This book forms part of the European Space Agency's 15th anniversary 
celebration activities for the 1990 launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. 

Exquisite quality images have enabled astronomers to gain entirely new 
insights into the workings of a huge range of different astronomical objects. Hubble 
has provided the visual overview of the underlying astrophysical processes 
taking place in these objects, ranging from planets in our Solar System to 
galaxies in the young Universe.

Astronomy is fortunate in that telescopes not only produce results of great 
scientific value, but also of eye-catching beauty and artistic potential. This 
book shows the close relationship between the two at its best.
