Renders of reality | Hubble Space Telescope

NASA placed the space telescope Hubble into orbit 30 years ago in 1990, which, in addition to the epoch-making discoveries, also shares awe-inspiring images with us. 

The first pictures taken by the Hubble proved to be blurry, and so NASA sent a crew back up to fix the problem, thanks to which its camera has been taking crystal clear photos ever since. The photos could easily be part of the set of any sci-fi movie or be mistaken for computer renders, but what’s the best about them is the fact that they are real. The space device that has enabled us to explore exciting celestial phenomena has also helped determine the age and expansion rate of the universe as well as the mass and size of our home, the Milky Way galaxy.
