NASA's Webb Will Use Quasars to Unlock the Secrets of the Early Universe

Shortly after its launch later this year, a team of scientists will train NASA's James Webb Space Telescope on six of the most distant and luminous quasars. They will study the properties of these quasars and their host galaxies, and how they are interconnected during the first stages of galaxy evolution in the very early universe.

Hubble Peers at a Galaxy with a Hidden Secret

This image shows the spiral galaxy NGC 3254, observed using Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3).

Mystery of Galaxy's Missing Dark Matter Deepens

When astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope uncovered an oddball galaxy that looked like it didn't have much dark matter, some thought the finding was hard to believe and looked for a simpler explanation.

Operations Underway to Restore Payload Computer on NASA's Hubble Space Telescope

NASA is working to resolve an issue with the payload computer on the Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Sees a Spiral in Good Company

Citizen Scientists Discover Two Gaseous Planets around a Bright Sun-like Star

At night, seven-year-old Miguel likes talking to his father Cesar Rubio about planets and stars. "I try to nurture that," says Rubio, a machinist in Pomona, California, who makes parts for mining and power generation equipment.

NASA's Roman Space Telescope Selects 24 Flight-Quality Heat-Vision 'Eyes'

NASA's Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope team recently approved all 24 of the detectors the mission needs. These devices will convert starlight into electrical signals, which will then be decoded into 300-megapixel images of large patches of the sky.

Hubble Images a Galaxy in Dazzling Detail

This image features the spiral galaxy NGC 691, imaged in fantastic detail using Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3).

Hubble Captures a Captivating Spiral
