Hubble Space Telescope Deep Sky Survey Finds Huge Numbers of Irregular and Peculiar Galaxies
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has imaged a variety of galaxies with normal, irregular and peculiar shapes. These galaxies are so far away that they are seen when the universe was a fraction of its current age. These images are part of a serendipitous sky survey which has been conducted over the past three years by an international team of astronomers. The survey is one of the key projects for Hubble.
Hubble Space Telscope Deep-sky Survey Finds Interacting Galaxies in a Cluster
In one of the deepest celestial surveys yet made by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered a small group of previously unknown, interacting galaxies estimated to be three billion light-years away.
HST Images Compact Young Radio Galaxy
Observations with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope (HST) have given a tantalizing glimpse of the time soon after galaxies formed, suggesting that these huge Systems of stars formed over a wider span of time than once believed.
Hubble Space Telescope Sky Survey Reveals Embryonic Galaxies
A "serendipitous" survey of the heavens with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is uncovering remote and unusual galaxies never before resolved by optical telescopes on Earth. HST reveals an unusual variety of shape and structure in these distant galaxies, which previously appeared as fuzzy blobs in ground-based sky surveys. These tantalizing early results may lead to a much clearer understanding of the formation and evolution of galaxies.
