#HubbleClassic Hubble took >7,000 exposures to create this mosaic of a 48,000-light-year span across the Andromeda Galaxy, our largest galactic neighbor. The image is so detailed it resolves individual stars in the galaxy from 2 million light-years away: https://t.co/NB1jt7UcKW https://t.co/gcp23BIL8q

#AAS235 An emerging idea, bolstered by surveys from Hubble and other telescopes, is that orange dwarfs are "Goldilocks stars" — not too hot, not too cool, and above all, not too violent to host life-friendly planets over a vast horizon of cosmic time: https://t.co/K4DoBwWHw1 https://t.co/PwH0qQtT7i

#AAS235 Calculating the expansion rate of the universe is a mystery that has been one of the greatest challenges in astrophysics in recent years. A new study adds evidence to the idea that new theories may be needed to explain what scientists are finding: https://t.co/BuI6sN3yoa https://t.co/ZouJGnJo04

#AAS235 Astronomers have detected dark matter clumps around large- and medium-sized galaxies. Now, using Hubble and a new observing technique, astronomers have found that dark matter forms much smaller clumps than previously known: https://t.co/kaLWfXaEDQ https://t.co/dRz11LGPcf

This is the farthest galaxy group identified to date. Three galaxies of the EGS77 galaxy group, shown in the green circles, lie at a redshift of 7.7, which means we’re seeing them as they were when the universe was just 680 million years old: https://t.co/inao1cURGZ https://t.co/CmDHsFoTVK
