The Hubble telescope was orbited in 1990, but initially had some problems due to a slightly warped mirror, but finally began to take sharp images three years later. It records images across Infared, x-ray, UV, and radio waves, allowing it the produce extreme high definition images in varying wavelengths with pin sharp clarity. Although Hubble has undergone a series of extensive upgrades to both its guidance and image sensory technology as recently as 2009, Hubble's successor, the James Webb Space Telescope may render Hubble obsolete.
