A refurbished Hubble Space Telescope is showing Earth the sharpest photos yet of cosmic beauty. NASA unveiled the first deep space photos taken by Hubble since its expensive repair mission last spring that included installing two new cameras and other advanced instruments. “Hubble is back in action. Together, NASA and Hubble are opening new vistas on the universe,” said astronomer Heidi Hammel.  The brilliant glow of light resembles a cosmic butterfly.  It is a stellar nursery or nebula not too far away. The astronauts who helped repair Hubble basked in the celebration of the new photos.

What I see is the grandeur of creation, however it got there.” -Dave Leckrone, Hubble senior scientist
