Hubble’s Universe is a feast for the eyes with stunningly beautiful images of space and just as stunning facts about our universe.

The book will quench the thirst for knowledge and details about cosmos for science-oriented individuals and it will be entertaining and not daunting for those who only want to dip their toes into space matters. There is a fine balance between the written information and spectacular visuals; so, at the end, you don’t get tired of either one. If you would like to explore the universe and see new galaxies, meet new planets, learn about the dark matter, and see places you have never seen – all at no cost, come to Surrey Libraries and borrow the Hubble’s Universe: Greatest Discoveries and Latest Images.

The Hubble Space Telescope. No other telescope combines instant name recognition with the production of consistently spectacular images. Yet few people outside the astronomy community realize that Hubble is now at the apex of its imaging capabilities. Bestselling astronomy writer Terence Dickinson showcases extraordinary late-breaking pictures, many of which have yet to receive wide distribution as news stories or in publications outside scientific papers, and presents a breathtaking portfolio drawn from an archive of over 500,000 existing Hubble images. The accompanying text balances accuracy with accessibility, Dickinson's hallmark. And thanks to the author's familiarity with Hubble's history and discoveries and his access to top Hubble scientists for insight and accuracy, the text includes facts and tidbits not found in any other book. Combined with hundreds of brilliant images, the clear, succinct and illuminating narrative brings to life the fascinating forces at work in the universe.
