Despite five repair missions it has gone through, the Hubble telescope has made it to the age of 30. NASA already share the stunning photo it took on its birthday back in April, but the celebration isn’t over yet. To mark Hubble’s 30th anniversary, NASA has added 30 more breathtaking photos to the already impressive collection.
NASA’s gallery is full of astonishing photos of space. If you like them as much as I do, you can now get the selection of astronomy photos to your iPhone every day. NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) project is now available as an iOS 14 widget, all thanks to developer Mark Hambly.
We have all seen space images, and if you ask me, they’re all awe-inspiring. But have you ever wondered what these photos would sound like? In its recent project, NASA has created a synesthetic experience by giving sound to astronomical images. And they sound just as astonishing as they look!
Considering the current events, no place in the world seems safe to me. I’ve been fantasizing about immigrating to another planet, and this video from ElderFox Documentaries makes it possible. Well, at least virtually. It takes you across the surface of Mars, and it’s the first time that footage from the red planet has been rendered in 4K. It’s not only impressive and calming to watch, but you’ll learn some interesting information about Mars and NASA’s rovers.
Timelapse videos that capture long time periods take plenty of photos and time to make. But NASA took this to a whole new level. Using 425 million high-resolution images, NASA created a timelapse that shows an entire decade of our Sun’s life.
On 24 April 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope started its journey, when the space shuttle Discovery and its five-astronaut crew took it from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It was deployed into Earth orbit a day later and has been taking magnificent photos of space ever since. The photo Hubble took on its 30th birthday is nothing less impressive than others, and it shows the incredible beauty of starbirth.
