These are images from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope (HST). For most of my career I was responsible for producing many of these and other images and graphics at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). STScI was responsible for HST science operations. Part of that mandate was to publicize the science results through the news media, the internet and social media.
While I had a direct hand in producing many of these images, neither I nor NASA, nor AURA (who operates STScI) asserts copyright. Therefore they are free and available for anyone to use and reproduce without explicit permission.
These images, including full resolution versions are also available for download directly from STScI
as well as from NASA and ESA. Prints are not available for sale from these sources but you may contact me
if you would like to purchase prints.
