I call it "The Telescope NASA Couldn't Kill". Each page in this book is filled with gorgeous pictures of galaxies and nebulae that span our universe. Trust me, the pictures you've seen on the Internet and in your local newspaper don't begin to show what the Hubble Space Telescope is capabable of doing. Beyond the wonderous images, Robin Kerrod and Carole Stott explain what those images are telling scientists about the nature of the universe.
