I will review the most important scientific achievements of the Hubble Space Telescope. I will cover topics ranging from Dark Energy to Extrasolar Planets, and from the age of the universe to Supermassive Black Holes. I will also present results of some of the most recent observations, following the last shuttle servicing mission to Hubble, and I will briefly discuss open questions in astrophysics for the next decade.
