More than 30 years in space: the best images of the Hubble Space Telescope with 1.5 million observations

The Gubble Space Telescope went into space on April 24, 1990, thanks to the Discovery spacecraft. He conducted 1.5 million observations of 43,500 celestial objects and helped publish 18,000 scientific papers.

Thanks to Hubble, scientists learned about the expansion of the universe, saw supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies and discovered that most of space consists of mysterious dark matter.

One of the iconic images made by the telescope is the «Pillars of Creation» – a cluster of interstellar gas and dust in the Eagle Nebula, about 7,000 light years from Earth.

In addition to this image, the Hubble Space Telescope is something to be proud of, so hurry to follow the link to see more photos and read about them.
