Modern astronomy has succeeded remarkably well in explaining
the cosmic origins of the human race -- how the galaxy was
assembled, how the Sun and Earth were formed, and from where
the precious chemical elements that comprise our bodies
came. For the first time in history, the human race is
poised to use that knowledge of our cosmic past to predict
our cosmic future, and it looks extraordinarily bright
ahead. Evidently, we human beings have been given the most
precious gift of all, cosmic time -- roughly a billion years
of it. The ultimate challenge to our species is now clear:
how will we use this extraordinary opportunity? Incorporating
the profound insights from cosmology will be central to
answering this question.

Join astronomer Sandra Faber of the University of California, Santa Cruz, either online or in-person for May's Public Lecture Series. Visit http://hubblesite.org/about_us/public_talks/ for links to both live and previous lectures, or join us in the Space Telescope Science Institute auditorium, 3700 San Martin Drive, Baltimore, Md., 21218. The Public Lecture Series occurs on the first Tuesday of every month. Admission is free and free parking is available in the lot across the street.

Latest News: Peering to the outskirts of our solar system, Hubble has spotted a small, dark moon orbiting Makemake, the second brightest icy dwarf planet — after Pluto — in the Kuiper Belt.

Happy 26th anniversary to the Hubble Space Telescope! And what better way to celebrate a birthday than with a giant space balloon? Hubble photographed this enormous bubble being blown into space by a super-hot, massive star. The Bubble Nebula, or NGC 7635, is created by a seething star 45 times more massive than our Sun. Gas on the star gets so hot that it escapes away into space as a "stellar wind" moving at over 4 million miles per hour. This outflow sweeps up the cold, interstellar gas in front of it, forming the outer edge of the bubble much like a snowplow piles up snow in front of it as it moves forward.

Scientists are using archival data to investigate a wide variety of astrophysical problems, and recently a supernova was found by researchers. Hear all about the discovery!

Please join Dr. +Carol Christian+Tony Darnell and +Scott Lewis as they discuss with scientists the motivations, technology, and research on these types of objects.

Today on the Frontier Fields blog, we're talking to astronomer Gabriel Brammer:

"I must say I was pretty miserably exhausted my first night observing up on the mountain top, ready to adjust my career plans at 4 a.m., with the local radio reminding us between cumbia (dance music) hits of the glacial progress of time — 'son las cuatro con cinco minutes … son las cuatro con diez minutos' ... by the third night I was hooked."

It's a good time to check out the webcam for the James Webb Space Telescope construction at Goddard Space Flight Center. The mirrors are being uncovered. http://jwst.nasa.gov/webcam.html

It's our birthday, but you get the presents. Get the wallpaper of today's anniversary image: http://hubblesite.org/gallery/wallpaper/pr2016013a/

About This Image. To mark Hubble's 26th birthday, astronomers captured this party balloon-like sphere of gas being blown into space by a super-hot, massive star. The Bubble Nebula, or NGC 7635, is caused by hot gas escaping into space from a star 45 times more massive than the Sun.

Hubble fans, we'll be attending the USA Science and Engineering Festival this weekend in Washington, DC. Come visit us on the 16th and 17th in the NASA section (booth 6307) and enjoy a wealth of activities. Got a favorite image from the Hubble, Chandra or Spitzer observatories? Play with an interactive touchscreen that lets you navigate the night sky with the WorldWide Telescope program to locate it. Explore a 3-D "augmented reality" image of the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope, and experiment with filter glasses to see how different types of astronomical objects give off different types of light. Find out what popular images from Hubble, Chandra and Spitzer would feel like converted into a tactile/braille display, explore how the Webb Space Telescope and the Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope will open up new windows into the universe, and more.

Plus check out these events on Saturday, April 16:

* 1:30 p.m. at the NASA exhibit: "Search for Life in the Universe," with Webb Space Telescope Project Scientist Jason Kalirai
* 2 p.m. at the NASA exhibit: "Hubble's Views of the Solar System," with Astrophysicist Bonnie Meinke
* 5-5:50 p.m. at the Hall A/Career Pavilion: Talk one-on-one with scientists and engineers who work on the Hubble and Webb space telescopes.

Latest News: Imagine driving through a small town containing modest-sized buildings and seeing a 100-story skyscraper. Astronomers found the equivalent monstrosity in space: a near-record supermassive black hole that weighs 17 billion suns and lives in a cosmic backwater community of a few galaxies. Until now, extremely massive black holes have been found at the cores of very large galaxies in regions of the universe packed with other large galaxies. This is not just coincidence. Like a cosmic Pac-Man, a monster black hole gobbles smaller black holes when two galaxies collide. This game of bumper cars is common in large galaxy clusters. In fact, the current black hole record holder tips the scale at 21 billion suns and resides in the crowded Coma galaxy cluster, located 330 million light-years away.

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.
