Some measure of how our knowledge of the universe has expanded can be grasped by comparing the first grainy photographs that Daguerre took of mundane street scenes in the early 19th century and the breathtaking images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, our eyes in the skies for the past twenty years. These dazzling photos of colliding and interacting galaxies and the spiraling Perseus dwarf project the astonishing scientific and technological advancements of the Space Age. Giles Sparrow's large format Hubble pictorial stuns you with its 200 pictures of distant celestial bodies, but it grounds you with its precise, accessible text. Easy to recommend.
