Description
A celebration of 30 years of discovery and spectacular images from the Hubble telescope by acclaimed astronomer Jim Bell. As the telescope enters the last phase of its operational life, an expert history explores the ground-breaking engineering and human endeavour that has enabled the instrument to chronicle and enlarge our understanding of the distant universe in time. Iconic colour photographs include the Pillars of Creation, 1995; dramatic dust and gas columns in the Eagle Nebula; gamma ray bursts from 2013; the Cat's Eye Nebula, 2002; and Pluto in 2010. With a Foreword by Astronaut John M. Grunsfeld, a veteran of three of the five in-space Hubble servicing missions.
