Hubble Peers at Peculiar Galactic Pair

This image taken using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) shows Arp 107, a celestial object that includes a pair of galaxies in the midst of a collision.

NASA’s Webb Finds Carbon Source on Surface of Jupiter’s Moon Europa

Astronomers using data from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope have identified carbon dioxide in a specific region on the icy surface of Jupiters moon Europa.

Hubble Spots a Dreamy Galaxy

This dream-like image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope features the galaxy known as NGC 3156.

NASA’s Webb Snaps Supersonic Outflow of Young Star

This image of HH 211 from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope reveals an outflow from a Class 0 protostar, an infantile analog of our Sun when it was no more than a few tens of thousands of years old and with a mass only 8% of the present-day Sun (it will eventually grow into a star like the Sun).

Primary Instrument for NASA’s Roman Completed, Begins Tests

A team of engineers and technicians at Ball Aerospace and NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center have finished assembling the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope's giant camera.

Webb Discovers Methane, Carbon Dioxide in Atmosphere of K2-18 b

A new investigation with NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope into K2-18 b, an exoplanet 8.6 times as massive as Earth, has revealed the presence of carbon-bearing molecules including methane and carbon dioxide.

Hubble Images a Swirling Supernova Site

The swirls of the galaxy IC 1776 stand in splendid isolation in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Sees Glittering Globular Cluster Embedded Inside Our Milky Way

Hubble's colorful image of the globular star cluster Terzan 12 is a spectacular example of how dust in space affects starlight coming from background objects.

Hubble Views a Sphere of Stars

This huge ball of stars – around 100 billion in total – is an elliptical galaxy located some 55 million light-years away.

Webb Reveals New Structures Within Iconic Supernova

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has begun the study of one of the most renowned supernovae, SN 1987A (Supernova 1987A). Located 168,000 light-years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud, SN 1987A has been a target of intense observations at wavelengths ranging from gamma rays to radio for nearly 40 years, since its discovery in February of 1987.

Hubble Sees a Sparkling Neighbor Galaxy

The galaxy ESO 300-16 looms over this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA Begins Integrating ‘Nervous System’ for Roman Space Telescope

NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope team has begun integrating and testing the spacecraft’s electrical cabling, or harness, which enables different parts of the observatory to communicate with one another. Additionally, the harness provides power and helps the central computer monitor the observatory’s function via an array of sensors.

Hubble Captures Cosmic Cluster

The massive cluster Abell 3322 is featured in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, in which the galaxy 2MASX J05101744-4519179 basks in the center.

Neptune's Disappearing Clouds Linked to the Solar Cycle

Astronomers have uncovered a link between Neptune's shifting cloud abundance and the 11-year solar cycle, in which the waxing and waning of the Sun's entangled magnetic fields drives solar activity.

Hubble Sees Galaxy in a Ghostly Haze

The lenticular galaxy NGC 6684 bathes this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope in a pale light.

NASA Software Catalog Offers Free Programs for Earth Science, More

Each year, NASA scientists, engineers, and developers create software packages to manage space missions, test spacecraft, and analyze the petabytes of data produced by agency research satellites. As the agency innovates for the benefit of humanity, many of these programs are now downloadable and free of charge through NASA’s Software Catalog.

Webb Reveals Colors of Earendel, Most Distant Star Ever Detected

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has followed up on observations by the Hubble Space Telescope of the farthest star ever detected in the very distant universe, within the first billion years after the big bang.

Hubble Glimpses a Glitzy Galactic Cluster

The glittering, glitzy contents of the globular cluster NGC 6652 sparkle in this star-studded image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Webb Spotlights Gravitational Arcs in ‘El Gordo’ Galaxy Cluster

A new image of the galaxy cluster known as “El Gordo” is revealing distant and dusty objects never seen before, and providing a bounty of fresh science. The infrared image, taken by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, displays a variety of unusual, distorted background galaxies that were only hinted at in previous Hubble Space Telescope images.

Hubble Peers at a Tranquil Galaxy

The tranquil spiral galaxy UGC 12295 basks leisurely in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Sees Evaporating Planet Getting the Hiccups

A young planet whirling around a petulant red dwarf star is changing in unpredictable ways orbit-by-orbit.

Webb Snaps Highly Detailed Infrared Image of Actively Forming Stars

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has captured the “antics” of a pair of actively forming young stars, known as Herbig-Haro 46/47, in high-resolution near-infrared light.

Webb Detects Water Vapor in Rocky Planet-Forming Zone

New measurements by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope’s MIRI (Mid-Infrared Instrument) have detected water vapor in the system’s inner disk, at distances of less than 100 million miles (160 million kilometers) from the star – the region where rocky, terrestrial planets may be forming. (The Earth orbits 93 million miles from our Sun.)

Hubble Images a Starstruck Galaxy

The irregular galaxy Arp 263 lurks in the background of this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, but the view is dominated by a stellar photobomber.

Hubble Sees Boulders Escaping from Asteroid Dimorphos

Astronomers using Hubble's extraordinary sensitivity have discovered a swarm of boulders that were possibly shaken off the asteroid when NASA deliberately slammed the half-ton DART impactor spacecraft into Dimorphos at approximately 14,000 miles per hour.
