From the Publisher
Celebrating the most successful space telescope ever built - and unveiling some of the most provocative views of the universe ever published - this full colour masterwork stands alone in displaying 200 spectacular images shot by the Hubble Space Telescope during its lifetime and through its final, critical servicing mission. National Geographic's Hubble: Imaging Space and Time recounts how, in just two decades, the orbiting observatory has propelled our understanding of the universe into the farthest reaches of space. Cutting edge images - so powerfully beautiful that they surprised even Hubble's creators - reveal incredible sights: a breathtaking series of light echoes from an exploding star, a colour drenched galaxy whose spiral arms cradle clusters of young blue stars, a towering expanse of unearthly light and cloud in the Omega Nebula.
