The most comprehensive view yet of the evolution of the Universe. Hubble Space Telescope observations in the ultraviolet have been added to the existing observations of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. So the youngest and hottest stars - absent from the original - are now included. (Image Credit: NASA, ESA, H. Teplitz and M. Rafelski (IPAC/Caltech), A. Koekemoer (STScI), R.

Quadruple Saturn Moon Transit

This photo from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope shows a quadruple Saturn moon transit. The image was snapped by Hubble on February 29, 2009. The unique alignment seen in this photo gave astronomers an opportunity to capture a 'parade of celestial bodies' crossing Saturn's face. The largest body is the giant moon Titan, which is bigger than the planet Mercury. Several much smaller icy moons line up along the upper edge of the rings. vintagraph.com

In pictures: Top 20 Hubble Space Telescope images

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?

This image of a pair of interacting galaxies called Arp 273 was released to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The distorted shape of the larger of the two galaxies shows signs of tidal interactions with the smaller of the two. It is thought that the smaller galaxy has actually passed through the larger one.

LOOK: Vast Star Cluster Shines In High-Res Hubble Telescope Image

Hubble's Messier 9 Globular Cluster Photo-shows hundreds of thousands of glittering stars shine in a cluster at the center of our galaxy in a new photograph from the Hubble Space Telescope.

New Telescope to Take First-Ever Black Hole Photo - A group of astronomers are meeting this week to plan out an ambitious and unprecedented project — capturing the first-ever image of a black hole. The researchers want to create an Earth-size virtual instrument called the Event Horizon Telescope, a worldwide network of radio telescopes powerful enough to snap a picture of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy.

Omega Centauri Telescópio Hubble mostra panorama com cerca de 100 mil estrelas no congestionado núcelo do aglomerado de Omega Centauri.

Largest water reservoir discovered in black hole. The reservoir holds as much as 140 trillion oceans, or more than 4,000 times more than exists in the entire Milky Way. It exists as vapour spread across hundreds of light years. While water has been found across much of the universe previously, this is interesting because of the fact this reservoir is 12 billion light years away, meaning that this water existed when the universe was only 1.6 billion years old.

The Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy, taken by the Hubble Telescope

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).
