Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Hubble Space Telescope has made some of the most dramatic discoveries in the history of astronomy. From its vantage point 600km above the Earth, Hubble is able to capture images and spectra that would be difficult or impossible to obtain from the ground. Representing some of the most important scientific achievements of the Hubble Space Telescope in its first decade of operation, this collection of review articles is intended for researchers and graduate students.
