Celebrating 34 Years of the Hubble Telescope

Today marks the 34th anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Telescope, back on April 24, 1990. It was sent into space aboard the Discovery space shuttle.

Even today, NASA proudly celebrates its contribution to space exploration through this remarkable telescope.

Located 589 kilometers above the Earth’s surface, the Hubble Telescope continues to explore the vastness of outer space.

It’s now believed to be time for relocation, after serving for a mere 15 years, which was initially estimated by NASA.

As we look back on its journey, named after Edwin Hubble, who discovered that the universe is expanding, the telescope has been pivotal in our understanding of the cosmos.
