Take a look through this cosmic lens 🔎

Gravitational lensing is like nature’s magnifying glass. It can warp or magnify the appearance of distant galaxies, seen as arcs of light in this #HubbleFriday image!

It takes a team!

Go behind the scenes to Hubble's control center, where the Hubble team completed a successful switch to backup hardware on the telescope last week.

Thanks to them, Hubble is back to work, furthering our understanding of the universe: https://t.co/9Sdtm28dGz https://t.co/PdQTFrEL51

RT @NASAhistory: ⭐ or 🐛?
This photo was taken by @NASAHubble #OTD in 2006 of Protostar IRAS 20324+4057 which is in the process of growing from the dust and gas around it. Surrounding stars are blasting it with UV radiation, pushing the gas and dust into a caterpillar-like shape. https://t.co/q1kiNho5qr

“That’s one of the benefits of a program that’s been running for over 30 years: the incredible amount of experience and expertise.”

After Hubble ran into a payload computer issue on June 13, team members new and old worked to recover the telescope: https://t.co/QEUYEPhOio https://t.co/nS4nzxVlFF

Hubble's back! 🎉

After the Hubble team successfully turned on backup hardware aboard the telescope, the observatory got back to work over the weekend and took these galaxy snapshots.

Slight change of plans! We’re still excited to bring you Deep Field Week, but postponing for a bit. Watch this space for future updates! https://t.co/gbh128Kxk3

The star cluster in this #HubbleFriday image has been known by many names: Dun 538, H 3688, and Pismis 25.

Why? Different astronomers “rediscovered” it multiple times. But these days, it’s known reliably as simply NGC 6380 (NGC = New General Catalogue): https://t.co/nW9XLwZhkT https://t.co/66QVbZuurC

The Hubble Space Telescope backup payload computer was successfully brought online after a successful switch to backup hardware. Following a short checkout period, the science instruments will be brought back to operational status.

Today, NASA began a switch to backup spacecraft hardware on Hubble in response to an ongoing problem with its payload computer. This will be a multi-day event. If successful, the next step will be for science instruments to be brought back into operation. https://t.co/0QEMsatniP

NASA has identified the possible cause of the problem with the payload computer that suspended science operations on June 13 and has approved plans to switch to backup hardware. These activities will begin tomorrow, July 15.

Just in case you were feeling old today...

⭐ This star cluster is about 12 billion years old! Named Caldwell 81, it’s roughly 20,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Ara.

NASA completed a formal review to assess all operations related to Hubble’s possible switch to backup hardware, which may occur later this week. Investigation into the cause of the payload computer issue is ongoing.
