2. The Hubble Space Telescope is a robotic telescopelocated on the outer edge of the atmosphere, in circularorbit around the Earth at 593 km above sea level, with an orbital period between 96 and 97 minutes at a speed 28,000 km / h. Named as a tribute to Edwin Hubble, waslaunched into orbit on 24 April 1990 as a joint project of NASA and ESA, thus inaugurating the Great Observatories program.Cylindrically shaped Hubble weighs 11 tons. Its length is 13.2 m and its maximum diameter is 4.2 meters. The telescope can obtain images with higher optical resolution 0.1 seconds of arc.

6. First we see the Galaxy Hat, also called M 104 in the Messiercatalog, distance of about 28 million light-years it is considered the best photograph taken by Hubble
7. Now the famous nebula MZ3, called Fourmi, between 3000 and 6000 light years
8. Third is the Eskimo Nebula NGC 2392 located 5000 light years
9. Fourth, we can recognize the impressive Nebula Cats Eye
10. Fifth, here is the Hourglass Nebula located 8000 light years away, a beautiful nebula with a narrowing in its central part.
11. In sixth place we see the Cone Nebula, 2.5 light-years
12. Seventh, we find a fragment of the Swan Nebula, located at 5500 light years away, described as "a bubbling ocean of hydrogen with small amounts of oxygen, sulfur and other elements"
13. Eighth, a beautiful picture called "Starry Night"
14. In ninth place, two swirling galaxies, the NGC 2207 and IC 2163 located 114 million light-years.
15. Tenth, we see a fragment of the Trifid Nebula, a stellar cradle to 9000 light-years.

54. The words are useless when we are confronted with such monuments of light and color.We can meet with the Eagle Nebula or M16 in the constellation Serpensis a window in the middle of the starry night. On the inside, clusters of young stars are in the process of creation, creating a wonderful spectacle of gaseous emissions.
