Today marks 29 years since Hubble was launched into space aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery! It has been unlocking the mysteries of the universe for nearly three decades. Here are a few science achievements from Hubble’s latest year in orbit. #Hubble29 https://t.co/gEC6kScLEV

Happy #PiDay! March 14th represented in numbers is 3.14, which is the first three digits in pi, a mathematical constant used to define the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Hubble observes circular objects every day, like this galaxy: https://t.co/QOhAcuPfel https://t.co/IFfVm9HeYA

#HubbleClassic This view of the Hubble Space Telescope, set against the blue-and-white backdrop of Earth, was captured by astronauts on the space shuttle after they'd finished upgrading the telescope during Servicing Mission 3B, which concluded #OTD in 2002. https://t.co/wFTkNslWqw

#Moon2Mars Hubble has studied the Moon & Mars, places where humans could be living & working in the near future. In 2005, Hubble viewed Aristarchus crater, one of the Moon's youngest & largest craters. In 2016, it captured a view of Mars when the planet was close to Earth. https://t.co/ASoKc80bHq

#HubbleFriday Long ago gravity drew these 2 galaxies together. However, actual collisions between stars are very rare as stars are very small relative to the distances between them. Eventually the galaxies will fully merge to form a single, stable galaxy: https://t.co/PwHvlSoEW1 https://t.co/5PUcXp7BCL

This illustration shows the fundamental architecture of the Milky Way galaxy. Not shown is the halo of dark matter surrounding it. A survey that combines both Hubble and @ESAGaia data measured the total mass of our galaxy at 1.5 trillion solar masses: https://t.co/gUzKNJyfLT https://t.co/HBen3rItfB

At 8:31 pm EST on Feb 28th, the Advanced Camera for Surveys suspended operations when a problem occurred during a standard boot procedure. Hubble will continue to perform science with its other instruments while the anomaly is investigated: https://t.co/RBSAtBnyBG

Hubble's visible-light image of the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51) is a #HubbleClassic. But have you ever wondered what this galaxy might look like in other wavelengths of light? Find out in this video: https://t.co/4TQ1verPUf

#ICYMI Hubble recently captured this high-resolution mosaic of the spiral galaxy M33. Learn more about this nearby galaxy, which is the 33rd item in astronomer Charles Messier's catalog of easily observable night-sky objects: https://t.co/fhUyVNa1ai https://t.co/fWKdPnHeSB

#HubbleFriday We see two dominant elliptical galaxies near the center of the image. The gravity from the galaxy cluster where these galaxies reside is acting as a gravitational lens, allowing us to view the more distant galaxies sitting behind them: https://t.co/jyaZsr9ebM https://t.co/8JISzYS8jE

This is an artist's concept of Neptune's tiny moon Hippocamp. Only 20 miles across, it may actually be a broken-off fragment from a much larger neighboring moon, Proteus! Read the full story: https://t.co/OvX2MvjYzD https://t.co/eQMN7gACD5

#HubbleClassic Astronauts captured this photo of Hubble at the end of its 2nd servicing mission, after equipping it with 2 new instruments: the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) and the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS). https://t.co/Tik67TheU0 https://t.co/zUPjtTJIK8

#HappyBirthday to Galileo Galilei who was born on this day in 1564! His observations revolutionized the field of astronomy including his discovery of Jupiter's four largest moons. This video shows 3 of the 4 "Galilean moons" as observed by Hubble in 2015: https://t.co/IRw7oGfTGH https://t.co/tsolgB9sNM
