Dear Student

Hubble Space Telescope
Hubble has been observing from Earth orbit for more than 19 years.
Hubble, the first of NASA's Great Observatories, has revolutionized astronomy, providing stunning images of countless cosmic objects and giving astronomers their most distant views of the universe with the Hubble Deep Field and Ultra Deep Field
Hubble has shed light on the scale of the universe, the life cycle of stars, blackholes, and the formation of the first galaxies

Chandra X-ray Observatory
The third of NASA's four Great Observatories, Chandra is the world's most powerful X-ray telescope.
Chandra, named for Indian-American physicist Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, examines the X-rays emitted by some of the universe's strangest objects, including quasars, immense clouds of gas and dust and particles sucked into black holes.​​​​​​​

Spitzer Space Telescope
Spitzer was the last of the Great Observatories to be launched and gathers the infrared radiation emanating from cosmic objects, including faraway galaxies, blackholes and even comets in our own solar system​​​​​​​

Kepler Mission
NASA's new planet-hunting telescope that will specifically be searching for other Earth-like planets in the galaxy. Kepler will be looking for characteristic variations in the light from a pre-selected target group of 100,000 stars.​​​​​​​
