Designed with large images and distraction-free layouts to increase the impact of Hubble’s imagery, this book gives the reader a guided tour of the cosmos through the eyes of the Hubble Space Telescope. Before Hubble was launched in 1990, no exoplanet had ever been observed, dark energy was unknown, the age of the universe was a mystery, and the most distant objects observed were just halfway back in time to the Big Bang. Hubble has been the centerpiece in a revolution in astronomy, as well as giving the public a visceral connection to the Universe through its stunning images. The images that have been selected here explore key themes in recent astronomy, including planetary science, cosmology and stellar evolution, explaining Hubble’s contributions to our understanding of the universe. Hubble's unique images – some never published before – are presented together with a mix of cutting-edge science that highlights the key discoveries of the past few years and how they fit into Hubble’s growing list of scientific achievements. It is an unforgettable view of our amazing universe.
