30 years ago on 24th of April 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope was deployed in a low earth orbit by the Space Shuttle Discovery. Since then the Hubble has delivered a remarkable view of the universe, both for astronomers and the general public.
Every year the Hubble telescope takes an image to celebrate its anniversary and this year it took a portrait of two colourful nebulae – the NGC 2014 and NGC 2020. They are an amazing vision of the beauty our universe holds. Happy anniversary Hubble!
