The Science from the Hubble Space Telescope Hubble is an upgradeable, space-based telescope flying almost km above most of our image-distorting atmosphere.

It is designed to take high-resolution images and accurate spectra by concentrating starlight to form sharper images than is possible from the ground, where the atmospheric 'twinkling' of the stars limits the clarity of the images.

Working with astronomical image processors at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Md., renowned astro-photographer Robert Gendler has taken science data from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) archive and combined it with his own ground-based observations to assemble a photo illustration of the magnificent spiral galaxy M The Hubble Space Telescope (often referred to as HST or Hubble) is a space telescope that was launched into low Earth orbit in and remains in operation.

It was not the first space telescope but it is one of the largest and most versatile, well known both as a vital research tool and as a public relations boon for astronomy.
