Written by two of the world's foremost authorities on space history, Hubble: Imaging Space and Time, illuminates the solar system's workings; the expansion of the universe; the birth and death of stars; the formation of planetary nebulae; the dynamics of galaxies. and the mysterious force known as "dark energy." The authors reveal the inside story of Hubble's beginnings, its controversial early days, the drama of its first servicing missions, and the creation of the dynamic images that reach into the deepest regions of visible space, close to the time when the universe began.
