Astronomers have just assembled one of the most comprehensive portraits yet of the universe’s evolutionary history, based on a broad spectrum of observations by the Hubble Space Telescope and other space and ground-based telescopes. In particular, Hubble’s ultraviolet vision opens a new window on the evolving universe, tracking the birth of stars over the last 11 billion years back to the cosmos’ busiest star-forming period, about 3 billion years after the big bang. This photo encompasses a sea of approximately 15,000 galaxies — 12,000 of which are star-forming — widely distributed in time and space. This mosaic is 14 times the area of the Hubble Ultra Violet Ultra Deep Field released in 2014. Credits: NASA, ESA, P. Oesch (University of Geneva), and M. Montes (University of New South Wales)

First plasma for new machine to analyze the process that occurs throughout the universe

A millisecond burst of light on a computer screen flagged generation of the principal plasma in an effective new gadget for propelling examination into...
These Hubble Space Telescope images showcase two of the 19 galaxies analyzed in a project to improve the precision of the universe's expansion rate, a value known as the Hubble constant. The color-composite images show NGC 3972 (left) and NGC 1015 (right), located 65 million light-years and 118 million light-years, respectively, from Earth. The yellow circles in each galaxy represent the locations of pulsating stars called Cepheid variables

Fresh evidence for new Physics in the universe

By using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have precisely measured the expansion rate of the universe since it was first calculated nearly a century ago....
