A journey through time : exploring the universe with the Hubble Space Telescope by Jay Barbree( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbree, coauthor of Moonshot (LJ 4/15/94) and a TV space journalist, and science fiction novelist Caidin survey the universe as seen by modern astronomers. Their prose is lush, and the color photographs are beautiful. After opening with an account of the initial failure of the Hubble optical system and its repair by a skilled and daring team of astronauts, the authors drift away from the Hubble story for whole chapters at a time; the text and the photos are derived from many sources, not just the Hubble Telescope. Compared with Carolyn Peterson's Hubble Vision (LJ 11/15/95), this new book is far more readable for the general public, but it gives far less scientific and technical detail and tells disappointingly less about the Hubble Telescope's work. Recommended chiefly for public and secondary school libraries.?Jack W. Weigel, Univ. of Michigan Lib., Ann Arbor
