Hubblecast 116: Henrietta Leavitt — ahead of her time
Wed, 20 Feb 2019 15:00:00 +0100
Born in 1868, Henrietta Leavitt was an astronomer ahead of her time, whose work helped to revolutionise our understanding of the Universe. While working at Harvard Observatory, she began to study stars of fluctuating brightness. She made a crucial observation about these objects, which gave astronomers a new way to measure distances, ultimately leading to such impactful discoveries as the expansion of the Universe.

Mars and Saturn are among the most popular planets. This new episode of the Hubblecast presents the images Hubble took of these planets in summer 2018.
Hubblecast 111: Hubble sees `Oumuamua getting a boost
Wed, 27 Jun 2018 19:00:00 +0200
Astronomers have found that ‘Oumuamua, the first interstellar object discovered in the Solar System, is moving away from the Sun faster than expected. Using data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, in cooperation with ground-based telescopes, a team of researchers concluded that ‘Oumuamua is most likely outgassing — suggesting that this enigmatic interstellar nomad is a peculiar comet rather than an asteroid.
Hubblecast 110 Light: New test of Einstein’s general relativity
Thu, 21 Jun 2018 20:00:00 +0200
An international team of astronomers using Hubble has made the most precise test of general relativity yet outside our Milky Way.
Hubblecast 109: Diving into the Lagoon Nebula
Thu, 19 Apr 2018 16:00:00 +0200
On 24 April 1990, Hubble was launched into space. To celebrate its 28th year in orbit, some of Hubble’s precious observation time was used to observe the colourful Lagoon Nebula. One of only two star-forming nebulae visible to the unaided eye, this spectacular stellar nursery is not quite the tranquil landscape its name suggests.
Hubblecast 108 Light: Hubble finds most distant star
Mon, 02 Apr 2018 17:00:00 +0200
Astronomers have used Hubble to make an incredible discovery — they have observed the most distant star ever seen. The bright blue star existed only 4.4 billion years after the Big Bang. This incredible distant star allows astronomers to learn more about the formation and evolution of stars in the early Universe.
Hubblecast 107: Decoding the colours of NGC 3344
Wed, 14 Feb 2018 16:00:00 +0100
Our eyes detect only visible light, but on board Hubble are a variety of instruments that together detect many different wavelengths of light. This means that Hubble is able to observe galaxies over a wide range of wavelengths to reveal features that would otherwise remain invisible to our eyes.
