I came across this fascinating site during my astronomical research. I'm currently using the raw images to investigate certain astronomical phenomena. I thought I'd share it here


www.spacetelescope.org...

The 1.4 gigabytes full-size(jpeg) download(some are really huge!!!):

www.spacetelescope.org...

As for the raw images, you have to manually download them one by one by clicking the thumbnails.

Enjoy!

Nice, saw a pic of mars and it appears to have blue skies.

Sometimes I wonder if these photos are even real.

They are just so amazing.

+1.

Breathtaking images. If only it was possible to see some of that stuff with our own eyes by simply looking up at night!

We had to have 'superhuman' vision to do that
Many of the images were taken with long exposure, taking couple of days typically to make the faintest objects visible... Some of the longest exposure times are almost a year!!

Also, many of the pics were a composite of Gamma, X-Ray, UV, visible light, near IR, far IR, and radio images making the pics seem 'extra colorful' and bright.

They would be much fainter and less colorful even if we can view them 'physically close' and from outer space with our own eyes, save for some gas and dust blobs near stars, globular clusters, and galactic centers which can be bright even to the human eye when viewed 'up close' or technically from a few to a few hundred light years away..

Some of you may also be interested in the main hubble site too...

Really cool site and great to navigate. Pictures are categorised and they are available in different formats. Jpg, GIF, Tiff etc. They also have wallpapers, a "Printshop", Image Tours and information on the hubble telescope.

Enjoy.
