19 Years of Heavenly Images from NASAs Hubble Telescope

by Roy Mark
The space shuttle Atlantis just released the 19-year-old Hubble, repairing and updating the venerable space telescope. NASA hopes the facelift will keep Hubble chugging along and taking additional pictures for five more years. Let's hope so because most of the first 19 years of Hubble's view into the galaxies have been nothing less than spectacular. eWEEK looks back at almost two decades of high-tech star gazing and picks its 19 most favorite Hubble images, one for each year of man's look into deep space. The images include close-up shots of Mars and Neptune, what Saturn's rings look like, and the remnants of far-away supernovas.
