teded:

On May 20, 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope sent its first image back to Earth. 

Since then, the Hubble has continued to wow us with wondrous images that, if nothing more, make us feel so small…

We’re excited to celebrate the Hubble with these stunning images from our  TED-Ed Lesson How small are we in the scale of the universe? – Alex Hofeldt
