Overview

How did the universe begin? How big is it? What is it made of? What is its ultimate fate? These are some of the questions that scientists have been investigating with the Hubble Space Telescope since its launch in 1990. Not only is Hubble providing us with an unprecedented amount of information about the universe, but its breathtaking images—disseminated in the press and over the Internet—have excited more people around the world than any othe rimages made in the last decade.

This fabulous, poster-size paperback on Hubble's dramatic discoveries—prepared to accompany a major Smithsonian Institution exhibition that will travel across the United States for several years—presents the awesome Hubble images of nebulae, emerging stars, and othe rcelestial phenomena that have electrified us all. Far more affordable priced than previous Hubble books—and the first one prepared by the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), which operates the telescope for NASA—this dramatic and beautiful work lets readers shoot for the stars.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Incredible color photography and refreshingly understandable text re-create the wonder and magic of space. Through these fantastic reproductions, the amazing ability of the Hubble Space Telescope is defined and showcased. A prologue explains the work of the American astronomer for whom the telescope is named; an epilogue speaks to the times and worlds beyond Hubble. A cyclone on Mars; the star-forming Keyhole Nebula; the Eagle Nebula, known as the Cradle of Creation for new stars; and an amazing picture of the millions of stars at the center of the Milky Way remind readers that much of science fiction is no longer fiction. The book's large format accentuates the larger-than-life achievements of the Hubble. A crowd pleaser in any library.-Becky Ferrall, Stonewall Jackson High School, Manassas, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
