Edwin Hubble: Mariner of the Nebulae

Edwin Hubble: Mariner of the Nebulae Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A biography of Hubble (1889-1953), who confirmed the existence of other galaxies besides our own, provided the first reliable evidence that the universe is pretty much the same in all directions from here, and demonstrated that the universe is expanding, thus setting the stage for the Big Bang theory. He catapulted his stature as an astronomer into social status, hobnobbing in Hollywood and with the rich and famous elsewhere. Christianson, who has already written biographies of Newton and Eiseley, describes him as egotistical and hot-tempered, but deserving of a better memorial than a crippled space telescope.
