Happy 25th birthday
NASA this week began celebrating the Hubble Space Telescope’s 25th birthday a little early by releasing an update of one of the telescopes most iconic images, that of the “Pillars of Creation” which are part of the Eagle Enbula. NASA said that this particular image is so popular that it has appeared in movies and television shows, on T-shirts and pillows, and even on a postage stamp. The updated image is just one of many newly minted Hubble masterpieces, which by the way celebrates its 25th birthday in April. Here we take a look at some of the more recent items.
