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.
