Using the world’s largest telescope, Edwin Hubble showed that the distant galaxies all appeared to be receding from us at speeds proportional to their distances. Georges Lemaître used these findings to explain the relationship between the distance of a galaxy and the recession velocity of that same galaxy. By putting together Hubble’s observations with Lemaître’s paper, a majority of astronomers became convinced that the universe was indeed expanding. This revolutionized the study of…

Астрономы, работающие с Хабблом, создали самый «глубокий» снимок Вселенной. Это изображение составлено из более чем 2000 отдельных снимков, снимались они целых 23 дня. Здесь можно различить более 5500 галактик, на переднем плане видны лишь отдельные звезды нашей галактики.

The Hubble Extreme Deep Field, a combination of separate exposures by the orbiting observatory for a total of over two million seconds, or 23 days. Nearly every single object is a galaxy, a vast collection of billions of stars.

Brown dwarfs are not quite massive enough to ignite nuclear fusion, yet larger than known planets. <a href="http://www.space.com/24467-brown-dwarfs-failed-stars-explained-infographic.html">See how brown dwarfs work in this SPACE.com infographic</a>.

Brown dwarfs started out the same as ordinary stars, collapsing from giant nebulas of dust and gas. Most brown dwarfs are not quite massive enough to sustain a nuclear fusion reaction at their cores

NASA's Cassini spacecraft took these stunning photos of Saturn and its moons from orbit.
