Arrested Development: Hubble Finds Relic Galaxy Close to Home

Astronomers have put NASA's Hubble Space Telescope on an Indiana Jones-type quest to uncover an ancient "relic galaxy" in our own cosmic backyard.

Hubble's Galaxy Full of Cosmic Lighthouses

Light from star-studded galaxy NGC 3972 left it just when the dinosaurs became extinct.

Astrophysics Science Division at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA Goddard’s Astrophysics Science Division (ASD) is home to a vibrant community of scientists, technologists, and support staff dedicated to enabling NASA’s over-arching goals in astrophysics.

Hubble Finds Huge System of Dusty Material Enveloping the Young Star HR 4796A

Hubble helped uncover a vast, complex dust structure, about 150 billion miles across, enveloping the young star HR 4796A.

Hubble's Frenzy of Stars

IC 4710 is an undeniably spectacular sight. The galaxy is a busy cloud of bright stars, with bright pockets - marking bursts of new star formation - scattered around its edges.

NASA Finds a Large Amount of Water in an Exoplanet's Atmosphere

Scientists used NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes to find the "fingerprints" of water in the atmosphere of a hot, bloated, Saturn-mass exoplanet some 700 light-years away.

Hubble Finds the Calm after the Galactic Storm

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope caught sight of a soft, diffuse-looking galaxy that is probably the aftermath of a long-ago galactic collision.

Improved Hubble Yardstick Gives Fresh Evidence for New Physics in the Universe

The most precise measurements of the expansion rate of the universe are forcing astronomers to consider something unexpected at work in the universe.

Hubble's Window into the Cosmic Past

This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the galaxy cluster PLCK G004.5-19.5.

NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite Arrives at Kennedy Space Center for Launch

NASA’s next planet-hunting mission has arrived in Florida to begin preparations for launch.

Hubble Sees Neptune's Mysterious Shrinking Storm

For the first time, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured time-lapse images of a large, dark storm on Neptune shrinking out of existence.

Hubble’s Lonely Firework Display

Roughly 50 million light-years away the little galaxy NGC 1559 has hosted a variety of spectacular exploding stars called supernovae.

New Clues to TRAPPIST-1 Planet Compositions, Atmospheres

The seven Earth-size planets of TRAPPIST-1 are all mostly made of rock, with some having the potential to hold more water than Earth, according to a new study.

Hubble’s Majestic Spiral in Pegasus

This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows a spiral galaxy known as NGC 7331.

The Penguin and the Egg

This image of distant interacting galaxies, known collectively as Arp 142, bears an uncanny resemblance to a penguin guarding an egg.

Celebrating 60 Years of Groundbreaking U.S. Space Science

Sixty years ago, the U.S. launched Explorer 1, rocketing into the Space Age.

Hubble's Standout Stars Bound Together by Gravity

Globular cluster named NGC 3201 — a gathering of hundreds of thousands of stars bound together by gravity — was discovered in 1826 by the Scottish astronomer James Dunlop.

Explorer 1: The Beginning of American Space Science

Sixty years ago, the hopes of Cold War America soared into the night sky as a rocket lofted skyward above Cape Canaveral, a soon-to-be-famous barrier island off the Florida coast.

Hubble’s Cartwheel

This is an image of the Cartwheel Galaxy taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble Weighs in on Mass of Three Million Billion Suns

Galaxy cluster ACT-CLJ0102-4915, or “El Gordo” contains the mass of a staggering three million billion suns.

Hubble Yields New Discoveries at the Winter AAS Meeting

The new science discoveries with the Earth-orbiting observatory stretch from nearby star forming regions, to the heart of our Milky Way galaxy, to the horizon of the observable universe.

Hubble Finds Substellar Objects in the Orion Nebula

Astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered the largest known population of brown dwarfs sprinkled among newborn stars in the Orion Nebula.

No Planets Needed: NASA Study Shows Disk Patterns Can Self-Generate

A new NASA study shows rings, arcs and spirals in disks around stars may not be caused by planets. They may self-generate.

Hubble’s Barred and Booming Spiral Galaxy

UGC 6093 is something known as a barred spiral galaxy — it has beautiful arms that swirl outwards from a bar slicing through the galaxy’s center.

Hubble's Holiday Nebula “Ornament”

The Hubble Space Telescope captured what looks like a colorful holiday ornament in space. It's actually an image of NGC 6326, a planetary nebula with glowing wisps of outpouring gas.
