Three and a half centuries after Galileo’s revolutionary explorations of the night sky, the Hubble Space Telescope has lifted astronomers ever closer to the stars, revealing sights that previously existed only as hypotheses. For more than two decades, observational astronomers have used Hubble to make and confirm a range of discoveries—from the existence of dark matter to the age of the universe. Accompanying each of this calendar’s twelve amazing Hubble images is a concise description of the celestial phenomenon depicted. Important dates in the history of space exploration, as well as current astronomical events, are noted throughout.
