Hubble also devised the most commonly used system for classifying galaxies, grouping them according to their appearance in photographic images. He arranged the different groups of galaxies in what became known as the Hubble sequence.

Edwin Hubble was an American astronomer who was probably one of the most important astronomers to date as he was able to discover that there are more galaxies than our own, in addition to helping discover that the universe is expanding, among many other important things. The Hubble telescope helps us see images of deep space, and helps us see new galaxies as that's one of it's main purposes, to get images of other galaxies, so naturally it makes sense to have it named after Edwin Hubble, who discovered galaxies / proved that there are many galaxies
