Summary "The launch of the Hubble Space Telescope in 1990 was the first time humans had sent a telescope into space, beyond the distorting effects caused by looking through the Earth's atmosphere. Aided by stunning photography from Hubble, this book describes how Hubble gathers imagery and transmits it to Earth and discusses the telescope's top discoveries. It also explores the stormy weather on our solar system's planets and moons,star clusters, nebulas and the Milky Way Galaxy, star nurseries and Hubble's glimpses of distant galaxies in deep space."-- Provided by publisher.
