Space: Views from the Hubble Telescope Book of Postcards


Published with: Scientific American

Few telescopes in history have had as profound an effect on astronomical research as has the Hubble Space Telescope. Yet its influence is not what most people think. By and large, it has not made singular discoveries—achievements that are its and its alone. Instead Hubble has taken what were hints and suspicions from ground-based observations and turned them into near certainties. It has worked in concert with ground-based observatories and other telescopes to provide a multihued view of the cosmos. It has forced theorists to rethink broad-brush theories and to construct new ones that explain astronomical phenomena in much finer detail. Get lost in the cosmos as recorded by Hubble in these 30 mind-blowing images.
