Amazing pictures from Hubble Space Telescope

Hubble space telescope was first launched in 1990. Have experienced damage to its main mirror, but now been repaired and began sending back images of magnificent and the detail of outer space. Here are some of the best.

Light to reach across interstellar space, Nebula (constellations) Cat's Eye (Cat Eye Nebula) occupies a point at a distance of 3000 light years from Earth. One of the best planetary nebulae known, NGC 6543 is more than half by size light years and was showing the last phase is also incredibly short of a star like our life the sun

Probably similar to a sea horse, but this dark object is actually a fog of dust that reaches 20-year length of light. This structure occurs in our neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud, the star formation environment near the Tarantula Nebula

MyCn18: an hour glass nebula. Over time will run out to the central star of planetary nebulae are shaped hour glass. With the release of nuclear fuel, the last phase of life star like the sun occurs when the outer layers are released - essentially a form of white dwarfs cool faded.

M104 spiral galaxy is known for its unique profile. Seen as a silhouette as the light of stars, dust lanes make it feel like a cosmic hat.

In 1787, astronomer William Herschel discovered Eskimo Nebula, NGC 2392, which resembles a head covered by a thick veil jacket worn by Eskimos.

A pair of sparkling eyes this is the core-core spinning of two galaxies that merged the 2207 and NGC 2163 IC in Canis Major. Billions of years from now, only one of two remaining galaxy. Until then, they will slowly pull each other to split up.

This is the Cone Nebula within the bright galaxies in the area of star formation, NGC 2264.

The image of the nebula NGC 1999. Nebula image itself does not emit light. They shone with a light source in it, like a street lamp shining on the fog. Bright young star in the center left is the illuminating NGC 1999.

Figure this one is sometimes given the name "Starry Night", based on a painting by Vincent Van Gogh. For no apparent reason, the outer surface of the star V838 Mon suddenly enlarged and make become the brightest star in the Milky Way in January 2002. Then suddenly also become faded.

Planetary nebulae Mz3: The Ant Nebula. Removing the gas flowing at a speed far in 1000 miles per second creates a strange form of ants.

Orion Nebula, M42, "only" 1500 light years away. This nebula may be the best opportunity to study how stars are born because not only is the area of formation of the nearest stars, but also energetic stars of these nebulae contribute to eliminate the clouds of dust mengaburkannya.

A giant gas and dust pillar in the Trifid Nebula, described by a smaller pillar pointing up and an unusual jet pointing to the left.

Like a square nebula, IC 4406 may be similar to a hollow cylinder, with a square appearance due to see it from the side.

M74: The Perfect Spiral. Even if not exactly perfect, this spiral galaxy is at least one of the most photogenic. An island universe with 100 billion stars, 32 million light years away from the constellation Sagittarius, M74 appearance is indeed extraordinary.

NGC 2818 is a beautiful planetary nebulae, umbrella like gas from a star like a dying sun. At a glance we can imagine what the future of our Sun in 5 billion years.

This is a disorder caused by an exploding star. Crab Nebula is the result of a supernova seen in 1045 AD. In the center there is a nebulanya pulsar: a neutron star like the sun but only the size of a small town.

Perfect storm: Formed by the winds and strong radiation, fantastic shape, wavy stars in the space known as M17, the Omega Nebula, which is 5500 light years from the constellation Sagittarius.

Two of these galaxies are attract each other. Known as The Mice that tail-long tail, they will probably continue to be united collide.
