Since the Hubble Space Telescope launched into orbit in 1990, this single little 'scope has taught us many things about the universe we live in. Scientists claim it has shown us things scientists had never even dreamed of seeing. Among its many achievements, Hubble has helped scientists know the age of the universe, see "baby photos" of the universe (aww), realize that the expansion of the universe is increasing in speed, see that Pluto has more moons than we originally anticipated, and much more. In October of 2018, the 100-times more powerful James Webb Space Telescope will continue Hubble's mission and hopefully capture even more information about the universe.
