That's great, i'd not seen that before.

If this is what Hubble can do, just think what the James Web scope will see.

Awsome.

Can't wait.  I wonder what limitations physics puts on how much detail we can see over great distances?

I read somewhere online, that it might be possible to see the tell tale signs of Civilization on other planets.
Lights from cities ect.

If Hubble can directly image a planet in another system now, then the James Web Scope might be able to image the planet surface where cities might be.

And if that's beyond the James Web scope, then surely the next generation of space based scopes will be able to do that.

It's looking like a very real possibility that life on other planets might officially be discovered in my lifetime.

Well we are getting closer all the time.

Hubble telescope discovers water on five giant planets trillions of miles away

    The planets are all scorching ‘hot Jupiters’ that orbit close to their stars
    To detect water, astronomers watched the planets pass in front of their star
    Then looked at how much light could pass through planet's atmosphere
    However, because the planets are so hot, scientists believe they are unlikely to support life as we know it

First pics from China's Jade Rabbit rover.  Yeah that looks like the Moon ok.  I hope the science discoveries are a bit more interesting.

This is rather cool, showing how the Andromeda galaxy would appear in the sky if it was brighter.  A lot bigger than I thought as I always thought they would be mere dots  Tongue

I bet at least one person on the team has mentioned it.  Smiley

Slightly more expensive than sticking 10p in a Lunar Lander arcade machine mind.  Tongue

Partial solar eclipse tonight for out Australian friends Smiley

Quote
There will be a partial solar eclipse visible around sunset in Australia Tuesday 29 April. As much as two-thirds of the Sun will be blocked by the Moon dependent on location as northern parts of Australia will see less of the eclipse than the south.

A galaxy has thrown out a star cluster towards Earth at more than two million miles per hour.

The best thing about the article was the use of the worst photoshop ever. Yeah that looks like a star cluster.  Tongue

So Hubble has created a time lapse sequence over 4 years of an exploding star.

Hard to believe this is real and not CG and that it actually happened 20,000 years ago.   Shocked

Topical given we've just had a solar eclipse, this footage from the 5 year journey of the SDO satelite to the Sun is amazing.  Another where you would swear it was CG.  Shocked
