Hubble Is A Joint Project From NASA

And the European Space Agency. "The project highlights Hubble's potential to image faint, previously unknown asteroids

And Represents A New Approach

To finding asteroids in astronomical archives spanning decades, which may be effectively applied to other datasets," the ESA Hubble team said in a statement on Friday.

The Zooniverse platform Hosted The

Hubble Asteroid Hunter project. Over 11,400 volunteers combed through Hubble images taken between 2002 and 2021, identifying the curved trails of asteroid in those observations. 

That Effort Helped To Train
