The Hubble Space Telescope : New Views of the Universe Paperback
by Mark Voit
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 other images 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 other celestial phenomena that have electrified us all. Far more affordably 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.
