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.

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.

Eagle nebula. This cloud of dust and gasses has a length of 9.5 light-years. That's twice the distance from the sun to it's neighbours in the Alpha Centauri system. New stars are born in clouds like these.

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).

Remember the “#PillarsofCreation,” the star-forming nursery in the heart of the #EagleNebula? You’ve never seen it like this.

The Most Amazing Hubble Image Ever

Hubble Sees a Star 'Inflating' a Giant Bubble ~ Just in time for the anniversary of Hubble's launch on April the telescope has photographed an enormous, balloon-like bubble being blown into space by a super-hot, massive star.

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

The new Hubble photo of the pillars of creation is sharper than the original, and also has a wider field of view. It also reveals the base of the cold, gassy columns for the first time.

Hubble captures 'Pillars of creation' in unprecedented detail

The Pillars of Creation, from a Hubble Image January This is in the Eagle Nebula, light years from Earth. These are clouds of interstellar gas and dust that continue to create new stars.
