Jul 11, · "NASA's Viking Project found a place in history when it became the first U.S. mission to land a spacecraft safely on the surface of Mars and return images of . The Hubble telescope: A giant peep for mankind Yesterday, Nasa pledged to save Hubble from destruction - and boost its powers. Steve Connor celebrates the telescope that unlocked space's most. NASA has suspended science operations with the Hubble Space Telescope and put the observatory into protective “safe mode” while engineers troubleshoot problems with one of the spacecraft’s.
The new galaxy is called NGCand it is located million light-years from Earth. Two galaxies were helplessly pulled together and unite into a single body. According to a statement released by the European Space Agency, the new galaxy will eventually take its own shape and form.
It might not be anything like its parents and could give way to countless new things. This event raises so many questions and opens up countless possibilities.

For the longest time, NGC was thought to be a single galaxy near the constellation of Hercules. With this new Hubble telescope image, scientists realize that it has been the merging of two separate galaxies all along.
The slow birth of this new galaxy has no name yet and is largely unexplored. Something this remarkable will not be overlooked anymore.
There could already be life blooming here; there could even be interplanetary travel happening there. There is no way to know just yet, but with closer inspection and patience, we may get to find out what truly lies beyond what we know and what we see.Sep 08, · This is just one tenth of the image known as the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field, taken over the equivalent of twelve days of pointing this ultra-powerful telescope at a .
Of Hubble’s future, Cepollina said: “As long as the telescope can collect photons, and we can provide next-generation instruments, we should keep truckin’.” For the astronauts who rescued Hubble, disengagement from the telescope was bittersweet.
May 07, · Hubble Telescope in Kennedy Space Center Clean Room before Launch Title - Ed Weiler, Acting Assistant Administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate - The story of the Hubble Space Telescope launch is best.
NASA Hubble Telescope has witnessed the birth of a new galaxy today, born from the merging to two others. Could the telescope spot UFO’s next? NASA is turning control of the Hubble Space Telescope over to the general public to give non-scientists a chance to choose which target the iconic observatory should turn its camera eyes on next.
