The Hubble Space Telescope only takes photos in black and white. To make those beautiful space photos you’ve probably seen, scientists add the color later using a technique first developed around the turn of the 20th century that imitates how our eyes naturally perceive color.

If you want to explore more Hubble photos, a lot of information came from this site: http://hubblesite.org/
