High above the Earth's hazy atmosphere, the Hubble Space Telescope has opened up a window on the universe and is returning images and data that are amazing and astounding astronomers. It is showing sarts being born and in their final death throes. It is finding evidence of awesome black holes and new solar systems in the making. And it is peering deeper into space that ever before, looking back to a time when the universe itself was newborn. A lively commentary accompanies the stunning images in this book.About the Author:
