New Software Reduces Satellite Interference in Hubble Images

As more satellites are sent into space, images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope are more frequently being spoiled. In March, scientists published a study about the adverse impact of satellites on Hubble observations, and now, Hubble scientists have developed new software to mitigate the issue and remove the troublesome satellites from photos.

Giant Bubble Nebula Captured by the Hubble Telescope

Earlier this year, to celebrate the 26th birthday of its Hubble Space Telescope, NASA shot and published this gorgeous photo of the Bubble Nebula, which has a balloon-like bubble that's expanding in space from a super-hot, massive star that's 45 times more massive than our Sun. The image shows the bubble with never-before-seen clarity.
