Nancy Grace Roman explains the Advanced Orbiting Solar Observatory to astronaut Buzz Aldrin in 1965.

NASA’s powerful new space telescope will be named after Nancy Grace Roman — the agency’s first female executive, known as the ‘...

Nancy Grace Roman was told she couldn't do science. She became NASA's first woman executive and made the Hubble Space Telescope possible.
Jupiter in infrared light, as observed by the international Gemini Observatory on May 29, 2019.

Astronomers just stitched together an unprecedented portrait of Jupiter in infrared — and realized its Great Red Spot is full of holes

Astronomers created a "weather satellite" by linking a Jupiter-orbiting spacecraft, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, and an observatory on Earth.
This photograph of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope was taken on the fifth servicing mission to the observatory in 2009.

Here’s how to see what photo the Hubble Space Telescope took on your birthday

NASA created a search feature that allows you to look up photos taken by the Hubble Space Telescope on any given date.
NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory captured the remains of a supernova called Tycho, October 23, 2019.

27 stunning photos of the cosmos taken this year

This was a year of photographic firsts, from the very first image of a black hole to the world's first photo taken on the far side of the moon.
An artist's illustration of the sun-like star Kepler 51 and two of its three giant super-puff planets that NASA's Kepler space telescope discovered in 2012.

NASA has confirmed a new class of huge ‘super-puff’ planets that have the density of cotton candy

Because their hydrogen-helium atmospheres balloon out, these planets are nearly as big as Jupiter, but are 100 times less massive.

When the Andromeda galaxy crashes into the Milky Way, this is what it could look like from Earth

The Milky Way is on track to collide with the Andromeda galaxy in about 4 billion years. NASA images reveal what the night sky might look like.
A simulated view of dark matter density (blue) and visible matter (orange) in the universe's cosmic web.

The universe is expanding faster than scientists thought, a study confirms — a ‘crisis in cosmology’ that could require a ‘new...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and new mirror technology confirmed a mystery that could lead to a "new physics," one astrophysicist said.
This Hubble image taken October 12, 2019 is the sharpest view of the comet 2I/Borisov to date.

NASA’s Hubble space telescope just took incredible photos of a visiting comet from another star system

NASA also released a time-lapse video of the comet, 2I/Borisov, hurtling past the sun. The images show a halo of dust surrounding the alien object.
An artist’s impression of the massive bursts of radiation (purple) exploding from the center of the Milky Way and impacting the Magellanic Stream (the white cloud below the Milky Way spiral).

A huge explosion sliced through our galaxy just 3.5 million years ago, as human ancestors walked the Earth. Scientists think it was nuclear activity i...

NASA's Hubble telescope found traces of the explosion in a gas stream beyond the Milky Way, "dramatically" changing scientists' view of our galaxy.
A new Hubble Space Telescope view of Jupiter, taken on June 27, 2019, reveals the giant planet's Great Red Spot.

A new NASA portrait of Jupiter reveals its disappearing Great Red Spot in unprecedented color

A Hubble image shows the bands of Jupiter's atmosphere in intense colors and highlights the planet's signature — though shrinking — storm.
