Hubble Anniversary Book

This book forms part of the European Space Agency’s 15th anniversary celebration activities for the 1990 launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Exquisite quality images have enabled astronomers to gain entirely new insights into the workings of a huge range of different astronomical objects. Hubble has provided the visual overview of the underlying astrophysical processes taking place in these objects, ranging from planets in our Solar System to galaxies in the young Universe.

Astronomy is fortunate in that telescopes not only produce results of great scientific value, but also of eye-catching beauty and artistic potential. This book shows the close relationship between the two at its best.

The book is 120 pages. 30 x 25 cm (coffee-table), full-colour, printed on high-quality glossy paper. It includes a copy of the DVD. It has already been translated into Chinese, Portuguese, German and Finnish.

The book can for instance be bought from Armagh Planetarium, or from us .
