Hubble Heritage

The Hubble Heritage project was run by a group of astronomers and image processing specialists at the Space Telescope Science Institute from 1998 to 2016. The stated goal of the project was to use the Hubble Space Telescope's archive of imagery, augmented with new observation data, to produce aesthetically impactful and scientifically accurate color images of our universe. Although the team has since disbanded, the legacy of the program remains in the collection of rich and vibrant windows into our universe, which have inspired countless people across the world, fostering a deep and lasting appreciation of astronomy within the public. The original Hubble Heritage website is no longer available. However, a complete collection of Heritage imagery is a scroll and click away from this page.

Additionally, original content from the Heritage project is being converted into blog posts available at Illuminated Universe.
