High above the Earth's hazy atmosphere, the Hubble Space Telescope has literally opened up a new window on the Universe and is returning images and data that are amazing and astounding astronomers.This fully revised and updated book presents astounding pictures straight from the telescope, giving readers an exciting and unique view of the universe and revealing how Hubble keeps a watchful eye on our local space neighbourhood, as well as remote solar systems.The images show, in unprecidented detail, stars being born and in their final death throes, evidence of awsome black holes and galactic collisions, and new solar systems in the making.An expert and lively commentary by two of the world's leading popular astronomy writers complements the stunning images, making this book the essential package for anyone who wants to understand how the universe looks and works.
