Eye of the Beholder – Hubble was created to dispense with the biggest problem in astronomy, the interference caused by earth’s atmosphere. A daring rescue turned a billion dollar failure into the most stunning instrument ever created for studying the universe.

Universe in Bloom – Monet had his water lilies, Hubble has its planetary nebula, the most colourful, delicate and beautiful objects in the universe. Each of these cosmic butterflies is composed of a puff of gas, expelled and illuminated by a dying star. They come in a variety of shapes, which helps astronomers understand what the stars were doing in their final stages of life.
