Vanishing Points – There are monsters loose in the cosmos, giant black holes that devour matter and spit out high-speed jets of atoms. These monster black holes offer our best chance to study how the laws of physics operate under the most extreme circumstances. The challenge is that these black holes are buried in the hearts of galaxies. Hubble is the best tool we have for peering into these dense regions of space and showing us what’s really going on. In fact, we have our own monster black hole inthe Milky Way.

Still Life? – Hubble has revealed a universe of stirring beauty, one that seems tailor made to produce creatures that can view and enjoy it. Our understanding of star formation tells us that we area species created by the stars. We are, in effect pieces of the universe looking back at itself.
