Twenty-five years ago, NASA launched one of the most ambitious experiments in the history of astronomy: the Hubble Space Telescope. This Friday is Hubble’s 25th anniversary. In honor of this anniversary, NOVA tells the remarkable story of the telescope that forever changed our understanding of the cosmos. Airs at 9 p.m. April 22 on PBS.

That’s tonight, folks. It’s Channel 13 where I live, and I plan to be watching. And recording.
The pictures here are from the HST, and they’re just a sample of the many thousands of wonderful pictures it’s taken since it went to space aboard a shuttle.
You know this is going to be spectacular!
