The Hubble Space Telescope has been orbiting Earth since 1990. It's one of the largest and most versatile space telescopes, and the images it captures and information is gathers have changed our understanding of the universe, as NASA puts it.


Hubble explores the universe 24/7, so of course it has observed some incredible events and fascinating cosmic wonders.
