Product Description

For two decades, the Hubble Space Telescope has been amassing discoveries that rival those of history's greatest scientists and explorers, making it the most important and productive scientific instrument ever built. These 12 spectacular lectures offer a fascinating overview of Hubble's accomplishments, drawing on one noted astronomer's Top 10 list to take you on a dazzling voyage of discovery that will feed the imagination and unlock new secrets of the universe. Professor David Meyer, who directs the Dearborn Observatory and has collaborated in 20 research projects with Hubble, has selected 10 iconic Hubble images based on their visual beauty, scientific impact, and breadth of subject matter. Each image is the focus of its own lecture, which uses the iconic picture as a jumping-off point for exploring different aspects of the cosmos that Hubble has revealed in startling new detail. As you venture from the realm of the solar system to the farthest reaches of the universe, you get a wide-ranging education in such subjects as comets and asteroids, the life cycles of stars, the evolution of galaxies, dark matter, and the evidence for the big bang. You'll enjoy an unrivaled vantage point for investigating phenomena throughout the cosmos, including a series of comet strikes on Jupiter, which produced Earth-sized plumes of vaporized debris in the giant planet's atmosphere; a dramatic hotbed of new star creation in the Eagle Nebula; and the deepest optical view ever made of the early universe.
