Hubblecast 57: Hubble’s hidden treasures revealed

The ESA astronomy podcast bringing you the latest from the Hubble Space Telescope

23 August 2012

In this episode of the Hubblecast, Joe Liske (aka Dr J) presents the winners of the Hidden Treasures image processing competition.

In May 2012, we asked members of the public to delve into Hubble's vast science archive to uncover pictures that had never been seen outside of the scientific community — and then to try their hand at processing the scientific data into attractive images.

This episode presents the top ten images from the several thousand submitted.
