Hubble (1889-1953), the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a large, space-based observatory which has revolutionized astronomy by providing unprecedented deep and clear views of the Universe, ranging from our own solar system to extremely remote fledgling galaxies forming not long after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago.

Water on Mars: Now a reality, NASA Confirms findings.

NASA has confirmed that the Phoenix Mars Lander has identified water on Mars, while heating samples of soil it found in a trench. This is the first real instance of confirmed water samples on mars, and thus pave the way for finding positive signs of life on Mars, because water is a requirement for life as we know it. Heating of samples and resulting vapor led scientists to conclude that the rover had identified water for the first time.
