Nasa Hubble Space

The Hubble telescope, named after U.S astronomer Edwin Hubble, was launched into orbit in 1990. Drifting in Earth's orbit for over 16 years, Hubble stopped working and was in need of serious repairs. All the new planets, galaxies and star clusters that we see in high definition resolutions today are all made possible because of Hubble space telescope.

Even though Hubble is the most advanced and expensive equipment in our Earth's nearly circular orbit. No matter what, people still seem to think it was worth every penny. To create Hubble and send it out into its orbit it costs roughly $10billion. Hubble cost NASA a further $1.1billion just for the mission to repair Hubble. Repairs would not be necessary if outer space was not such a hostile place. The low pressure in space makes it impossible for humans to survive; spacesuits are used to stay alive during all space walk missions.

Scientist could not let the telescope go; Hubble was simply a breakthrough in science. The technology used for the telescope is highly advanced; all of the telescope's parts have been made to perfection. The conditions of space will always win until we discover what perfect materials to use, such as tools, nuts and bolts for example.

Hubble is 353 miles above our heads; the telescope takes only 97 minutes to orbit the entire earth. Hubble has opened up a new world and let us look where no man, women or child has ever looked before. Hubble has even proved that black holes really exist! Guess what there thousands of them are! The further u look the further back in time you can go, we can even see how stars are born and how long before they die. Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, everyone on Earth has access to view Hubble's amazing images. Everyone gets to enjoy Hubble's astonishing discoveries in the blink of an eye.

Space repairs had to take place, in order to keep receiving new, never before seen images from Hubble. Even though one simple little mistake could ruin the whole mission, there still was a chance to fix Hubble and scientists had to take that chance. Thankfully they did and Hubble is back unearthing new discoveries.

The telescope on the Hubble is optical. In this design, light is collected by a parabolic mirror. Once collected, the light is reflected to a hyperbolic convex mirror. Then finally reflected through a hole in the primary mirror to the eyepiece.

The on Hubble-mirrors were designed to the very highest spec necessary to operate in the UV range, as well as visible light. Hubble uses a combination of gyroscopes and thrusters to maintain and alter its position in orbit.

Is there anything sinister about the fact this is 'dark matter'?

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have discovered a ghostly ring of dark matter that formed long ago during a titanic collision between two massive galaxy clusters. The ring's discovery is among the strongest evidence yet that dark matter exists. Astronomers have long suspected the existence of the invisible substance as the source of additional gravity that holds together galaxy clusters. Such clusters would fly apart if they relied only on the gravity from their visible stars. Although astronomers don't know what dark matter is made of, they hypothesize that it is a type of elementary particle that pervades the universe.

Dark matter is either emotional pent up energy or astral energy used to hold the universe together. Either way, it's primary nature is the same as everything else, the Absolute.
