Expanding Universe. The Hubble Space Telescope

Expanding Universe. The Hubble Space Telescope


Time, Space, and a Telescope

Hubble’s most magnificent images

With investigations into everything from black holes to exoplanets, the Hubble Telescope has changed not only the face of astronomy but also our very sense of being in the universe. On the 30th anniversary of its launch into low-earth orbit, this updated edition of Expanding Universe presents 30 brand new images, unveiling more hidden gems from the Hubble’s archives.

Ultra-high resolution and taken with almost no background light, these pictures have answered some of the most compelling questions of time and space while also revealing new mysteries, like the strange “dark energy” that sees the universe expanding at an ever-accelerating rate.

The collection is accompanied by an essay from photography critic Owen Edwards and an interview with Zoltan Levay, who explains how the pictures are composed. Veteran Hubble astronauts Charles F. Bolden, Jr. and John Mace Grunsfeld also offer their insights on Hubble’s legacy and future space exploration.

Wallpaper als Buch

David,29 ottobre 2021
Bekannt als Hintergrund für Macs sind die Bilder des Hubble-Teleskops etwas für Liebhaber des Weltraums oder der Schönheit des Universums.

Wahnsinns Bilder

Alexander,29 ottobre 2021
Kein Wunder, dass dem früheren Kptn. Kirk bei seinem Flug ins Weltall die Tränen gekommen sind. Die unendlichen Weiten sind atemberaubend und machen einem immer wieder klar, wie klein der Mensch doch ist. Das Buch gibt in wundervoller Weise einen sehr tiefen Einblick in fremde Galaxien und ist von der Qualität her genau so, wie man es von TASCHEN erwartet: Überragend! Klare Kaufempfehlung.

A must have

Any word is insignificant in the presence of such breath-taking giant book.
