40 Best Hubble telescope Pictures Of Space

Have you ever heard of Hubble Space Telescope (HST)? If yes then kudos but if you haven’t you can have the whole idea from this article. This telescope was invented in1990, and from then, it has gave us some set of amazing and beautiful images that inspired many people to know and learn about space. Here you will know about the full telescope in details and will get to see some of the best telescope pictures of space. So don’t miss out this article as it you are going to have some beautiful experience on this topic.
If you turn to the history of space, you may know that Galileo once faced a great problem in drawing the rings of the Saturn, just because of the proper telescope, which is, know easily available. But as day by day the science started developing itself, it came up with great advancement of optics, which resulted in a clear view of all the astronomical objects. But the atmosphere of the earth blocked a lot of light when a telescope is placed on the ground. But later it was discovered that when a telescope is placed on high altitudes like mountains, it gives more clear pictures.

Best Hubble telescope Pictures Of Space

The star cluster Pismis 24 lies in the core of the large emission nebula NGC 6357 that extends one degree on the sky in the direction of the Scorpius constellation. Part of the nebula is ionised by the youngest (bluest) heavy stars in Pismis 24. The intense ultraviolet radiation from the blazing stars heats the gas surrounding the cluster and creates a bubble in NGC 6357. The presence of these surrounding gas clouds makes probing into the region even harder. One of the top candidates for the title of "Milky Way stellar heavyweight champion" was, until now, Pismis 24-1, a bright young star that lies in the core of the small open star cluster Pismis 24 (the bright stars in the Hubble image) about 8,000 light-years away from Earth. Pismis 24-1 was thought to have an incredibly large mass of 200 to 300 solar masses. New NASA/ESA Hubble measurements of the star, have, however, resolved Pismis 24-1 into two separate stars, and, in doing so, have "halved" its mass to around 100 solar masses.

It was the year 1323, when a German scientist named Hermann Oberth suggested for the first time that a telescope could be launched into the orbit to overcome all the problems caused by the atmosphere in viewing space images. But everything happened in the year 1969, and the approval of launching large telescope was given. In the year 1975, the European Space agency started working with NASA about the matter. Funding was approved in 1977 and the work started. The large space telescope was developed and it was named Hubble Space Telescope in the honor of Edwin Hubble. April 24, 1990 was the day when the telescope was launched into space.

But the luck was bad and mishap happened. Hubble telescope had a flawed mirror and from that, researchers learned that when the telescope reached the orbit and was put to work, the image was fuzzy and useless. Actually, the mirror of the Hubble telescope had a defect and it was due to a manufacturing defect. But to go for a repair mission, NASA took three years. And after that and in 1993, the first proper images of space came to earth from Hubble. Though after that Hubble telescope was repaired for five times with last one in 2009. Launch of a new telescope is being planned in 2018 by NASA, which is named James Webb Telescope.
So you know about the history of HST, but actually it is truly famous among the astronomy world because it has helped a lot in the work of space science since then it was launched. No one can ever forget about the contribution of this telescope. But if you have a look into the images sent from this telescope, you will get amazed. They are truly abstract to us and we can’t even think about that.

This composite image combines the deepest X-ray image ever taken with optical and infrared data from Hubble.  Astronomers obtained what is known as the Chandra Deep Field South by pointing the Chandra telescope at the same patch of sky for over six weeks of time. The Chandra sources of this small section of the CDFS are shown in blue. Two "stacked" images, which represent a technique used to find the most distant galaxies in X-ray light, are on the right. The results from this dataset include that black holes are found to be actively growing between 800 million and 950 million years after the Big Bang.

Here we made a collection of some imaged that are sent to the earth by the Hubble Telescope and they are so thrilling that one can ever forget. In other words, if anyone even don’t know about the space or don’t have any interest to learn about it, they will also love the images because of it artistic formations. Though the images are not drawn by anyone, but still they are so artistic. If you have really enjoyed our collection of Hubble telescope pictures of space, please don’t forget to share that with your friends.

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has revisited one of its most iconic and popular images: the Eagle Nebula’s Pillars of Creation. This image shows the pillars as seen in visible light, capturing the multi-coloured glow of gas clouds, wispy tendrils of dark cosmic dust, and the rust-coloured elephants’ trunks of the nebula’s famous pillars. The dust and gas in the pillars is seared by the intense radiation from young stars and eroded by strong winds from massive nearby stars. With these new images comes better contrast and a clearer view for astronomers to study how the structure of the pillars is changing over time.

Floating at the centre of this new Hubble image is a lidless purple eye, staring back at us through space. This ethereal object, known officially as [SBW2007] 1 but sometimes nicknamed SBW1, is a nebula with a giant star at its centre. The star was originally twenty times more massive than our Sun, and is now encased in a swirling ring of purple gas, the remains of the distant era when it cast off its outer layers via violent pulsations and winds. But the star is not just any star; scientists say that it is destined to go supernova! 26 years ago, another star with striking similarities went supernova — SN 1987A. Early Hubble images of SN 1987A show eerie similarities to SBW1. Both stars had identical rings of the same size and age, which were travelling at similar speeds; both were located in similar HII regions; and they had the same brightness. In this way SBW1 is a snapshot of SN1987a's appearance before it exploded, and unsurprisingly, astronomers love studying them together. At a distance of more than 20 000 light-years it will be safe to watch when the supernova goes off. If we are very lucky it may happen in our own lifetimes... A version of this image was entered into the Hubble's Hidden Treasures image processing competition by contestant Nick Rose.
