The project was complex and often faced huge setbacks but, ultimately, the powerful telescope took to the skies aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery on 24 April 1990. Look back through the decades with this the first of two special Hubble 20th anniversary Hubblecasts. And stay tuned for the next anniversary Hubblecast.'
