The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has operated continuously since 1990. During that time, four space shuttle-based service missions were launched, three of which added major observational capabilities. A fifth â€" SM-4 â€" was intended to replace key telescope systems and install two new instruments. The loss of the space shuttle Columbia, however, resulted in a decision by NASA not to pursue the SM-4 mission leading to a likely end of Hubble’s useful life in 2007-2008. This situation resulted in an unprecedented outcry from scientists and the public. As a result, NASA began to explore and develop a robotic servicing mission; and Congress directed NASA to request a study from the National Research Council (NRC) of the robotic and shuttle servicing options for extending the life of Hubble. This report presents an assessment of those two options. It provides an examination of the contributions made by Hubble and those likely as the result of a servicing mission, and a comparative analysis of the potential risk of the two options for servicing Hubble. The study concludes that the Shuttle option would be the most effective one for prolonging Hubble’s productive life.

In 1923 Edwin Hubble confirmed the existence of other galaxies. By the end of the decade, he proved that the universe is expanding, thus laying the very cornerstone of the big bang theory. A revealing portrait of a scientific genius at work, this book also offers an incisive narrative of the history of astronomy, and an evocation of what we see when gazing at the stars. "Highly entertaining. . . . Hubble may have been the most important astronomer since Galileo. Perhaps since Copernicus."—Dick Teresi, New York Times Book Review "Hubble's own story has not been adequately told until now. . . . A riveting portrait of a great scientist and a haunted man, and the best look we are likely to have of the real Hubble."—Dennis Overby, Los Angeles Times Book Review "Displays remarkable strength in its steadfast balance and scrupulous honesty. The greatness of the discoveries is set off against the contrasting pettiness of the man."—Hans Christian von Baeyer, Boston Sunday Globe "Fascinating. . . . This is one of the most impressive scientific biographies of recent years."—Kirkus Review, starred review — "Notable Books for the Year 1995" selection, New York Times Book Review —"Best Books of 1995" selection, Library Journal —Selected as one of the five best science books in 1995 by Carl Sagen, Washington Post

We're surrounded. Aktlan is all around us in the stars, an empire of a thousand worlds. Its people are human, descendants of Earthly civilizations long forgotten. To Aktlan, Earth is both the Motherworld and one big interlocking disease, forever quarantined. They've been free of disease for millennia and don't want careless Earthlings bringing them new plagues.Aktlan panics when Earth puts the Hubble Space Telescope in orbit. They worry their works will be seen in nearby star systems. They send four condemned criminals to disable Hubble. When in orbit, one of these four overpowers the other three, steals a small anti-gravity device and escapes to Earth. She'd rather die free and diseased.Morion Qur-Malik, the out-of-favor officer who put the team together, is sent to Earth to recapture her. She's too alien to blend in, even in California; her presence alone will reveal Aktlan to Earthly powers. Mory feels betrayed, both by the woman who escaped and the superiors who sent him after her. Within twenty-four hours of arrival, Mory decides he wants to stay, too. Thirty years of being dumped on is all he can take. Mory may be done with Aktlan, but Aktlan¿s not done with him.

This book is the first complete account of the scientific life and work of Edwin Hubble, whose discoveries firmly established the United States as the leading nation in observational astronomy. One of the outstanding astronomers of the twentieth century, Hubble discovered the expansion of the Universe. He opened the world of galaxies for science when he showed that spiral nebulae beyond the Milky Way are galaxies extending to the limits of the Universe, and participating in a general expansion of the cosmos. The exploding Universe of Hubble, now termed the Big Bang, determined the origin of the elements, of galaxies and of the stars. The second part of the book describes the fundamental discoveries on the nature of the Universe made subsequently, and thus sets his achievements in context. Written by two prominent astronomers who have built on Hubble's work, this book is a classic of science, setting out the thrilling story of the exploding Universe.

At last, a book presenting the fantastic scientific results of the first five years of Hubble Space Telescope observations While a number of books for the general public emphasize the technological accomplishments of this multi-billion dollar project or deal with the well-publicized flaw in the telescope's optics, Hubble: A New Window to the Universe concentrates on its astronomical achievements. The authors use new and ground-breaking Hubble results to illustrate a wide range of astronomical topics, from the great questions about the universe as a whole to quasars and black holes, and from the life and death of stars to our planetary neighbors in the solar system.

NASA's first book on the Hubble Space Telescope marks the 20th anniversary of one of history's most important scientific tools. Here is Hubble's 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 NASA's experts, the 20 most significant are accompanied by commentaries by notable scientists. Veteran astronauts from NASA's 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 world's imagination and spiritual growth, as documented in this inspiring book.
