The Hubble was the first major optical telescope to be placed in space and has been showing us incredible photos of the universe 24 hours a day, seven days a week since April 1990.

This year, NASA is celebrating the Hubble Space Telescope's 30th year in orbit, and even though most of the celebrations have been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, you can still explore some of its amazing contributions online.

As part of the celebrations, NASA launched a place for you to see a picture of the cosmos on your birthday. All you have to do is select your birthday month and day and the generator will reveal a photo from its collection.

It is so interesting to see what was going on in the universe on your last birthday, granted you may not understand it all, but at least it still looks cool!
