Let’s Celebrate 25 Years Of The Hubble Telescope With The Very Best Pictures


The Hubble Telescope is celebrating its 25th birthday! It was launched on April 24, 1990, and we can’t deny that this amazing and modern telescope changed the history of astronomy and the way we look at cosmos, with its powerful length and long-range photography. Hubble is responsible for some of the most stunning and extraordinary pictures ever taken of our universe, capturing galaxies, stars and planets that are far away from the Earth, like never before. The Hubble Telescope is helping man to understand the origin and science behind our mysterious universe – and, to celebrate this important event in history, we decided to create a special selection of the 35 very best pictures ever taken by the Hubble Telescope during its 25 years of magical existence. Enjoy!
