Our own generation, standing on the shoulders of those before us, can reach farther, dare greater and explore deeper into space than anyone could have dreamed 100 years ago. From Mars to the planets beyond, from distant moons to orbiting asteroids, humanity will inch farther into the horizon that Hubble revealed, and the American flag will be planted in places untouched since the beginning of time.

We already see it happening. Every month reveals a new rocket launched, technology developed or idea advanced through the power of public and private partnership, and every day — perhaps every hour — brings quiet advancements that push us closer to the cosmic ocean President Kennedy once described.

The images Hubble has captured in its 25 years are many things — inspiring, humbling, even startling. But they are also a stirring call to action — a challenge to keep discovering, keep launching, keep dreaming.
