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.

Voyage interstellaire

Arnaud, October 27, 2021
Magnifique ouvrage, comprenant des photos pleine pages ainsi que plusieurs "dépliants" permettant d'apprécier la beauté de plusieurs galaxies en grand format. Il y a derrière les clichés du telescope Hubble une vraie poésie que ce livre retranscrit pleinement. Un indispensable pour les férus d'astronomie, et pour ceux qui, sans l'être, souhaitent s'aventurer au délà de nos horizons terrestres.
