We ended up going out last night, so this week's vid is a Saturday vid.
Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the launching of the Hubble Space Telescope. It's the one that sends all the gorgeous pictures of space and has basically changed how humanity understands the universe. Without Hubble we wouldn't have how old the universe is or have evidence of the Big Bang and expanding universe, we wouldn't know that dark energy is probably a thing. We wouldn't know how galaxies form and evolve, or that most of them have black holes at their centers. We wouldn't know much about how stars form and die in massive explosions called supernovae that create the elements, we wouldn't know much about how planets form. We wouldn't know how beautiful the cosmos is.
Not bad for a 25 year-old, right?
Hubble (The Song) was made by NPR. It's a parody song of Iggy Azalea's Trouble, and is just a lot of fun celebrating Hubble.
