A tower of cold gas and dust rises from the Eagle Nebula.

The Eagle Has Risen: Stellar Spire in the Eagle Nebula. A billowing tower of gas and dust rises from the stellar nursery known as the Eagle Nebula. This small piece of the Eagle Nebula is 57 trillion miles long trillion km).

the Hubble telescope allows us to see farther than we've ever seen before. And due to its high-tech cameras, we can distinguish between stars' atmospheres. Older stars cool down and become red giants, while younger stars burn blue.

The Horse Head Nebula is a cloud of ionized- hydrogen in the constellation Orion. The clouds are lit from within by young hot stars. The interstellar dust absobs the light from part of ionized cloud creating this beautiful contrast

NASA Honors Hubble's Birthday By Releasing Incredible Photo

Astronomy is the science of that which happens beyond our Earth. Images like this one of stellar jet activity in the Carina Nebula, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, help us understand the universe.

This image of a pair of interacting galaxies called Arp 273 was released to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.    The distorted shape of the larger of the two galaxies shows signs of tidal interactions with the smaller of the two. It is thought that the smaller galaxy has actually passed through the larger one.
