solarrsystem #OTD in 1997, STS-82 launched. It was NASA's second mission for servicing the Hubble Space Telescope. This photo shows astronauts Steven L. Smith and Mark C. Lee conducting a survey on the hand rails on HST. Credit: NASA || I would like to thank everyone who's been following me so far, and also the accounts on here who have helped me get started! You all are the real MVPs! #space #earth #shuttle #spaceshuttle #spaceshuttlediscovery #hubble #hubblespacetelescope #astronaut #earth #deepspace #astrophotography #astronomy #eva #amazing 1h

Combining X-Ray data from Chandra and optical light from Hubble makes the Cat’s Eye Nebula look more incredible than ever. This famous object is a planetary nebula that represents a phase of stellar evolution that the Sun should experience several billion years from now. When a star like the Sun begins to run out of fuel, it becomes a red giant. In this phase, a star sheds some of its outer layers, eventually leaving behind a hot core that collapses to form a dense white dwarf star. A fast wind emanating from the hot core rams into the ejected atmosphere, pushes it outward, and creates the graceful filamentary structures seen with optical telescopes. Material shed by the star is flying away at a speed of about 4 million miles per hour. The star itself is expected to collapse to become a white dwarf star in a few million years. #astronomy #catseyenebula #hubble #nebula

universe_nl The largest volcano in the Solar System and the largest mountain in the Solar System are one in the same: Olympus Mons on Mars. Olympus Mons is a shield volcano that towers to an amazing 26 km. That makes it 3 times the height of Mt. Everest. #universe #universum #universe_NL #astronomy #nature #astronomer #astronomers #deepspace #sky #star #space #stars #science #skyporn #solarsystem #starcluster #mars #sterrenbeeld #solarsystem #supernova #cosmology #information #pluto #beautiful #backgarden #hubble #jupiter #nasa #ocean #holland #cosmology #cosmos 5h

mongomike This week's #WednesdayWonders is the #Lobster #Nebula also known as the War and Peace Nebula this photo was taken by our #hubble space telescope. NGC 6357 is a diffuse nebula near NGC 6334 in the constellation Scorpius. The nebula contains many proto-stars shielded by dark disks of gas, and young stars wrapped in expanding "cocoons" or expanding gases surrounding these small stars. #space #photography #astrophotography #nasa 6h
