Eye on the Universe

The Incredible Hubble Space Telescope

Series: American Space Missions—Astronauts, Exploration, and Discovery

By Michael D. Cole

Would you like to see a colossal storm on the planet Saturn? Or would you rather see the black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy? Is it possible to see a planet in another galaxy 13 billion light years away? Orbiting high above Earth, the Hubble Telescope captures all these amazing wonders of space. Incredible photographs are relayed back to Earth, allowing scientists and astronomers to study parts of space that were once completely unknown. Author Michael D. Cole explores the remarkable journey of launching this telescope into space and how it can unlock the greatest mysteries of the universe.
