Hubble Summary


Hubble: Imaging Space and Time by David H. DeVorkin

In the spirit of National Geographic's top-selling Orbit, this large-format, full-colour volume stands alone in revealing more than 200 of the most spectacular images from the Hubble Space Telescope during its lifetime, to the very eve of the 2008 final shuttle mission to the telescope. Written by two of the world's foremost authorities on space history, Hubble: Imaging Space and Time, illuminates the solar system's workings; the expansion of the universe; the birth and death of stars; the formation of planetary nebulae; the dynamics of galaxies. and the mysterious force known as "dark energy." The authors reveal the inside story of Hubble's beginnings, its controversial early days, the drama of its first servicing missions, and the creation of the dynamic images that reach into the deepest regions of visible space, close to the time when the universe began.
