Hubble telescope is not the world’s first space telescope but this one is the most versatile and one of the largest telescopes launched in the low Earth orbit. It has been operational in the low Earth orbit since 1990.
With the help of this telescope researchers not only get amazing pictures of the cosmos but also understand the universe for the vital astronomy research. Here we enlist five most amazing Hubble telescope discoveries in the past 25 years.
1. Season indulgence on other planets
With the help of Hubble Telescope scientist understand the seasons on other planets as now they can track the seasonal changes on planets. It allows scientists to observe the color changes in bands of cloud within the enormous gas giant’s atmosphere. Researchers tracked Jupiter’s climate and provide an amazing view of a comet impacting another planetary body. In 1994 when Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 crashed into Jupiter Hubble telescope bequeathed an incredible sight to the people on ground and also provide necessary information regarding the comet influence on another planetary body.
2. Keen-sighted galaxies in the early universe
Within the five operational years of Hubble telescope scientist experience the most iconic views of the universe named as the Telescope’s first deep field. In 1995 this telescope takes a succession of pictures at one small spot in the sky. This series of images revealed some amazing facts to the mission controllers and made them surprised. This telescope keeps clicking images of the deep universe in its lifetime. Astronauts replaced cameras on the telescope in many servicing missions to get more precision and advancement in their research work.
Jennifer Lotz a Hubble astronomer says in a press conference that they got a series of deep fields taken with the help of Hubble Telescope in 1995. He further added that with every passing generation of cameras astronauts analyze and examine the star formation history of the universe more than 95% of its lifetime.
