Since its launch is 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has provided scientists with a vast amount of quality data and has contributed to a number of important discoveries. The Hubble Deep Field Image, one of its best known, shows some of the most distant, earliest, and faintest galaxies ever seen. This video segment shows how scientists aimed the Hubble Space Telescope into a dark, apparently featureless ... Full description.

Black holes are some of the strangest objects in the universe. While the physics of these objects is not understood, and they cannot be seen directly, indirect observations have revealed for certain that black holes do exist. This animation shows an artist's conception of what it might be like to see a super-massive black hole in the center of a spiral galaxy. A background essay and list of discussion ...
