A telescope called Hubble

The Hubble telescope was built by NASA. It is a space telescope launched in 1990. For such a long period, it remains in operation. Moreover, Hubble is one of the largest and most versatile telescopes. The efficiency of this telescope serves it with dual names, a vital research tool as well as a public relations boon for astronomy.

Images captured by NASA’s Hubble

Jupiter and its enticing moon Europa shine in a new photo by the Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble snapped the picture last month when the planet was 406 million miles away. While the images were released on Thursday. The Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore released the amazing images of Jupiter and one of its moons Europa.

A detailed look at the images

Europa, which is smaller in size than our own moon. It appears as a pale dot alongside its giant, color-streaked gas planet. A bright white splotch in Jupiter’s northern latitudes indicates a new storm barreling around the planet at 350 mph. Hubble captured a very sharp image and even minutes observations can be made.

A statement by the official

The images were released by NASA. In the second place, few statements were given by intellectual scientists. “Hubble’s sharp view is giving researchers an updated weather report on the monster planet’s turbulent atmosphere. Also including a remarkable new storm brewing.” The European Space Agency/Hubble said in a statement.
