About this book

This title offers an examination of the history of astronomy from the earliest times accompanied by dramatic views of the Universe, far and near, in a series of stunning colour photographs taken by the wide-field camera of the Hubble Space Telescope. It covers the following topics - history of Astronomy, latest discoveries, Hubble Space Telescope, solar system, galaxies, nebulas, stars, black holes; including a glossary of terms. The 300 photographs, many of them panoramic views reproduced at nearly three feet across, chart the many extraordinary objects beyond our galaxy which are visible from earth but which would take many billions of years to reach at the speed of light! It also covers planets, stars, quasars, pulsars, gas nebula, dust clouds, comets and galaxies.
