Over the years, Hubble video producer Paul Morris has had the amazing opportunity to interview some of the brightest minds in astrophysics, and some of the coolest astronauts and people in the world.

As a rule, he always asked every single person this one question. Every single time:

“What is your favorite Hubble image?”

He began to see a pattern in their answers.
