The Hubble Space Telescope’s Greatest Hits

We celebrate 26 years of the Hubble Space Telescope with these breathtaking pictures.

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched on April 24, 1990. Zoltan Levay, Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) imaging team leader, has worked on Hubble images since 1993. These are his ten favourites.

Appeared in the April 2015 issue of National Geographic as “Hubble’s Greatest Hits”. Updated in March 2016.
