 Hubblecast 109: Diving into the Lagoon Nebula | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 247

On 24 April 1990, Hubble was launched into space. To celebrate its 28th year in orbit, some of Hubble’s precious observation time was used to observe the colourful Lagoon Nebula. One of only two star-forming nebulae visible to the unaided eye, this spectacular stellar nursery is not quite the tranquil landscape its name suggests.

 Hubblecast 108 Light: Hubble finds most distant star | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 71

Astronomers have used Hubble to make an incredible discovery — they have observed the most distant star ever seen. The bright blue star existed only 4.4 billion years after the Big Bang. This incredible distant star allows astronomers to learn more about the formation and evolution of stars in the early Universe.

 Hubblecast 107: Decoding the colours of NGC 3344 | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 287

Our eyes detect only visible light, but on board Hubble are a variety of instruments that together detect many different wavelengths of light. This means that Hubble is able to observe galaxies over a wide range of wavelengths to reveal features that would otherwise remain invisible to our eyes.

 Hubblecast 104: Illustrating Hubble’s discoveries | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 453

Hubble is best known for its stunning images and amazing discoveries. But sometimes the discoveries do not come hand-in-hand with a breathtaking view of the Universe. Raise the curtains for the artists creating impressions of the cosmos! In this Hubblecast we learn how artist’s impressions are made and how realistic they are.

 Hubblecast 103: Hubble observes source of gravitational waves for the first time | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 259

Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have observed a visible counterpart to gravitational waves for the first time: a kilonova from merging neutron stars.

 Hubblecast 102: Taking the fingerprints of exoplanets | File Type: video/x-m4v | Duration: 239

The atmosphere of an exoplanet can reveal a wealth of information, such as the planet’s temperature, its air pressure, and whether it is suitable for life. However, studying exoplanet atmospheres is one of the most challenging tasks in modern astronomy — and a challenge for Hubble too. This new episode of the Hubblecast describes how exoplanet atmospheres are analysed and what makes it such a challenge.
