Have you ever wished you could travel back in time? Or visit a galaxy light-years away? Or see a star being born? The Hubble telescope has allowed scientists to do just that. The Hubble’s dazzling images have transformed astronomy, shedding light on the deepest mysteries of the cosmos, sparking new discoveries and turning speculation into fact. Its gaze has helped astronomers find new galaxies, look back in time almost to the Big Bang, and verify the existence of dark energy, the mysterious force that is causing the expansion of the universe to accelerate. Through the eye of the Hubble, Elaine Scott skillfully guides readers along the evolution of our universe, investigating a question that was once unanswerable: “Where did we come from?”
"Gasp-worthy photographs should fire up the most sluggish imaginations....For [science fiction fans] this title should be essential reading."—The Bulletin
"The book is filled with the amazingly clear, color-enhanced images of planets, stars, and nebulae...but Scott also explains the less showy but significant science made possible by the Hubble’s instruments."—The Horn Book
"Scott’s tribute will leave readers with both stars in their eyes and a real appreciation for one of the most significant technological wonders of the past century."—School Library Journal
