Imagine being able to see galaxies billions of light-years away without having to set foot in a spaceship! For the past 16 years the Hubble Space Telescope has been sending phenomenal "postcards" from space. Each new image is another highlight of our awesome universe. This book takes the reader from Hubble's beginnings to the photographs taken of space 14 billion light-years away from Earth.

This 48 page hardback book is illustrated with the amazing photographs from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Each photo is more surprising than the last and each one gives scientists more information about "what's out there."
