      This new Hubblecast episode looks at starburst dwarf galaxies in a time when most of the stars in the Universe were formed. New NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope observations show that dwarf galaxies played a bigger role than expected in the early history of the Universe. This episode looks at the dwarf galaxies that form stars in sudden bursts, explores just how rampantly they are creating new stars and unravels when, where and how the stars in our Universe formed.

                More space news and info at: http://www.coconutsciencelab.com - observations as far back as the late 1800s estimated the Great Red Spot to span about 41,000 kilometers at its widest point. This is wide enough to fit three Earths comfortably side-by-side. In 1979 and 1980 the NASA Voyager probes measured the spot at a shrunken 23,335 kilometers across. Now, the Hubble telescope has spied this feature to be smaller than ever before. Jupiter's Great Red Spot is a churning anticyclonic storm. It appears in images of Jupiter as a conspicuous deep red eye swirling in layers of pale yellow, orange and white. Winds inside the Jovian storm rage at immense speeds, reaching several hundred kilometers per hour. Please rate and comment, thanks! Credit: NASA, ESA, and G. Bacon (STScI) Science Credit: A.

                      This video begins with a view of the night sky before zooming in towards galaxy cluster CLASS B1608+656. It homes in first on a view of the area around the cluster from the Digitized Sky Survey (produced with a ground-based telescope), before focusing on Hubble observations of the cluster.
