HUBBLE'S NEW IMAGES: STELLAR

NASA on Wednesday unveiled the first deep space photos taken by Hubble since its billion-dollar repair mission last spring. That work included installing two new cameras. The 10 images of galaxies and nebulas are sharper than previous photos taken of the same places by Hubble before its upgrade. The images don't just show science, but can evoke a sense of spirituality, Hubble senior scientist Dave Leckrone said. "What I see is the grandeur of creation, however it got there." All but one of the Hubble photos are from inside the Milky Way galaxy. The exception caught five spiral galaxies in a single image.
