University of Exeter to use Nasa Hubble Space Telescope

An international team of scientists led by the University of Exeter has secured nearly 200 hours using Nasa's Hubble Space Telescope.
The team said that securing nearly 200 hours' use of the telescope made its project one of the biggest ever.
They are planning to explore the atmospheric conditions of planets outside our solar system, known as exoplanets.

NASA's Hubble Makes One Millionth Science Observation

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope crossed another milestone in its space odyssey of exploration and discovery. On Monday, July 4, the Earth-orbiting observatory logged its one millionth science observation during a search for water in an exoplanet's atmosphere 1,000 light-years away.

A brief and belated happy birthday to an old friend - officially old now, having achieved majority yesterday.
The Hubble Space Telescope was launched April 24, 1990, and nothing in our universe - or, more precisely, nothing in our perception of our universe - has been the same since.

Hubble astronomers unveiled a panoramic view Tuesday (4th January, 2011) of the universe's youngest galaxies, offering the earliest look yet at the puny predecessors to our own Milky Way.
The few faint earliest galaxies that emerge from the survey of about 7,500 galaxies are much smaller and filled with young, massive stars. They shine from only 600 million to 800 million years after the Big Bang, which took place about 12.9 to 13.1 billion years ago.

Starry-Eyed Hubble Celebrates 20 Years of Awe and Discovery

NASA's best-recognised, longest-lived, and most prolific space observatory zooms past a threshold of 20 years of operation this month. On April 24, 1990, the space shuttle and crew of STS-31 were launched to deploy the Hubble Space Telescope into a low Earth orbit. What followed was one of the most remarkable sagas of the space age. Hubble's unprecedented capabilities made it one of the most powerful science instruments ever conceived by humans, and certainly the one most embraced by the public. Hubble discoveries revolutionised nearly all areas of current astronomical research, from planetary science to cosmology. And, its pictures were unmistakably out of this world.
