Thanks for that link. Now I feel really insignificant.

From many of those pictures, it seems that Hubble has gazed so far back in time, that we can actually see into a 70's discotheque.

Much like clouds on earth, I always see familiar shapes in the galactic kind. Sometimes they resemble a mountain range, and other times they take on a more organic quality, like some huge worm drifting in space. Although, it has to be said, that we can barely appreciate or comprehend the size of these gas clouds; only having mountains on earth as our reference for emense sizes.

BTW, the second picture on that film had a cloud in the top left that looks like it is giving the finger! God does have a sense of humour.

Bubble Bursts For

Pioneer Hubble

By Tim Radford

Science Editor

The Guardian - UK

2-8-5

It watched the broken pieces of a comet crash, one after another, into the clouds of Jupiter. It peered at a dark patch of sky no bigger than a grain of sand at arm's length for 150 orbits and spotted so many galaxies that cosmologists had to double their estimates of the size of the universe.

It confirmed the existence of black holes and caught stars in the act of formation. Its astonishing images have become the stuff of poster art and gallery displays.

But the Hubble space telescope, which orbits the planet 360 miles above the clouds and atmosphere, could soon plunge to Earth and perish in a fireball over the Pacific Ocean.

Nasa chiefs last night confirmed that their budget rise for 2006 would not be enough to cover the cost of a repair mission to the 14-year-old instrument. The US space agency will have $16.5bn (£8.9bn) to spend, but only $75m to spend on Hubble. This is just about enough for a robot spacecraft that could rendezvous with the world's most famous telescope and nudge it back into the deadly embrace of the planet's gravitational field.

The decision is likely to infuriate astronomers: last year the US National Academy of Sciences urged a final visit by a team of astronauts to Hubble, to replace parts likely to wear out in a year or two.

Hubble was launched in a blaze of glory that turned to tragicomedy: when the telescope returned its first snaps of the heavens, researchers discovered faulty curvature in its 2.4 metre mirror.

In 1993, astronauts went aloft and fitted the equivalent of spectacles, and suddenly Hubble revealed its astonishing capacity: it could resolve galaxies 13bn light years away, at the edge of space and time.

But techniques in Earth-based astronomy advanced, and British astronomers now use a telescope in Hawaii twice as powerful as Hubble.

Nasa began looking for ways to save money. "We have been as eager as the Congress to try to save the Hubble, but at the end of the day what we're trying to save is the science related to Hubble," said Nasa's controller, Steve Isakowitz.

Amazing slide show! Thanks for posting that link *smiles*. I agree that they should keep the Hubble up and fully functional until a replacement is found. There is so much that we can learn, i t would be a waste to trash the Hubble.

alien.gif This is a real Tragedy to our Universe being Explored more, if they refuse to update or Fix the Hubble Telescope, we have learned so much from the Pictures it sent back, and think of the knowledge we have gained and they want to Trash it? There has to be someway we can Save the Hubble, from being distroyed! Hubble, an be just as good as the one in Hawaii if updated ! What say you???? Zepher_one!
