all this week, the world will be marking the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope, an orbiting observatory that has fundamentally changed the way we see our universe. for those of us who came of age after it was launched, it's hard to imagine a time before we could peer deep into the heart of glowing gas clouds like this one, watch asteroids plow into planets, trace lightyears across structures like the famous Pillars of Creation and gaze back to nearly the beginning of time

beyond curating visuals for a party in New York on Friday, we'll be posting lots on social media using the hashtag #hubbleweek
