As we approach the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope launching into space, we will be taking time to recognize the man who the famous telescope is named after: Edwin Hubble. 

Edwin Hubble is most widely known for being the astronomer that observed and detected the cepheid variable inside M31 The Great Nebula in Andromeda (now known as the Andromeda Galaxy), which was the evidence needed to show that the Universe we reside in is not a static one, but was expanding. 

These observations were made at the Mount Wilson Observatory in the 1920s and heralded a new way for humanity to understand the Universe. 

Please join +Tony Darnell, Dr.+Carol Christian and +Scott Lewis, who will be on location at the Carnegie Observatories office in Pasadena Calfornia, with Dr. John Mulchaey the acting director of the Carnegie Observatories as well as Nicholas (Nik) Arkimovich, a senior docent at the Mount Wilson Observatory. Together, they will bring fascinating insights into who Edwin Hubble was, as well as his remarkable achievements in astronomy.

New #Hubble25 Video!

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is one of the most powerful scientific instruments ever conceived. Hubble’s most important discoveries have provided answers to questions that astronomers did not yet know how to ask, and found objects that were not yet imagined. This installment of the "Hubble at 25" series looks at how Hubble far exceeds its original science goals and unveiled an even more complex and mysterious universe than once envisioned.

A well-known maxim in the media states that "if it bleeds, it leads." Such viewpoints make it all the more surprising that a scientific instrument, the Hubble Space Telescope, has garnered such high-profile, long-lasting, and positive attention across a wide swath of public journalism. Ray Villard has been the head of the Hubble news team at STScI since before its launch, 25 years ago this month. His experience dealing with the complete swath of Hubble's history, science, problems, and triumphs gives him an unmatched perspective. Join him for an insider's insight, a remarkable retrospective, and a celebration of the silver anniversary of the telescope he helped make famous.

Please comment and ask questions, +Tony Darnell  from DeepAstronomy will be onhand monitoring and answering them.

Our Sun Came Late to the Milky Way's Star Formation Party

Our Sun missed the stellar "baby boom" that erupted in our young Milky Way galaxy 10 billion years ago. During that time the Milky Way was churning out stars 30 times faster than it does today. Our galaxy was ablaze with a firestorm of star birth as its rich reservoir of hydrogen gas compressed under gravity, creating myriad stars. But our Sun was not one of them. It was a late "boomer," arising 5 billion years later, when star birth had plunged to a trickle.

Astronomers compiled this story of our Milky Way's growth from studying galaxies similar in mass to our galaxy, found in deep surveys of the universe. Stretching back in time more than 10 billion years, the census contains nearly 2,000 snapshots of Milky Way-like galaxies. The analysis comprises the most comprehensive multi-observatory galaxy survey yet, and includes data from the Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey (CANDELS), taken with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

Star formation and evolution in galaxies like our Milky Way have distinct characteristics that are only now being surveyed and understood.  With help from the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers are beginning to get more information to help them fill in pieces of the puzzle.

Please join +Tony Darnell Dr.+Carol Christian and +Scott Lewis as they discuss some of the latest results of a survey recently completed by Hubble that sheds more light on what we know about stellar evolution in galaxies like ours.

Introduction

HubbleSite.org is the online home of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. HubbleSite is produced by the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD, which conducts Hubble's science mission.

Nearly 400 years after Galileo first observed the heavens through a telescope, we continue to seek answers to age-old questions about the universe. And while the technology has evolved over the centuries, the inquiry remains essentially the same: What's out there, where did it come from, and what does it mean?

At the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), we're working hard to study and explain the once-unimaginable celestial phenomena now made visible by the Hubble Space Telescope's cutting-edge technology.

HubbleSite is produced by the Space Telescope Science Institute's Office of Public Outreach.
