Celebrating 30 years of Hubble images


Today’s Video of the Day from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center features a never-before-seen look at the fiery starbirth of two nebulas, NGC 2020 and NGC 2014.

NASA released the stunning new video in honor of the 30th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope. 

Thomas Zurbuchen is the Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA.

“Hubble has given us stunning insights about the universe, from nearby planets to the farthest galaxies we have seen so far,” said Zurbuchen. 

“It was revolutionary to launch such a large telescope 30 years ago, and this astronomy powerhouse is still delivering revolutionary science today. Its spectacular images have captured the imagination for decades, and will continue to inspire humanity for years to come.”
