As New Telescopes Prepare to Fly Into Orbit, Hubble Still Has a Big Role to Play NASA

The Hubble Space Telescope is like a time machine. That's according to astronomer Garth Illingworth, who recently spoke at the 235th Meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Even those unfamiliar with the world of astronomy have a general idea of how vital the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope is. Since its launch in 1990, astronomers have used Hubble to help explore the early universe, discover how planets are formed, capture some of the most impressive images of the cosmos and much, much more.
