Hubblecast 109: Diving into the Lagoon Nebula

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 16:00:00 +0200

(image) (image) On 24 April 1990, Hubble was launched into space. To celebrate its 28th year in orbit, some of Hubble’s precious observation time was used to observe the colourful Lagoon Nebula. One of only two star-forming nebulae visible to the unaided eye, this spectacular stellar nursery is not quite the tranquil landscape its name suggests.(image)

Hubblecast 108 Light: Hubble finds most distant star

Mon, 02 Apr 2018 17:00:00 +0200

(image) (image) Astronomers have used Hubble to make an incredible discovery — they have observed the most distant star ever seen. The bright blue star existed only 4.4 billion years after the Big Bang. This incredible distant star allows astronomers to learn more about the formation and evolution of stars in the early Universe.(image)

Hubblecast 107: Decoding the colours of NGC 3344

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 16:00:00 +0100

(image) (image) Our eyes detect only visible light, but on board Hubble are a variety of instruments that together detect many different wavelengths of light. This means that Hubble is able to observe galaxies over a wide range of wavelengths to reveal features that would otherwise remain invisible to our eyes.(image)

Hubblecast 104: Illustrating Hubble’s discoveries

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 16:00:00 +0100

(image) (image) Hubble is best known for its stunning images and amazing discoveries. But sometimes the discoveries do not come hand-in-hand with a breathtaking view of the Universe. Raise the curtains for the artists creating impressions of the cosmos! In this Hubblecast we learn how artist’s impressions are made and how realistic they are.(image)

Hubblecast 102: Taking the fingerprints of exoplanets

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 16:00:00 +0200

(image) (image) The atmosphere of an exoplanet can reveal a wealth of information, such as the planet’s temperature, its air pressure, and whether it is suitable for life. However, studying exoplanet atmospheres is one of the most challenging tasks in modern astronomy — and a challenge for Hubble too. This new episode of the Hubblecast describes how exoplanet atmospheres are analysed and what makes it such a challenge.(image)

Hubblecast 99: Hubble’s biggest discoveries — part 2

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 16:00:00 +0100

(image) (image) To many, Hubble is best known for its stunning images of celestial objects, but among astronomers it is admired for the valuable data it delivers. Hubble 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. This new Hubblecast is the second part of an exploration of some of Hubble’s most important discoveries throughout its history.(image)

Hubblecast 98: Hubble’s biggest discoveries — part 1

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 16:00:00 +0100

(image) (image) Since its launch in 1990, Hubble has revolutionised our knowledge of astronomy. From imaging the most stunning phenomena in the cosmos, to the study of the invisible parts of the Universe, to observing the most distant objects ever seen. Hubble’s sharp eye has been at the forefront of astronomical exploration. This new Hubblecast is the first part of an exploration of some of Hubble’s most important discoveries in its almost 27-year history.(image)

Hubblecast 97: Hubble, exoplanets and the hunt for life

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 15:00:00 +0100

(image) (image) Since astronomers discovered that the stars in the sky are other suns, humanity has wondered if they are also orbited by planets and if those planets host alien life. Since the discovery of the first exoplanet only 25 years ago Hubble is among the many instruments trying to answer these questions. This new Hubblecast tells the story of what we know so far and what we can hope for in the future.(image)

Hubblecast 96: How many galaxies are there?

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 16:00:00 +0200

(image) (image) Since Edwin Hubble discovered that the Milky Way is not the only galaxy in the Universe astronomers try to find out how many of them are there. This new Hubblecast focusses on the question “How many galaxies are there?” including the new numbers achieved in 2016.(image)

Hubblecast 95: The impact of astronomy on our technological world

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 16:00:00 +0200

(image) (image) The astronomical images taken by Hubble are amongst the best known in the world. Behind these iconic observations stands a sophisticated instrument, based upon world-changing technology. Many of the technologies used and developed for Hubble and other telescopes have found their way into other fields and professions, as well as our everyday lives. This new Hubblecast shows how many of the technologies surrounding us owe their origins, or development, to fundamental astrophysics and innovation in astronomy.(image)
