Finding Hubbles Hidden Treasures

The Hubble telescope has produced some of the iconic images of space, and you can get lost going through the published images.

Yet there are thousands of images that have never been seen by the public. So Hubble is throwing open its archives to the public to look for interesting images.

Some assembly is required, you will need to do some processing of the image data. There is a series of tutorial to help you though.

There is even a competition with prizes (see here and here), but you have to hurry. The competition closes May 31!

More information from the Hubble site:
Hat tip to the Bad Astronomer.

What, you are still here? Hie thee to the Hubble site this instant.
