To celebrate its 26th year in space -- yes, twenty-six years! -- Hubble has gotten into the birthday spirit and captured a stunning portrait of the aptly-named 'Bubble Nebula.'
The disk that feeds a baby star has been precisely measured for the first time, revealing details that have, until now, remained a mystery.

NASA's infrared space telescopes have teamed together to seek out the heated glow created by the bow shocks from speedy 'runaway stars.'
