As you may be aware, in May of this year, NASA launched its final mission to the HST to perform an upgrade. During this tricky mission, the astronauts replaced several key instruments with brand new ones, making the HST into an essentially brand new telescope.

Now anybody who's watched this channel for any length of time knows how I feel about the HST, I think it's one of the most important scientific instruments ever created. It has shown us views of our universe and provided context of our place within it in a way that has never before been done by anything since the invention of the telescope itself.

So it shouldn't come as any surprise that these latest images from the Hubble's upgraded cameras are among the most amazing ever taken.

Here's a sample of the latest images from the new and improved Hubble Space telescope released earlier this week.
