A Portrait of Our CosmosBook - 1997
Presents a gallery of 50 color photos of space, accompanied by explanatory text, and an introductory account of the Hubble Space Telescope's troubled history, how it works, and how it is helping us understand the origins of the universe. Among the images are a comet Hale-Bopp, a distant irregular galaxy, Galilean moons, jets from young stars, several planets, star-forming nebulae, star clusters, and supernovae. The explanations are suitable for motivated non- scientists; the photos are for everyone. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
