hubba-hubba-Hubble

today the Hubble Telescope celebrates 20 years in space! named after the American astronomer edwin powell hubble, it has been called one of the greatest achievements in science. it orbits Earth every 96 minutes, 360 miles above the Earth's surface and has taken images of galaxies over 12 million light years away. i am in awe of the images taken by the Hubble, as i am sure most are.
