Arguably the single most successful scientific instrument ever built, the Hubble Space Telescope continues to dazzle us. In recent months it has been at the front lines of all the most pressing questions in astrophysics. What is the age of the Universe? How are stars born? Are extrasolar planets similar to those in our galaxy? In Hubble Revisited: New Images from the Discovery Machine , the authors of the highly acclaimed Hubble: A New Window to the Universe present a new atlas of the latest full-color images, complete with easy-to-read explanatory text. This book provides readers with an exciting, detailed, and gorgeously illustrated account of Hubbles breathtaking new discoveries.
