Unmanned HST space observatory has produced, since 1990, more than mll;ion images of nearer sky objects, like moon, and far distant supernovas Please see explanation.


The sit-turn-shoot Hubble Space Telescope (HST) mechanically neutralizes the angular speed #6^o#/min of HST, about the Earth, by rotating in the opposite sense.

The precision in measuring angular spacing, for making images. could be as small as 0.007" = #0.000002^o#, nearly

For this precision, an image as wide as about 35 light years could be covered, at 1 billion light years of distance.
