Hubble Space Telescope
| Since the
deployment of the Space Telescope in 1990, it's images have changed the
way we look at the universes that surround us.
Every day, Hubble archives 3 to 5 gigabytes of data and delivers between 10 and 15 gigabytes to astronomers all over the world.
It can make observations of the universe using visible, near-ultraviolet and near-infrared light spectra above the filtering effect of earth's atmosphere.
Since seeing these images, it has renewed an old childhood hobby. Looking at the stars and planets through a telescope.
Before you go, try the free
screensaver that I have created using the incredible images from the
HST along with a few of my own. This screensaver requires no fancy
installation! Just download and run the setup and your done. All images can be set as
wallpaper too! It also comes with an uninstall option.
