The Legendary Hubble Telescope: Some of My Favorite Images of Our Wondrous Universe

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched in 1990 by NASA , the European Space Agency, & the Space Telescope Science Institute. The telescope was named after astronomer Edwin Hubble. The telescope has captured some of the most breathtaking, clear, memorable, and detailed images of our viewable/known Universe. Hubble has an extensive portfolio which includes beautiful high definition images of stars, galaxies, and nebulae. The Hubble has helped to determine the rate of expansion of the Universe along with many other astrophysical discoveries. Here are some of my favorite images captured by Hubble, which is still in service and active presently. These images help us examine and reflect on our Universe in a variety of ways…it’s diversity, the massive expanding size & formation, and endless possibilities that are far more than science fiction. The creations that were captured by the Hubble telescope are not man-made or invented by technology…they are real, natural, extraordinary and absolutely phenomenal.
