Hubble Science: Planetary Missions, Fossils of our Solar System

When the Hubble Space Telescope launched, one of its main goals was to learn more about our incredible universe.

While we’re used to Hubble images coming from thousands of light-years away, Hubble is also capable of looking at objects in our solar system. Using Hubble, astronomers have been able to help planetary missions, like New Horizons and Lucy, plan out their own discoveries.
