A Dazzling Hubble Collection of Supernova Host Galaxies

Spanning from 2003 to 2021, this featured collection of images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope includes galaxies that are all hosts to both Cepheid variables and supernovae. These two celestial phenomena are both crucial tools used by astronomers to determine astronomical distance, and have been used to refine our measurement of Hubble’s constant, the expansion rate of the Universe.
