About this book

In the third edition of this title, 32 additional pages are revised throughout and completely redesigned.

The Hubble Space Telescope circles Earth, free of the distortions caused by our atmosphere, revealing day by day a universe of amazing complexity, mystery and staggering beauty. This revised edition of "Hubble: The Mirror on the Universe" features 300 stunning images, including more than 80 new full-color photographs that reveal astonishing and previously unseen details of what once appeared only as gray blurs or dots on a star map. The images show, in unprecedented detail, stars being born and in their final death throes, evidence of awesome black holes and galactic collisions, and new solar systems in the making. An expert and lively commentary by two leading popular astronomy writers complements the stunning images, making this book the essential package for anyone who wants to understand how the universe looks and works.
