2012 Hubble's Hidden Treasures Competition
|Goal||Search the Hubble Space Telescope archive for amazing images.|
|Task||Uncover stunning pictures for the whole world to enjoy.|
You are invited to the Hubble Space Telescope's vast science archive to dig out the best unseen Hubble images -- and win prizes!
Over two decades in orbit, Hubble has made a huge number of observations. But hidden in Hubble’s huge data archives are still some truly breathtaking images that have never been seen in public. The archive is so vast that nobody really knows the full extent of what Hubble has observed.
This is where you come in. Researchers need you to find and tweak Hubble observations using a set of simple online tools. If you're feeling saucy, you can find Hubble observations and then process them using professional astronomical imaging software. You can win various Apple products and goodies.
Competition ends May 31, 2012.
