The Hubble Space Telescope was launched into
low Earth orbit in
1990 and remains in operation. It was not the
first space telescope,
but it is one of the largest and most versatile, renowned both as a
vital research tool and as a public relations boon for
astronomy.

The Hubble telescope is named after astronomer Edwin Hubble
(below) and is one of NASA’s
Great Observatories.
