Hubble Space Telescope is one of NASA’s four “Great Observatories” others being Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory, Chandra X-Ray Observatory and Spitzer Space Telescope. Launched in April of 1990, Hubble is one of the most vital research tools for Astronomers. With the final service mission for Hubble completing successfully in 2009, Hubble is expected to offer great insights into the Universe until at least 2014. Hubble will be replaced by its successor, James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).
In over 20 years of operation, Hubble has sent a large number of images to Earth. All Hubble data is eventually made available via the archives of Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). The Hubble Heritage Project processes and releases a small selection of the most striking images to the public.

A Few Hubble Telescope Fun Facts:
- The farthest objects Hubble has seen are galaxies well over 12 billion light years away. This distant observation has been named the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, or HUDF.
- The Hubble Space Telescope was named after Edwin Hubble (1889-1953) who discovered the expansion of the universe and formulated what is now known as Hubble’s Law.
- Provided that Hubble passes closely enough overhead, it is relatively dark, and the skies are clear enough, Hubble can be seen with the naked eye.
- Hubble completes one orbit around the Earth (crossing over the same longitude line) every 96 minutes. Its speed is approximately 8 km per second (5 miles per second).
- Hubble is located about 600 km (375 miles) above the surface of the Earth. In comparison, the moon is an average of 384,400 km (238,860 miles) away.
- Hubble is the only telescope ever designed to be serviced in space by astronauts.
