New Hubble book released: “The Universe Through the Eyes of Hubble”

A guided tour of the Universe

4 December 2013

A new book exploring Hubble and its discoveries, written by Oli Usher and Lars Lindberg Christensen [1], has now been published by Wiley and Springer.

Entitled "The Universe Through the Eyes of Hubble", the book is a guided tour of the Universe, beginning with Hubble's history, technology, and optics, continuing on to explore Hubble's role in observing planets — both in our Solar System and beyond — stars, nebulae, galaxies, black holes, the dark cosmos, and mind-bending optical illusions. Finally, it looks to the future of Hubble: What is next for the space telescope?

Hubble's most beautiful images — some of which have never before been published or seen outside the scientific community — are displayed alongside a mix of cutting-edge science that highlights the key discoveries of the past few years, and how they fit into Hubble's growing list of scientific achievements.

The book is published in both English and German by publishers Springer and Wiley respectively. The German version is published on 4 December 2013, with the English version available on 9 January 2014.
