Hubble Space Telescope

For more than quarter of a century the Hubble Space Telescope has been taking incredible images of deep space and opening our eyes to new wonders of the universe. The space telescope had a bumpy start when one of its mirrors meant pictures were out of focus, but in 1993 the problem was solved and Hubble continues to take breath-taking photos and will do for decades to come. A fitting tribute to Edwin Hubble, one of the most important cosmologists of the 20th Century.
