Reviews

"This is a coffee table book that will appeal to more than just space buffs. Jam-packed with breath-taking deep space images that are ultra-high resolution and taken with almost no background light. You'll need to keep reminding yourself that they're not photographic masterpieces but scientific feats that have helped answer some of the most compelling questions of time and space."
"German publisher TASCHEN, best known for luxurious art and photography books, has produced its own celebration of Hubble's 25th year anniversary since its launch into space - and it's a stunner. As a visual celebration of Hubble's 25 years in space, this one is hard to beat."
"...Hubble's images in this book will blow anyone's mind. Not just the aficionados of Astronomy, but anyone who can appreciate the beauty of a world which is still a complete mystery to us, and which, nevertheless, holds so much in store for us, mere mortals."
"...a gorgeous volume. Each image is, in the original sense of the word, awesome. There are not many books that can leave you breathless, but this is certainly one of them."
"...a special collection of images to give us some sense of place within the universe... Expanding Universe is a gorgeous volume. Each image is, in the original sense of the word, awesome. There are not many books that can leave you breathless, but this is certainly one of them."
"...Expanding Universe is a stellar celebration of the Hubble's breathtaking images and science-changing discoveries from 25 years of stargazing."
