Hubble Beholds a Big, Beautiful Blue Galaxy

NGC 2336 is the quintessential galaxy — big, beautiful, and blue — and it is captured here by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

’s Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) has been named the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope after the agency's first Chief of Astronomy, who paved the way for space telescopes focused on the broader universe!

New ‘Eyewear’ to Deepen the View of NASA’s Roman Space Telescope

NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope will be able to explore even more cosmic questions, thanks to a new near-infrared filter. The upgrade will allow the observatory to see longer wavelengths of light, opening up exciting new opportunities for discoveries from the edge of our solar system to the farthest reaches of space.

Hubble Takes Portrait of the ‘Lost Galaxy’

Located in the constellation of Virgo (The Virgin), around 50 million light-years from Earth, the galaxy NGC 4535 is truly a stunning sight to behold.

Soon, through the power of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), astronomers will look back to that raucous, early period in a deep-sky survey to trace the formation and evolution of the first galaxies.

Hubble Views a Dazzling ‘Fireworks Galaxy’

In the last century alone, NGC 6946 has experienced 10 observed supernovae, earning its nickname as the Fireworks Galaxy.

On the Hunt for a Missing Giant Black Hole

Astronomers are searching for signs of a supermassive black hole in the galaxy cluster Abell 2261. Scientists think this galaxy underwent a merger with another galaxy, which could have caused a newly formed larger black hole to be ejected. Astronomers do not yet know what happened to this giant black hole.

The hungriest of black holes are thought to gobble up so much surrounding material they put an end to the life of their host galaxy by creating an energetic object called a quasar. Now, researchers found a galaxy that is surviving the black hole’s ravenous forces, continuing to birth about 100 Sun-sized stars a year.

Observed with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, the faint galaxy featured in this image is known as UGC 12588.

NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope will detect vestiges of sound waves that once rippled through the primordial cosmic sea. According to new simulations, Roman’s observations could extend these measurements into an unprobed epoch between the universe’s infancy and the present day.
