Hubble amazing photos
Hubble Space Telescope is an astronomical satellite in orbit around Earth. It observes stars, galaxies and other astronomical objects in wide ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum from infrared and ultraviolet to visible light. The HST is a collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency, and is one of NASA’s Great Observatories. Named after the American astronomer Edwin Hubble, it was launched by the Space Shuttle Discovery in 1990, and orbits at a height of around 600 kilometres.
The Hubble Space Telescope has been silently hovering above Earth for over 25 years, but it’s still returning spectacular images of the cosmos. Some of Hubble’s images have become cultural icons—Pillars of Creation, the Horsehead Nebula.
The monumental work – an installation between 8 and 9 meters high called “Support” – represents two hands symbolizing the Ca ‘Sagredo building in Venice. The giant hands were made by Lorenzo Quinn, son of the well-known actor Anthony.
