The Hubble Space Telescope was launched into earth orbit twenty years ago yesterday. I’m a day late but couldn’t let the date pass without mention.
Twenty years of awe-inspiring views and photos of deep space, from our own solar system to far, far beyond. The superlatives describing Hubble’s contributions to our knowledge of the universe were exhausted years ago, so I’ll leave further contemplation to you, the reader.
Happy Birthday, Hubble, and congratulations on your magnificent achievements.
