Hubble: A Journey Through Space and Time by Edward WeilerNASAs first book on the Hubble Space Telescope marks the 20th anniversary of one of historys most important scientific tools. Here is Hubbles great visual legacy to humanity in stunning images that are benchmarks of astronomy and photography. Of the more than 100 classic Hubble images that were selected by NASAs experts, the 20 most significant are accompanied by commentaries by notable scientists. Veteran astronauts from NASAs five remarkable manned missions to maintain the telescope also contribute to this volume, making it an authoritative account of a magnificent scientific achievement. Beyond its scientific contributions, twenty years of Hubble research and imagery--ranging from our planetary neighbors to the edge of time and space--have had a profound impact on the worlds imagination and spiritual growth, as documented in this inspiring book.

Meteorites: A Journey Through Space and Time
Meteorites is a lavishly illustrated full-colour reference work by two acknowledged world authorities on the subject. Written in an accessible style, the book explains what meteorites tell us about the early history of our solar system. Although it does touch on legends and anecdotes about meteorites, this pictorial survey mainly delves into why the experts value every find: each one contains geochemical clues about the origin of the solar system. Bevan and de Laeter deliver the central facts on the radioactive dating that yields ages for a meteorite's formation and its time in space and on the ground. Dating is straightforward; more debatable, and what makes meteoritics a lively science, is figuring out from a meteorite's constituent minerals and crystals the conditions of temperature and pressure during its creation.
