  1. Hubble

    Hubble is a lunar crater that lies very near the east-northeastern limb of the Moon. At this location it is viewed almost from the side from Earth, and the visibility of this feature is affected by libration. It lies to the north of the Mare Marginis and northeast of the crater Cannon. About one crater diameter to the north-northeast is Lyapunov. The rim of this crater is worn and eroded, and it has a somewhat irregular edge in places. The inner wall is wider along the western side, where the rim has a slight outward bulge. The most intact portion of the rim lies along the eastern side, and the inner wall of this face is visible from the Earth. The interior floor has been resurfaced by basaltic lava, giving it a lower albedo than the surrounding terrain. It is, however, not quite as dark as the lunar mare to the south. This surface is relatively level and featureless, with only a few tiny craterlets. It lacks a central peak, but a pair of small craterlets lies near the midpoint.

Examples of Hubble in a Sentence

  1. Ray Villard:

    They’ll be talking about Hubble 500 years from now, hubble is like our modern-day Copernicus. With the new higher-definition images, a whole new generation of people can intimately share the wonders of Hubble’s discoveries. It’s the people’s telescope.

  2. Heidi Hammel:

    By monitoring auroral activity on exoplanets, we may be able to infer the presence of water on or within an exoplanet, now, it's not going to be easy — it's not as easy as Ganymede and Jupiter, and that wasn't easy. It may require a much larger telescope than Hubble, it may require some future space telescope, but nevertheless, it's a tool now that we didn't have prior to this work that Joachim and his team have done.

  3. February NASA:

    These clouds are so thick that even Hubble’s infrared capability could not penetrate them.

  4. Vanna Bonta:

    When we can build something like the Hubble telescope and fathom images of this vast cosmos of which we are a part, it really gives pause to wonder what and who we are within a larger framework than linear adventures at the shopping mall and taxes.

  5. Kotaro Kohno:

    The light from these galaxies is very faint with long wavelengths invisible to our eyes and undetectable by Hubble, so we turned to the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array( ALMA), which is ideal for viewing these kinds of things. I have a long history with that facility and so knew it would deliver good results.
