This e-book is part of a series called Hubble Focus. Each book will present some of Hubble’s more recent and important observations within a particular topic. The subjects will span from our nearby solar system out to the horizon of Hubble’s observable universe.
This book, Hubble Focus: Galaxies through Space and Time, highlights some of Hubble’s recent discoveries about the homes of stars, nebulas, and planets: galaxies—from our very own galaxy, the Milky Way, to the most distant galaxies anyone has ever seen. Hubble’s recent contributions are often in partnership with other space telescopes as well as those on the ground, and build on decades of discoveries that came before Hubble’s launch. Its findings are helping us understand how our universe has come to be the way it is today.
