9780810989979: Hubble: A Journey Through Space and Time
From the Publisher:

April 2010 marks the 20th anniversary of one of the most important scientific tools ever employed by humanity, the Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble is the most celebrated celestial observer since Galileo assembled his first optical instruments. Theoretical physicist and astronomer Lyman Spitzer realized that our atmosphere was an imperfect window on the universe and he was the first person to propose the idea of placing a large telescope in orbit, free of the obstacles that clouded ground-based observatories. He was the driving force behind the development of what would eventually become Hubble. Named after the trailblazing astronomer Edwin P. Hubble, the space-based telescope has revolutionised astronomy by providing unprecedented deep and clear views of the universe, ranging from our own solar system to extremely remote fledgling galaxies formed not long after the Big Bang more than 13 billion years ago. Beyond its scientific contributions, 20 years of Hubble research and imagery have had a profound impact on the world's imagination and spiritual growth. The purpose of the book is to celebrate two decades of astronomical, scientific and technological breakthroughs as told through historic and glorious photographs. "Hubble: A Journey through Space and Time" features a collection of Hubble's most important images, as well as a section on the five successful manned missions that have kept the observatory functioning. Hubble's top 20 discoveries will be described in commentaries by notable scientists. Mission astronauts will contribute their reminiscences as well.

Descripción Harry N. Abrams, 2010. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: NASA's first book on the Hubble Space Telescope marks the 20th anniversary of one of history's most important scientific tools. Here is Hubble's great visual legacy to humanity in stunning images that are benchmarks of astronomy and photography. Of the more than 100 classic Hubble images that were selected by NASA's experts, the 20 most significant are accompanied by commentaries by notable scientists. Veteran astronauts from NASA's five remarkable manned missions to maintain the telescope also contribute to this volume, making it an authoritative account of a magnificent scientific achievement. Beyond its scientific contributions, twenty years of Hubble research and imagery--ranging from our planetary neighbors to the edge of time and space--have had a profound impact on the world's imagination and spiritual growth, as documented in this inspiring book.
