Hubble Study


My next small study goes up on Every Day Original tomorrow morning!

Since it's launch in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has produced some of our most spectacular images of the universe. Hubble's observations narrowed our knowledge of the age of the universe to a decimal point of accuracy (13.7 billion years instead of 10-20 billion). In 1995, the spirit of discovery led the Hubble team to point the telescope at the darkest patch of sky they could find to see if there was anything there. In a patch of sky the size of a pinhead at arms length, the Hubble Deep Field observation revealed 3,000 galaxies stretched out to distances of up to 13 billion lightyears. It was our first nearly complete view of the entire history of the universe in one image. Check out this video about it.

The HST is nearing the end of it's life. While there are many space telescopes that preform many functions, Hubble's successor, the James Webb Space Telescope is set to launch just next year!
