Hubble Space Telescope Photo Gallery

This false-color image made by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the Carina Nebula. Outflowing winds and intense ultraviolet radiation from the large stars shape the material that is the last vestige of the giant cloud from which the stars were born. Red corresponds to sulfur, green to hydrogen, and blue to oxygen emission. The Hubble Space Telescope marks its 25th anniversary. A full decade in the making, Hubble rocketed into orbit on April 24, 1990, aboard space shuttle Discovery. (NASA/ESA, N.
