The Telegraph of London has put together a nice slideshow of the Hubble Space Telescope's coolest pictures. Can you believe Hubble is almost 20 years old?

On the 8 a.m. news, I mentioned that NASA touches up the pictures from Hubble, adding those brilliant colors.  A viewer sent me a note, saying it's not just to make the images look nice.  The colors represent different elements in the object.  For instance, he says, red denotes iron.
