Happy Birthday, Hubble Space Telescope

The Hubble Telescope was carried into orbit on this day, April 24th, back in 1990, which makes it 19 years old. Now it can finally legally drink alcohol in Ontario!

The Hubble Telescope has taken countless stunning, amazing pictures of deep space since entering orbit. Check out a few of our favorites in the gallery below, and the official Hubble site for tons more. [Hubble Site via Wired]
