Hubble's panoramic view of a turbulent star-making region
30 Doradus is the brightest star-forming region in our galactic neighbourhood and home to the most massive stars ever seen. The nebula resides 170 000 light-years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small, satellite galaxy of our Milky Way. No known star-forming region in our galaxy is as large or as prolific as 30 Doradus. View News Article (2012-04-17)


Hubble discovers water vapour venting from Jupiter's moon Europa
Europa is already thought to harbour a liquid ocean beneath its icy crust, making the moon one of the main targets in the search for habitable worlds away from Earth. This new finding is the first observational evidence of water vapour being ejected off the moon's surface. View News Article (2013-12-13)


Starburst Galaxy Showers The Universe
When a galaxy known as M82 had a near-miss with its neighbour, it set off an explosive burst of star formation that sent plumes of hot gas tens of thousands of light years into space. Now a team of UK and American astronomers has discovered that these gas clouds are like the jets from a high pressure shower head. M82 - which astronomers call a "starburst galaxy" - is located at a... View News Article (2004-05-21)


Most-distant galaxy candidate found
