2015 marked the 25th anniversary year of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope, an event that has propelled us into the Golden Age of Astronomy and brought us closer than ever to answering the most perplexing questions – what are the origins of the universe? And are there other worlds like our own, full of life?
The Hubble Space Telescope has led an army of new high-tech telescopes that is peering deep into the universe, returning data that scientists are using within models to explain how galaxies took shape, how stars live and die, and how the universe set the stage for life.
The Age of Hubble brings the most cutting-edge findings of modern astronomy to life with state-of-the-art animation, informed by supercomputer simulations of cosmic events. Explore the formation of a super-massive black hole 350 million lightyears away; admire the stunning beauty of the Orion nebula; and discover what the stars tell us about our place in the stretch of time and space.
In this new age of astronomy, scientists are testing topics from the origin of life to Einstein’s theories.
