What Do You Want to See?

The Hubble Space Telescope has produced any number of discoveries and stunning images of distant wonders in the universe, but there are an almost infinite number of other possibilities. Now NASA wants the public to decide among six targets the orbiting observatory could focus on as a special project during the International Year of Astronomy. The six options, none of which Hubble has previously photographed, include distant galaxies and dying stars. Readers can see all six choices and cast a vote at youdecide.hubblesite.org until March 1. The winning image will be released in early April. Those who vote will be entered in a random drawing to get one of 100 copies of the photo the Hubble takes of the winning object.
