Space: Views from the Hubble Telescope.
Book of 30 Postcards
Get lost in the cosmos as recorded by Hubble in
these 30 mind-blowing images.
Few telescopes in history have had as profound an effect on astronomical
research as has the Hubble Space Telescope. Yet its influence is not
what most people think. By and large, it has not made singular
discoveries—achievements that are its and its alone. Instead Hubble has
taken what were hints and suspicions from ground-based observations and
turned them into near certainties. It has worked in concert with
ground-based observatories and other telescopes to provide a multihued
view of the cosmos. It has forced theorists to rethink broad-brush
theories and to construct new ones that explain astronomical phenomena
in much finer detail.
