    New Hubble Pictures

    Astronomy: glorious pictures from the NASA Hubble space telescope, galaxy ngc1977

    A beautiful new image of two colliding galaxies has been released by NASA's Great Observatories. The Antennae galaxies, located about 62 million light-years from Earth, are shown in this composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold and brown), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red).

    If the Hubble telescope is able to capture this many stars in a small portion of the universe, how can we possibly be so arrogant to think that we are alone?

    Hubble Picture - Starry Night, so named because it reminded astronomers of the Van Gogh painting. It is a halo of light around a star in the Milky Way

    This is an artist’s impression of supernova 1993J, which exploded in the galaxy M81. Using the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have identified the blue helium-burning companion star, seen at the center of the expanding nebula of debris from the supernova.

    This long-exposure image taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope includes some of the earliest galaxies ever detected.

    The Einstein Rings. The Hubble Space Telescope revealed a never-before-seen optical alignment in space. The pattern caused by the bending of light from 2 distant galaxies strung directly behind a forground massive galaxy, like 3 beads on a string.

    How massive can a star be? Estimates made from distance, brightness and standard solar models had given one star in the open cluster Pismis 24 over 200 times the mass of our Sun, making it a record holder. This star is the brightest object located just to the right of the gas front in the above image. Close inspection of images taken recently with the Hubble Space Telescope, however, have shown that Pismis 24-1 derives its brilliant luminosity not from a single star but from three at least.
