The Hubble Space Telescope turns 25

posted by Jason Kottke   Apr 27, 2015

The Hubble Space Telescope was deployed into space on April 25, 1990 and began snapping images of the sky shortly thereafter. Phil Plait, the NY Times, NPR, and How We Get To Next have chosen some of their favorite Hubble images, and Taschen published a coffee table book of Hubble images called Expanding Universe.

I still find it incredible that we have a telescope orbiting the Earth. Happy birthday, Hubble. Here’s to many more.
