw-dropping images of Jupiter through different types of light.
Our protective shield might soon go into a transformation that could threaten all the lives on Earth.
NASA’s final “Image of the Day” for 2020 depicts the Orion Nebula, located 1,500 light-years from Earth. The Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes captured the stunning, colourful image. Nebulae are giant clouds of gas and dust where new stars are born. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories. NASA decided […]
A team of astronomers used the Hubble Space Telescope to capture images of a nebula dimming quickly over just 20 years. One researcher called the rapid fading “very, very dramatic, and very weird.” Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories. Astronomers often study changes that take place over vast stretches […]
The supernova explosion of a massive dying star was so bright that ancient humans would have seen it from Earth about 15,000 years ago. The supernova’s blast wave continues to scream through space, heating and compressing dust and gas in a way that causes them to glow in a web […]
A spiral galaxy nicknamed “Eye of the Serpent” is 35 million light-years from Earth. The Hubble Space Telescope recently snapped a photo of the galaxy, which is about half the width of the Milky Way and has a supermassive black hole at its centre. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more […]
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope recently photographed a fluffy-looking galaxy 67 million light-years away. The galaxy’s centre is quiet, since early star formation used up all its gas long ago. Two upcoming NASA telescopes will succeed Hubble and capture our own galaxy and the universe beyond in unprecedented detail. Visit Business […]
NASA just named its next “great observatory” after Dr. Nancy Grace Roman, the space agency’s first chief astronomer and woman executive. Roman earned the nickname “mother of Hubble” for pioneering the concepts behind the Hubble Space Telescope – the first of NASA’s great space-based observatories. The Nancy Grace Roman Space […]
