Images from the Hubble Space Telescope are transforming our view of the Universe. The planets of our solar system, the birth of stars, the effects of black holes, and remote galaxies are all imaged with a clarity that can only be achieved by a telescope in space. Showcased here are sixty of the finest images from the Hubble Space Telescope. Chosen for their scientific themes and their beauty, this collection includes every kind of known object in the Universe: planets, stars, swirling clouds of gas, wheeling galaxies, remote quasars and active galaxies. This representative selection is carefully chosen to show the power of the telescope and the stunning variety of astronomical objects. Noted writers Jacqueline Mitton and Stephen P. Maran have added lucid descriptions explaining the science behind the images, and the significance of the discoveries made by the Hubble Space Telescope. This accessible summary of the Hubble Space Telescope describes its rich discoveries in non-technical terms.
