Pictures: Hubble Space Telescope's top pics of space
A selection of the incredible images snapped by the Hubble Space Telescope since it launched in 1990.
The telescope orbits about 350 miles above Earth. This spectacular shot shows dust coming from a red supergiant star called V838 Monocerotis.
This nightmarish gas and dust cloud was snapped in 2002. It's called the Cone Nebula because it's shaped like a cone!
The Hubble Space Telescope was launched in 1990 and has taken more than 1 million incredible images from space. This one shows towers of gas and dust as new stars are formed.
This picture is called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field and shows a whopping 10,000 galaxies of different sizes and ages. It includes some of the most distant galaxies ever seen - they're the smallest, reddest ones.
Hundreds of bright blue stars are cuddled by warm, glowing clouds. They were snapped in a neighbouring galaxy to ours.
Two galaxies are shown smashing into each other. As they merge, billions of stars are born.
This one looks a bit like a hurricane - its name is M51, but is also known as the Whirlpool Galaxy.
