Nigel’s Favourite Photos from the Hubble Space Telescope
To celebrate Hubble’s 25th Anniversary Nigel bakes a Birthday cake and discusses his top 7 photographs taken by the low Earth orbit space telescope. This amazing spacecraft is named after the famous astronomer Edwin Hubble and has been taking spectacular pictures of the Universe for 25 years.

In this episode Nigel talks about… his favourite HST imagery, from the unexpected and dramatic changes in Jupiter's atmosphere caused by comet fragment collisions, to the telescope’s most iconic image, a star factory dubbed the Pillars of Creation. An image showing a mountain of dust and gas rising in the Carina Nebula celebrates Hubble's 20th anniversary. The Cat's Eye Nebula is a dying star that has created a fantasy-like sculpture of gas shells and is one of the most complex planetary nebulae seen in space. The Crab Nebula is a supernova remnant, all that remains of a tremendous stellar explosion. Arp 142, the result of a collision between a spiral and an elliptical galaxy a whopping 326 million light-years away, looks like a celestial hummingbird. The incredible Hubble eXtreme Deep Field is an image of a small part of space in the centre of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field within the constellation Fornax, showing our deepest ever optical view of space.
