Overview

Praise for the first edition: ""Superbly well-produced. Any engagement with this 'cosmic portfolio, ' from picture gazing to deep reading, is grandly rewarded."" -- Booklist

""The book's precise descriptions and captions brilliantly complement the nearly 300 full-color Hubble images.... this is an amazing book.... Outstanding."" -- Library Journal

""A treasure map to the majesty of our universe."" -- Publishers Weekly

""A reminder that the finest telescope in space might also be the greatest camera ever created."" -- Wall Street Journal

The Hubble Space Telescope is now at the apex of its imaging capabilities yet until the publication of "Hubble's Universe," no other popular book had presented the latest pictures taken by the new Wide Field Camera 3. For his most recent book, Terence Dickinson selected a breathtaking portfolio of Hubble pictures from a library of more than 700,000 images.

Thanks to Dickinson's familiarity with Hubble's history and discoveries and his access to top Hubble scientists for insight and accuracy, the text includes facts and tidbits not found in any other book. Combined with more than 300 brilliant images, the clear, succinct and illuminating narrative brings to life the fascinating forces at work in the universe.
