    Description
    Hubble Space Telescope The Hubble Space Telescope is a collaboration between ESA and NASA. It's a long-term, space-based observatory. The observations are carried out in visible, infrared and ultraviolet light. In many ways Hubble has revolutionised modern astronomy, by not only being an efficient tool for making new discoveries, but also by driving astronomical research in general. A satellite is a machine that travels around the Earth. Satellites gather information in space and send it back to Earth. They can take photographs of the Universe, help to tell the weather or send pictures and messages around the world. The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a space telescope that was launched into low Earth orbit in 1990 and remains in operation. With a 2.4-meter (7.9 ft) mirror, Hubble's four main instruments observe in the near ultraviolet, visible, and near infrared spectra. The telescope is named after the astronomer Edwin Hubble. The HubbleÕs main camera can take detailed photos of stars and galaxies. Solar panels use energy from the Sun to make electricity. This powers the Hubble as it travels through space.
