Twenty years after the iconic photo was taken, The Hubble returns for a high-def shot.WOAH.

Stunning new picture of the Pillars of Creation

The Pillars of Creation, from a Hubble Image January This is in the Eagle Nebula, light years from Earth. These are clouds of interstellar gas and dust that continue to create new stars.

The “Black Widow” pulsar is moving through the galaxy at a speed of almost a million kilometers per hour. A bow shock wave due to this motion is visible to optical telescopes, shown in this image as the greenish crescent shape. The pressure behind the bow shock creates a second shock wave that sweeps the cloud of high-energy particles back from the pulsar to form the cocoon.

Uranus as seen by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope in 2005

This image from the Hubble Space Telescope clearly shows the equatorial rings of Uranus, a southern cloud deck and a bright cloud in the northern hemisphere. Uranus is unique in that its axis is tilted to align with the solar system elliptic plane.

Horsehead Nebula | The Horsehead Nebula is a cloud of ionized-hydrogen in the constellation Orion. These clouds are lit from within by young, hot stars. The interstellar dust absorbs the light from part of the ionized cloud creating this beautiful contrast.

Meteorite May Harbor Evidence of Mars Life: Study | Take a Quick Break

I don't usually pin art, but I love this MIRROR REFLECTION of purple and black worlds of the Universe, with a black planet in the center.

Backlit Saturn - Seen from the Cassini SpacecraftThe Cassini spacecraft was sent by NASA and ESA to study Saturn and its moons. Two of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus and Tethys, appear in the bottom right of this image. So far, the spacecraft has found new storm systems on Saturn, active geysers on its moon Enceladus, liquid oceans on its moon Titan, and many other unexpected discoveries. A
