In April 2013, the Hubble Space Telescope showed us a new look at an old friend in a completely different light.
Astronomers, in 1996, attempted something extraordinary. They pointed the Hubble Space Telescope into a part of the sky that seemed utterly empty, a patch devoid of any planets, stars and galaxies, this area was close to the Big Dipper, a very familiar constellation. The patch of sky was no bigger than a grain of sand held out at arms length.
Stars come in a wide variety of sizes and temperatures. Among the largest class of stars, known as hypergiants, is the star VY Canis Majoris.
IC 1101 is an ancient elliptical galaxy, the largest we've ever seen.
Join Tony Darnell and Dr. Sara Seager from MIT as they discuss the exciting discovery of planets around Kepler 62.

Fraser Cain, Pamela Gay, Frank Summers, Alberto Conti, Scott Lewis and Camilla Corona hang out at SXSW
Space fans show up at SXSW in Austin, TX, to talk about astronomy, dark energy and, of course, the Webb Space Telescope.
Here is a video montage highlighting some of the graphics just outside the NASA Experience Tent at SXSW.
The largest space telescope ever conceived by humanity is being built now, and it promises to build on Hubble's foundation to provide unprecedented glimpses into the very beginning of the universe, the first stars ever to shine, and planets around other stars.
Tony's in Austin, Texas, watching the Webb Space Telescope model get set up. And the white balance in his camera makes him look blueshifted.
