The Hubble Space Telescope is easily the most famous of NASA's Great Observatories program. Though the telescope had a troubled start, a much-publicized repair mission corrected its vision problems and paved the way for it to produce some of the most stunning images ever recorded. A large number of images have been assembled at the Hubble Heritage Image Gallery for viewing, and Ars has selected thirty of the nicest for presentation below.
