2010 Spectacular Images by Hubble Space Telescope


Thanks to the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, scientists can look thousands of years into the future and calculate how the stars will move more than the next thousands of years. The Hubble Space Telescope, launched in 1990 and operated by the Space Telescope Science Institute, is one of NASA’s Wonderful Observatories. It has captured several spectacular images of stars, galaxies, and clouds.


The Antennae galaxies or NGC 4038/NGC 4039 or Caldwell 60/61 are shown in this composite image from the Spitzer Space Telescope (red), the Hubble Space Telescope (brown and gold), and the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue).


The image shows a collision in between two galaxies.

Chaotic activity atop a 3-light-year pillar can be observed clearly in this image. The pillar which is located 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina is getting eaten away by the brilliant light.


Abell 1689 is an immense cluster of galaxies in the constellation Virgo. In the image is its inner area. The imaging data was taken eight years ago with Hubble’s Sophisticated Camera for Surveys.


The spiral galaxy, NGC 4911, in the image is situated deep within the Coma Cluster of galaxies. The galaxy consists of wealthy lanes of gas and dust close to its center.


In this photo, clouds of interstellar gas and dust are beleaguering a glittering collection of stars. This nebula consists of enormous, hot stars called NGC 3603 which is known to harbour a blue supergiant star known as Sher 25.


Bizarre, fantasy-like structures are made of radiation from massive stars and cold molecular clouds in the cold vacuum of space. This image is a composite of 2005 observations and 2010 observations.


  NGC 3982, intermediate spiral galaxy nearly 68 million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Key, is striking for its wealthy tapestry of star birth and winding arms.
