Hubble images give us a grand voyage to Orion's Belt in this video showing a star nursery with freshly newborn stars, and proto stars and ends with a star in the process of being born.

Truly a testament to the immense value of the Hubble telescope which should NOT be allowed (as NASA has planned) to re enter the atmosphere and burn up!

That literally took my breath, like hypnotizing.
Thank you for sharing it

I was curious if there is a better version today but it is not.

Only in 2021 they launch this one:

Thanks for that, did not expect it to be so amazing. Wish I could say more but leaves one kind speechless at the scale of it all.

What value is that exactly?

James Webb is a disaster of a project though. ELT will be better.

So….

How many Light Years of Distance did the viewer travel to make that 9 minute Voyage...
most of which did not even give us a close-up visitation of the 3 Stars which compromise Orion's Belt

my guess , about 150,000 Light Years ----

Thanks Oleandra88Iam glad you enjoyed it.

Even when they do get the James Webb Telescope up and running we will still have a line a mile long for people wanting to book time on it to view stars.

Keeping Hubble operational would give us 2 Telescopes to use and hopefully cut down on the wait times.

And even though NASA does not have a shuttle program anymore to boost Hubble back into orbit, Elon Musk could do the job for a lot cheaper than launching it in the first place.


Cheers

You are most welcome kwakakev, I know the feeling.

Glad you enjoyed it.


Cheers

The value to Astronomers, Cosmology and just everyday people who enjoy seeing what parts of our galaxy look like.

In order from left to right, the stars in Orion's belt and their distance to Earth are : Alnitak, 736 light years. Alnilam, 1340 light years. Mintaka, 915 light years.

Sorry we did not get a close up of your favorite stars.

Maybe next time.

The distances involved make it clear that any probe or rocket we launched to this area could not arrive in time to do our species any good.

Therefore using Hubble images are a valuable tool in allowing us to see these areas close up in the meantime.

In producing this video like all travel videos one must scout your target for the most interesting places to visit.

In this case the star nursery in this area was deemed to be the the target of most interest.

Yes it was truly fascinating.

I know the article I gave is a bit older for 2018 but there they are saying Hubble will still online by 2021 in that article. I guess something happened so it can not?

"Hubble's orbit is stable until the 2030s, Brown said. When that orbit begins to decay, the spacecraft will be deliberately crashed into Earth's atmosphere, where Hubble will burn up before it touches the ground."

I say maintain Hubble's orbit and service the instruments as long as possible.

And create a spacecraft/program to do so?

Nice idea but don't hold your breath.

Nah, I think Elon could pop up there and give it nudge for a decent price.

Wouldn't hurt to ask.

Oh, from you other post it sounded like Hubble would be gone by 2021.

Because you wrote about how it would make sense keeping two operational at the same time. That confused me a bit.

Sorry for the confusion.

My position is as long as any space telescope is still operational, it's orbit should be maintained.

Who has the technology and how much will it cost? Is there other servicing issues that will need to be done while at it?

$10-$50 Million as a guess?

Entertainment to keep us distracted and from focusing on our stunningly insignificant place in the universe before we get sick and die horribly.
