The Hubble Space Telescope has been in space, looking across the universe for almost 30 years. NASA experts saw in the frame smiles.

The Hubble Telescope has stared into the abyss, and the abyss has stared back in the form of a smiling face in space found during a search for new galaxies and stars. A detailed report on the recently received materials posted on the official website of the office for Aeronautics and space research United States of America in the social network Instagram.

'WFC3 is able to view distant galaxies at an unprecedented resolution - high enough to locate and study regions of star formation within them, ' NASA said. The picture was published on the official website of the telescope. Depicted galactic cluster SDSS J0952+3434.

The sweeping arc of light that makes up the mouth appears to be pulled out of shape due to the strong gravitational forces distorting its light.

"The one below, an arc-shaped galaxy, has a shape characteristic of a galaxy that has been gravitationally stretched, its light has passed near a massive object en route to us, causing it to distort and stretch out of shape", as NASA said.

Hubbl telescope already made unique discoveries that have helped scientists to complete the "white spots" in the representation of space.

NASA partners with the European Space Agency (ESA) on the telescope, which is managed from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. It was launched on 24 April 1990.

It is named after famed astronomer Edwin Hubble who was born in Missouri in 1889. Mission Hubble is expected to be completed in 2030.
