Astronomers are celebrating the release of remarkable new images from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST).

They prove the mission carried out by astronauts in May to service the observatory was an outstanding success.

The latest pictures include trademark Hubble visions - from colliding galaxies to dying stars.

It's hard to believe that, possibly, someone very small, is worried about a job interview.

For me some of the pictures that hubble take, touch me very deeply inside. Like how the best art touches some humans, and makes them all goey inside.

Some of the pictures we have seen from hubble have been so beautiful. Just think, us scum are part of this all. Just think all of the looney humans vendettas mean nothing in the sands of time. While we live in something so beautiful, people are just scum, here to ruin anything they can.

I love the images from the Hubble telescope! I saw the butterfly nebula one earlier today and was just awestruck at how beautiful it is. I think the galaxy really is a beautiful place.

Dude, I remember, the picture, pointed into a blank and empty spot in the universe (btw the guy who did it outspent his time, gratefully now though!) and when it was developed, so much was seen, that we couldn't fathom it being there, in a vastness of nothing.

Just makes me wonder, how the others are living, we assume in a greater essence, but are some just slaves in a whole planet, are we lucky to have the little slavery we have.

Most of, in such space, how could we not be alone, we aren't even SPOTTABLE! in the universe!.

LMAO, that's so incredibly sad too.

I have a silly question. Please bear with the naive Nixie a moment.

I was looking at the incredible butterfly picture from Hubble.

Where does the light come from? Do they have to enhance the picture? Does it come from the nebula? Surrounding stars or suns? What makes it glow?

Thanks! and please don't hurt me.

I think thats a good question which made me do a little search. From a quick google I found this but your question is quite specific but hope this may help...




The Hubble Space Telescope has two kinds of instruments: (1) imagers, which take pictures; and (2) spectrographs, which analyze light. Imagers are electronic detectors called charge -- coupled devices (CCD's). The CCD's convert light into electronic signals, which an on -- board computer records and sends to the ground. A spectrograph, like a prism, spreads light into its component colors, much as water droplets spread sunlight into a rainbow. The resulting band of light is called a spectrum (plural spectra). Using spectrographic data from the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers can determine the composition of stars and galaxies--measuring, for example, the amounts of hydrogen, carbon, and other chemical elements in them
