Awesome pics..

The first snapshots from the refurbished Hubble

Learn about this story in the Star Witness, a science newspaper available on our sister site, Amazing Space.
showcase the 19-year-old telescope's new vision. Topping the list of exciting new views are colorful multi-wavelength pictures of far-flung galaxies, a densely packed star cluster, an eerie "pillar of creation," and a "butterfly" nebula. With its new imaging camera, Hubble can view galaxies, star clusters, and other objects across a wide swath of the electromagnetic spectrum, from ultraviolet to near-infrared light. A new spectrograph slices across billions of light-years to map the filamentary structure of the universe and trace the distribution of elements that are fundamental to life. The telescope's new instruments also are more sensitive to light and can observe in ways that are significantly more efficient and require less observing time than previous generations of Hubble instruments. NASA astronauts installed the new instruments during the space shuttle servicing mission in May 2009. Besides adding the instruments, the astronauts also completed a dizzying list of other chores that included performing unprecedented repairs on two other science instruments.

Really cool shots. I'm very glad they did not let Hubble fall. A very good use of resources.

I don't want to sound like a sap, but some of these images are so beautiful they bring tears to my eyes.

I don't claim to have it all figured out, and I don't believe I've ever heard anyone who does, but I can't believe that there's not some Architect or Designer out there . . .

Droog, That's what I think about when I see these pictures, the creator..

I agree, I don't think we need to put a man on Mars, an intelligent robot OK. But the Hubble is money well spent in my opinion. I think the next and last upgrade for the Hubble is scheduled for 2014.

JPB, I thought it was going to be another CFR YouBube flick. That was a really good good perspective on the size of the universe. Thanks, enjoyed it.

I agree - that's actually something that brought me to my faith - not simply the beauty of the cosmos, but the fact that we find it beautiful....i don't see any propagation of the species type wiring reason that we'd find something billions of miles away (and actually billions of years ago) so beautiful.
