    Since the earliest days of astronomy, since the time of Galileo, astronomers have shared a single goal. To see more, see farther, see deeper.The Hubble Space Telescope's launch in 1990 sped humanity to one of its greatest advances in that journey. Hubble is a telescope that orbits Earth. Its position above the atmosphere, which distorts and blocks the light that reaches our planet, gives it a view of the universe that typically far surpasses that of ground-based telescopes.Hubble is one of NASA's most successful and long-lasting science missions. It has beamed hundreds of thousands of images back to Earth, shedding light on many of the great mysteries of astronomy. Its gaze has helped determine the age of the universe, the identity of quasars, and the existence of dark energy. Hubble's discoveries have transformed the way scientists look at the universe. Its ability to show the universe in unprecedented detail has turned astronomical conjectures into concrete certainties. It has winnowed down the collection of theories about the universe even as it sparked new ones, clarifying the path for future astronomers.…

    In the old days, many believe that we are the only living things on our galaxy or even in the whole universe. No one even bothers to look beyond our planet and explore the space for that matter. Though in Ancient Egypt, Babylonians use to study the Sun, Moon and stars just to generate a calendar for farming and religious rites but it never extended that far. Then in early 1900's people started to explore space and study matters beyond our planet. Edwin Hubble was the first person who introduced…

    Space is a huge sea of unknown. We are simply specks of dust, trying to figure out the behaviors of giants. Thus it is apparent that the specks can not know much. For now. One of the biggest mysteries is the expansion of the universe; in the 1990s, we knew that theoretically, our ever-expanding universe was slowing down due to gravity, and that it would eventually collapse or keep expanding, just slower as time went on. However, thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope, we now know that to be dead…
