Since 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has given the world a new view of the universe. Successful beyond all expectations, the telescope is now more technologically advanced than when it was launched, thanks to the maintenance and upgrades of five NASA space shuttle servicing missions.

Hubble’s scientific contributions appear in textbooks, museums, and media sites worldwide, and Hubble imagery has influenced art, dance, music, cinema, and fashion. This image-packed, fixed-layout eBook provides an overview of the Hubble Space Telescope with sections that briefly describe its history, design, operation, and cultural impact.
