This large-format, full-color volume stands alone in revealing the most spectacular images from the Hubble Space Telescope, from its launch to the very eve of the 2008 final shuttle mission to the telescope.
A wealth of astonishing images leads us to the very edge of known space, setting the stage for the new James Webb Space Telescope, scheduled to launch in 2018.
Find the stunning panoramic of Carina Nebula, detailing star birth as never before; a jet from a black hole in one galaxy striking a neighboring galaxy; a jewel-like collection of galaxies from the early years of the universe; and a giant galaxy cannibalizing a smaller galaxy.
This is a great reference. Hubble photos are stupendous. Will have to see how much better Hubble's replacement will be and I look forward to comparing. It would be nice to have the photos in the atlas size like an "Atlas of the heavens".
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
