NASA Releases Stunning Photos in Celebration of Hubble Space Telescope's 28th Anniversary

NASA Releases Stunning Photos in Celebration of Hubble Space Telescope's 28th Anniversary

Every year since, scientists at NASA, together with the European Space Agency (ESA), release spectacular images from it to recognize its "Birthday". This dust-and-gas landscape is being sculpted by powerful ultraviolet radiation and hurricane-like stellar winds unleashed by a monster young star.

According to the NASA, a giant star called as Heschel 36 was exploding and Hubble Space Telescope has captured the image of the explosion perfectly which shows the traditions and winds that are released by the star inside Nebula. The observations were taken by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) instrument between February 12 and 18, 2018. Making infrared observations of the cosmos allows astronomers to penetrate vast clouds of gas and dust to uncover hidden gems.

The Lagoon Nebula is a hub of stars being born, and it's 55 light-years wide and 20 light-years tall.

It's 200,000 times brighter than our sun, but if you looked at it with binoculars you would only see a smudge of light with a bright core.

Hubble images don't even capture the full scale of the Lagoon Nebula. This image shows only a small part of this turbulent star-formation region, about 4 light-years across.

The video is also quite captivating; there are more located here.

"It looks like a smudge with a pair of binoculars or a small telescope, but when the Hubble looks at it, it's an incredibly lovely, twisting tornado-like structure of dark dust".

Hundreds of pounds of dynamite stolen from Pa. pipeline worksite
The reward was doubled to $20,000, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced Thursday. If caught, the thieves could face at least $10,000 in fines and up to 10 years in prison, CNN Wire reported.

Among the sculptures created by Herschel 36 are two interstellar twisters - eerie, rope-like structures that each measure half a light-year in length. The Lagoon nebula is located about 4 thousand light years from planet Earth. A lot of them are more distant, background stars located behind the nebula itself.

The eyepopping images are just one example of the kinds of interstellar phenomenons captured by Hubble since its inception.

In its 28-year lifetime, its circled Earth more than 163,500 times and traveled even farther than the distance from here to Pluto. The whole nebula, about 4000 light-years away, is an incredible 55 light-years wide and 20 light-years tall. The new telescope will be going to space in 2020.

The Hubble observes ultraviolet wavelengths, which the atmosphere filters out, and it collects visible light.

The Hubble telescope was proof of a miscalculation of the Einstein.

The machinery sits more than 370 miles above earth.

Hubble Telescope has managed to give many important information about the Universe.
