Images from space reveal “New Mysteries”
These most breathtaking images of deep space were taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. It’s been 25 years since Hubble first launched into low-earth orbit and it remains operational today. It can take extremely high-resolution images with negligible background light, and hence, has recorded some of the most detailed visible-light images ever, giving us an unprecedented view of space.
“Ultra high-resolution and taken with almost no background light, these pictures have answered some of the most compelling questions of time and space, while also revealing new mysteries, like the strange “dark energy” that sees the universe expanding at an ever-accelerate rate. Now, the precision of the telescope is matched with the precision of TASCHEN reproduction standards, allowing the images to mesmerize in their iridescent colors and vast, fragile forms.”
These a just a few images from the book, called Expanding Universe. Photographs from the Hubble Space Telescope.
