New Hubble Pictures

September 9, 2009

Hubble was serviced in May of this year. Astronauts replaced old camera with a better new one. Also they repaired some old equipment. Since then Hubble crew was testing and calibrating new devices and finally we have new stunning pictures! Gravitational lenses (light bends affected by massive galaxies), colliding galaxies and exploding stars — all those goodies just one click away :-) As usual Hubble is unbeatable in delivering astronomy pictures, enjoy:

I am speechless — that’s what today’s cutting edge technology can bring us.
