Since 1990 launch Hubble change our concept of understanding the universe.
As we know planets are born in knots of dust. An unknown energy that expanse the universe. Many asteroids shattered. Galaxies crash together to remake themselves. For more than 25 years, the Hubble space has brought us the wonder, beauty and mysterious things of the universe.
This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope depicts NGC 6302, commonly known as the Butterfly Nebula. NGC 6302 lies within our Milky Way galaxy, roughly 3800 light-years away in the constellation of Scorpius. The glowing gas was once the star’s outer layers, but has been expelled over about 2200 years. The butterfly shape stretches for more than two light-years, which is about half the distance from the Sun to the nearest star, Proxima Centauri. New observations of the object have found unprecedented levels of complexity and rapid changes in the jets and gas bubbles blasting off of the star at the centre of the nebula.
NASA’s Hubble Telescope capture an image, the image of the Lenticular Galaxy NGC 3489. There galaxies are not quite helix galaxies. They lie somewhere between galaxies to show both traits. These galaxies have a central point that is tightly packed with starts. It’s a thin, circular disk of stars, dust, gas and small stones. They are like Helix galaxy except they lack arms.
NGC 3489 has an active galactic nucleus. It sits at the centre and is so bright and emits radiation across the entire space as the Black hole devour anything that came close to it.
Lenticular galaxy is a Seyfert galaxy which is a class of AGN that is feeble that other types of it. They normally don’t shine the rest of the galaxy, so the galaxy around the black hole can be visible.
NGC 3489 is about 30 million years away from the constellation Leo.
Behind Hubble’s captivity, there is a team of people who control the telescope and ensure its safety & functions and innovate it many ways to keep it at top performance that is more than 3 decades.
This group of scientists, engineers and operators at NASA space center work hard together to make this Hubble and monitor it as it travels around the Earth. They make sure to specialize their work facilities that provide the tools and equipment needed to operate this great observation and continue to show us great knowledge of space.
With over 1.5 million observations Hubble continues to remain in Earth surface. It sends us the images of light distorting, blocking effects of our planet’s atmosphere. It answers most of our crucial question about cosmos. It had studies 40000 cosmic objects that many astronomers were unable to capture. Earth’s atmosphere is made of many shifting layers of air that cause the twinkling appearance of the start and even planets in the night sky. As the telescope orbits the Earth, it’s mirror caught light from cosmos, collecting data and images.
There was an information and when Hubble was launched the age of the universe was 10-20 billion years.
