NASA has called it the "most significant advance in astronomy since Galileo's telescope." It has been orbiting 340 miles above the Earth's surface since its launch from Space Shuttle Discovery on April 24, 1990. Since then, scientists have used its unobstructed view of the universe to make more than one million observations about planets, stars, black holes and galaxies.
