Tribute to NASA's Hubble Telescope

Hubble Telescope Anniversary Lagoon Nebula

To pay tribute to its 28th birthday celebration, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has transmitted down two unique pictures of the mind blowing Lagoon Nebula. Indeed, even after 163,000 circles around the planet and over a million photographs, the Hubble never fails to awe. The pictures are an indication of exactly how much understanding the instrument has given us since it was first propelled on April 24, 1990


The star of the pictures is Herschel 36 which shafts splendidly at the focal point of the photographs. Only 1 million years of age—an infant by star models—it's 200,000 time brighter and 32 times bigger than the Sun. Found 4,000 light years away, the Lagoon Nebula shows up as a bit in the sky when looking through binoculars, however because of the Hubble we can see it in its full greatness.
