Book Magazine

Spectacular photographs taken during the past decade by the Hubble Space Telescope make this a visually stunning introduction to outer space. Simon writes with unusual clarity about the photographs and their subjects, drawing comparisons that will help readers begin to understand concepts such as light-years, black holes and supernovas. The birth of stars, a butterfly nebula and colliding galaxies provide some of the most beautiful shots, which are enhanced by the book's elegant design.
