 Hubblecast 92: 26th anniversary | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 280

On 24 April 1990, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope was sent into orbit aboard the space shuttle Discovery. Now it is celebrating its 26th anniversary. As in the last years Hubble spent a modest portion of its observing time to observe a special chosen object. This year, Hubble re-observed an object, it already captured over 15 years ago: NGC 7635, better known as the Bubble Nebula.

 Hubblecast 91: The future of Hubble, part 1 | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 425

In April 2016 the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope celebrates its 26th year in orbit. During this time the telescope has made many remarkable discoveries. But what comes next? In this first episode about the future of Hubble scientists and staff share with us their view on what Hubble still has to offer.

 Hubblecast 90: The final frontier | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 383

Since October 2013 the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has been observing some of the most massive structures in the Universe -- galaxy clusters. Using the magnification effect caused by their mass, Hubble can look deeper into the Universe than ever before. In this new Hubblecast, Dr J talks about the goals and the achievements of this campaign, called the Frontier Fields programme.

 Hubblecast 89: Edwin Hubble | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 358

When you hear the name "Hubble", you probably think of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. But, decades before the Hubble Space Telescope, Dr Edwin Powell Hubble revolutionised the field of astronomy. In the newest Hubblecast, we take a look at the life and work of this brilliant American astronomer for whom the Hubble Space Telescope is named.

 Hubblecast 88: Mysterious Ripples Found Racing Through Planet-forming Disc | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 282

Using images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and ESO’s Very Large Telescope, astronomers have discovered unique and totally unexpected structures within the dusty disc around the star AU Microscopii.

 Hubblecast 87: The many mysteries of Pluto | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 342

Before NASA's New Horizons probe flew past Pluto in July 2015, almost all of the information scientists had about this mysterious dwarf planet came from observations made by Hubble. In the newest episode of the Hubblecast, we present Hubble's discoveries in the Pluto system and explore how Hubble will continue to advance knowledge of this distant, icy world following New Horizons' flyby.

 Hubblecast 86: The wings of the Twin Jet Nebula | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 313

This Hubblecast explores the wings of Twin Jet Nebula which were observed and studied by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

 Hubblecast 85: Ode to Hubble | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 602

To celebrate Hubble's 25th birthday ESA/Hubble asked the public to produce and submit short videos illustrating how Hubble has inspired them. This new Hubblecast episode presents the two winning videos. The episode also introduces us to the creators of the videos and they explain how they produced the videos and the inspiration for creating them.

 Hubblecast 84: A starry snapshot for Hubble’s 25th | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 289

This Hubblecast explores the new image of star cluster Westerlund 2, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space telescope and released to celebrate its 25th year in orbit.

 Hubblecast 83: A cosmic double act — Hubble meets James Webb | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 579

As Hubble enters its 25th year in orbit, with celebrations planned around the world for its anniversary on 24 April 2015, this Hubblecast celebrates the relationship that the telescope will have with its future colleague, the James Webb Space Telescope.

 Hubblecast 82: New view of the Pillars of Creation | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 371

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has revisited one of its most iconic and popular images: the Eagle Nebula’s Pillars of Creation. This time Hubble has not just one image for us, but two: as well as the new visible-light image the telescope used infrared light to produce a second breathtaking picture of the region. Between them these images show the pillars in more detail than ever before. In this Hubblecast we explore the different ways in which Hubble, and other telescopes, have captured this iconic object.

 Hubblecast 81: Ode to Hubble | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 319

Hubble has achieved an extraordinary amount in its lifetime and 2015 will mark 25 years since its launch. The year 2015 will be filled with Hubble-related activities for you to enjoy and, most importantly, get involved with. In this Hubblecast we look back at some of the ways in which you have shown your appreciation for Hubble in the past and let you in on what the Hubble 25 celebrations have to offer. More information on the 25th anniversary can be found on the dedicated web pages.

 Hubblecast 80: The riddle of the missing stars | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 317

New observations of four globular clusters in the Fornax dwarf galaxy have called into question one of the leading theories about how these clusters form. In this episode we explain the mystery behind these objects and how it is deepened by these new findings.

 Hubblecast 79: Q&A with Dr J part 2 | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 731

In the summer of 2014 we asked the public to send us their Hubble- and astronomy-related questions, and the response was incredible! In this episode Dr J answers a selection of the questions about science related to Hubble. These range from questions about what Hubble has achieved within the Solar System, to the science it has uncovered at the very edge of the observable Universe. In this episode Dr J explains some of the key concepts, and biggest misconceptions, about the Universe we live in.

 Hubblecast 78: Q&A with Dr J part 1 | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 724

Last month we asked the public to send us their Hubble- and astronomy-related questions, and the response was incredible! In this episode Dr J answers a selection of the questions that were specifically about Hubble itself. These range from where Hubble is and how it avoids crashing into space debris, to what the future holds for Hubble, how its life will end, and what will take its place. Watch out for the next episode in which the more science-related questions will get their turn.
