NASA fixes Hubble telescope the old-fashioned way — flip a switch

After the Hubble Space Telescope was put into safe mode due to a gyro failure on October 5, the one remaining gyroscope kept as a spare didn't work as expected, so there were some tense moments as NASA engineers turned to some unusual maneuvers.

Hubble telescope captures extraterrestrial smiley

Forget about nasty bug-eyed monsters, the universe is sending us a smiley instead. NASA's Hubble telescope has captured an image of two galaxies which have created a huge smiling face beaming down on us from the distant reaches of space.

Hubble telescope's high def images of iconic Pillars of Creation

Greenbelt - After a stuttering start before repairs to an out-of-focus lens enabled astronomers to realise the Hubble Space Telescope’s full potential, Hubble has returned a multitude of spectacular images, allowing us to see the Universe as never before seen.

NASA discovers tiny galaxy some 13 billion lightyears from Earth

Pasadena - With the help of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered one of the farthest and smallest galaxies ever seen.

Scientists find subtle signals of water on five hot Jupiters

Two teams of NASA scientists have discovered faint traces of water signatures in the atmospheres of five hot Jupiters while scanning the skies through the Hubble Space Telescope. The five exoplanets orbit stars located in the neighborhood of our galaxy.

New 'Zombie Planet' images shock scientists

New images from the Hubble Space Telescope have captured a surprising development in the "zombie planet" orbiting the Fomalhaut star.

Astronomers confirm existence of distant 'water-world'

Astronomers have announced discovery of a new type of exoplanet they describe as a "steamy waterworld," that is, a world with an atmosphere consisting primarily of steamy water. Astronomers say the planet is a new type previously unknown to science.

Hubble captures bubble-blowing galaxy

New NASA/ESA Hubble space telescope images of Holmberg II, a dwarf irregular galaxy, have revealed its blurry boundaries have been pocked by giant bubbles of glowing gas, where star-birth blew away dust and gas, and supernova shocks cleared out cavities.

Hubble telescope captures stunning image of galaxy side view

Houston - The picture of a thin galaxy located near the Virgo cluster, a set of approximately 2000 galaxies about 60 million light years away, shows one of the most precise alignments known of the universe. The picture was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble captures pictures of bizarre X-shaped object

Washington - NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured the first snapshots of a suspected asteroid collision - the images show a bizarre X-shaped object at the head of a comet-like trail of material.

Astronauts Make Repairs on Hubble Telescope

The Shuttle Atlantis and its crew of astronauts have ended the first day of their mission in space, repairing and adjusting gears to insure that the Hubble Space Telescope can make higher resolution photographs.

Decision Soon on Hubble Repair Mission

Should we give up on our "Eye in the Sky?", even tho we have other more powerful telecopes on the horizon I think Nasa should go ahead and repair it... We could always use the ailing Hubble for research in our solar system and nearby areas of space.

These images by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope reveal how different the iconic Pillars of Creation appear in visible and in near-infrared light. In the visible-light image at left, astronomers combined several exposures to show a wider view of the pillars and the surrounding region. The towering pillars are about 5 light-years tall. The tenuous-looking base of the columns is shown. The near-infrared image at right transforms the pillars into eerie, wispy silhouettes, which are seen against a back
