The Hubble Space Telescope has given us so many beautiful images over the last three decades. Here’s an equally beautiful shot of the telescope itself, in all its space-worthy humility. From Slashgear:
“It was revolutionary to launch such a large telescope 30 years ago, and this astronomy powerhouse is still delivering revolutionary science today,” Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for science at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., said of the instrument. “Its spectacular images have captured the imagination for decades, and will continue to inspire humanity for years to come.”
