#Hubble30 In 1994 Hubble released this view of galaxy M100 taken by the Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2. Installed during Hubble’s first servicing mission, the camera had corrective optics, allowing it to image the galaxy with unprecedented clarity: https://t.co/vw0EUHIOT7 https://t.co/XRw9HAzeCb

#Hubble30 In 1993 Hubble released this view of the Cygnus Loop supernova remnant, the edge of a bubble-like blast wave from a stellar explosion. The blast wave is slamming into clouds of gas, compressing and heating them, which causes them to glow: https://t.co/IXKcbpnhvM https://t.co/DxDYYm8451

#Hubble30 In 1992 Hubble investigated the supermassive black hole in galaxy NGC 4261. This debris disk, which is 300 light-years across, surrounds the black hole. Material is heated to millions of degrees as it is pulled toward the black hole: https://t.co/meXKU9mMNw https://t.co/Sj6u4hFnry

#Hubble30 In 1991 Hubble released its first true-color image of Jupiter, capturing the planet in unprecedented detail. Since then, regular observations of the gas giant have allowed scientists to study the dynamic cloud system in its atmosphere: https://t.co/TIdAt6VJxb https://t.co/HSrQY8F9hJ

#Hubble30 For the next 30 days, we’ll be counting down to Hubble’s 30th anniversary, sharing one great image for each year of Hubble’s career. We’ll start today with an image from 1991 to celebrate Hubble’s first birthday & end with 2020, when we’ll reveal Hubble’s newest image! https://t.co/U3kA6JDrHR

#HubbleFriday Galaxy NGC 4237 is classified as a flocculent spiral galaxy. Its spiral arms are not clearly distinguishable from each other but are instead patchy & discontinuous. This gives the galaxy a fluffy appearance, somewhat resembling fluffy cotton: https://t.co/hh6jZ36q7R https://t.co/g1TcjZD5xX

Using Hubble, astronomers have discovered that the pressure from some supermassive black holes can push material away at a fraction of the speed of light. Depicted in this illustration, these outflows are the most energetic ever witnessed in the universe: https://t.co/kA525J8L6x https://t.co/DcTA3jNH5P

This scene of stellar creation, captured by Hubble, sits near the outskirts of the Tarantula Nebula. This cloud of gas and dust, as well as the many young and massive stars surrounding it, is the perfect laboratory to study the origin of massive stars: https://t.co/VhOiusmZBB https://t.co/7lovUOGrPD

#HubbleClassic An expanding cloud of gas given off by a dying Sun-like star, this planetary nebula named NGC 3132 is also known as the Southern Ring Nebula. Found in the constellation Vela, it can be seen by amateur astronomers in the Southern Hemisphere: https://t.co/pW1UCZqfDY https://t.co/90kqbiwCS4
