Hubble: Window on the Universe by Giles Sparrow
7 of 8 people found the following review helpful
The book is very large and impressive, makes a great present or conversation piece.
Before I opened the book, I imagined it would be mostly images with little accompanying text. I was surprised to discover the author has included detailed explanations of every image shown, as well as background information.

The book not only contains stunning images of our cosmos, but also pages discussing and illustrating the history of the Hubble Space Telescope and the various missions undertook to maintain it. Very illuminating indeed, and attractive to anyone with an interest in science.

To summarize, I am very pleased with this purchase!
