NASA's Hubble Space Telescope returned to full science operations this week and captured images of two unusual galaxies, NASA said.

The telescope's operations had been suspended for a month following a computer anomaly.

NASA released Hubble's images of a pair of interacting galaxies in the southern hemisphere, named ARP-MADORE2115-273 and ARP-MADORE0002-503.

The Hubble was launched in 1990 and has become a crucial tool in space exploration, observing stars and galaxies from its orbit 350 miles (563 km) above Earth.
