Most experts are too worried about the state of Earth's climate to be looking to the stars, but now a team of astronomers have used NASA's Hubble Telescope to help reveal what kind of temperatures and precipitation are felt on an exoplanet 260 light-years away.
Astronomers using a combination of land and space telescopes believe they have, for the first time, identified a "building site" for galaxy construction, with millions of newborn stars blazing into existence.
An international team of astronomers has managed to obtain the best images of a collision between two galaxies ever seen. Light from the collision has taken a significant amount of time to reach Earth, and what we're seeing is an inter-galactic clash that took place when the Universe was half its current age.
Experts have been using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to take closer looks at potentially Earth-like exoplanets. But in searching for traces of water vapor, they've come up dry.
Experts are looking up at the stars and thinking "it shouldn't be so dark up there." New readings from the Hubble Space Telescope have shown that there is a whopping 80 percent deficit in known ultraviolet light in the Universe compared to what models imply.
Ancient star-forming "starburst" dwarf galaxies likely formed a great deal of the Universe we see today, according to new observations for NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
Astronomers wielding NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have assembled a comprehensive snapshot of the evolving Universe - one of the most colorful, vivid images ever captured.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has offered astronomers their clearest view yet of Comet ISON, which is a recently-discovered sun grazer comet that may light up the sky later this year, or come so close to the Sun that it disintegrates.
