About this book

For 20 years the Hubble Space Telescope has been hurtling around our planet at 17 500 mph sending spectacularly sharp images of the universe back to Earth, but after two decades and 570 000 photographs, NASA is preparing to wind down this extraordinarily successful mission. This fully revised and updated edition of Hubble: Window on the Universe (Legacy Edition) showcases the very latest and clearest images of galaxies, nebulae, quasars, exploding stars and stellar nurseries. More than 200 remarkable cosmic images reveal the inner workings of the solar system, 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'. Hubble is a celebration of this large and versatile telescope's astonishing scientific and technical achievements. Featuring the history of the project from its origins and launch in 1990, the discovery and emergency repair of a defective mirror, the impact of subsequent servicing missions and finally, its extraordinary legacy this stunning giant volume will take you on a journey through the universe via 200 glorious full-colour images.
