Hubble's Universe Full Episode Guide

  • Find out how the Hubble Space Telesope has helped revolutionise astronomy, including shedding light on dark matter and dark energy, lifting the veil on black holes, and peering into the dusty regions around stars to image exoplanets.

  • New data from the Hubble Space Telescope is adding twists to an older quest: to find out how many galaxies are in the universe, and how far out to they go?

  • The Hubble Space Telescope has revolutionized the science of astronomy and redefined space for the general public. What lies in its future, and how will it's dovetail with that of the new James Webb Space Telescope?

  • On May 4th, 2016, the Hubble Space Telescope made the first spectroscopic measurements of two of the three known Earth-sized exoplanets in the TRAPPIST-1 system just 40 light-years away. Now the results are in: a thick, puffy, hydrogen-helium atmosphere is likely ruled out from the possible range of atmospheres for these two planets.

  • NGC 7635 lies 8,000 light-years away in the constellation Cassiopeia. Due to its very large size on the sky, previous Hubble images have only shown small sections of the nebula. Now, a mosaic of four images from Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) allows us to see the whole object in one picture for the first time.

  • The Hubble Space Telescope got off to a rocky start after its April, 1990 deployment, when operators found that its high-gain antenna was mysteriously stuck. Then in 1994, it went on the fritz with Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 on a beeline for Jupiter. Engineers have had to dig deep into their tool kits to confront a series of potentially fatal technical obstacles.

  • This surveys the range of burning questions being addressed by Hubble: how far can Hubble see? How does Hubble study black holes? What has Hubble taught us about planets beyond our solar system?

  • A vivid new image of colliding galaxies known as Arp 142. When two galaxies stray too close to each other they begin to interact, causing spectacular changes in both objects.

  • The famous Ring Nebula's distinctive shape makes it a popular illustration. New observations of the glowing gas shroud add a new twist.

  • The famed Tarantula Nebula is explored in a detailed image from the Hubble Space Telescope. The Large Magellanic Cloud, or LMC, is a small companion galaxy of our own Milky Way. It can be seen with the naked eye, as a faint grey blotch in the constellation of Dorado.

  • Before NASA�۪s New Horizons probe flew past Pluto in July 2015, almost all of the information scientists had about this mysterious dwarf planet came from observations made by Hubble.

  • Striking observations from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope of a spiral galaxy moving through the heart of a galaxy cluster named Abell 3627. Hot x-ray winds from this cluster are violently ripping the spiral's entrails out into space, like a stiff headwind, leaving bright blue streaks.

  • The Hubble Space Telescope has returned to one of its most famous landmarks: the Eagle Nebula, known as the Pillars of Creation. The revolutionary space telescope has delivered a new visible-light image as well as a revealing infrared image.

  • Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have captured infrared-light images of a churning region of star birth 6,400 light-years away.

  • NGC 5189 is the remnant of a dead sun-like star in our galaxy. This planetary nebula has a chaotic shape, like a ribbon in space. How it got that way is a long-running mystery recently unraveled by the Hubble Space Telescope.

  • Revel in some of the highest resolution images from the Hubble Space Telescope. Experience anew the detail in these inspiring images, snatched from distant galaxies, exploding stars, brilliant gas clouds, and black holes.

  • This video explores a phenomenon called gravitational lensing. The gravitational force of a galaxy, full of stars, gas, dark matter, and dust, is so enormous that it affects the region it sits in and distorts the very fabric of the surrounding space.

  • Hubble's 23rd Anniversary image is a stunning new image of one of the most distinctive objects in our skies: the Horsehead Nebula. It shows the nebula in a whole new light, revealing a beautiful, delicate structure that is normally obscured by dust.

  • One of the greatest scientific endeavors ever launched. Hubble sees back to the early days of the universe. Revel in this big picture look at what Hubble does, adapted from Hubblecast.

  • Giant galaxy clusters are the most massive structures in the Universe. Using the magnification effect caused by their mass, Hubble can look deeper into the Universe than ever before.

  • Take a breathtaking journey into the future, five billion years from now, to see the ultimate fate of the Solar System. This gem from HubbleCast showcases stunning Hubble imagery of the death throes of Sun-like stars.
