Overview


The Hubble Space Telescope is a technological wonder of our age that has fascinated millions with its beautiful and awe-inspiring images of the Universe. Fully updated with over 40 brand new images, this stunning new edition showcases the Hubble Space Telescope’s most spectacular—and most recent—discoveries such as the water plumes of Jupiter’s moon Europa, the beautiful Necklace Nebula, hidden structure in distant galaxies, and the mysteries of dark matter and energy.  Giles Sparrow’s expert narrative brings Hubble’s fascinating story up to date, telling how it became one of the most successful scientific projects of all time; charting its origins and troubled launch in 1990, the emergency repair of its defective mirror, the advances made by four subsequent servicing missions, and the lasting impact of the most amazing astronomical instrument ever created. Hubble—Legacy Edition will take you on a journey
 through space in more than 400 glorious full-color images.
