Photos Logo Photos | Slide 1 of 75: 25th Anniversary of the Hubble Telescope

The Hubble Space Telescope has been mankind's eyes into the ever-expanding universe for the last 25 years. The telescope has been responsible for capturing some of the most breathtaking images of the universe ever seen.

Join us as we take a look at the universe's stellar tapestry with some of the iconic images from the earth-orbitting observatory.

Pictured: Butterfly Emerges from Stellar Demise in Planetary Nebula NGC 6302. What resemble the creatures dainty wings are actually roiling cauldrons of gas heated to more than 36,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The gas is tearing across space at more than 600,000 miles an hour—fast enough to travel from Earth to the Moon in 24 minutes!
