Free eBook: NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope Discoveries
For your new iPad, of course. Edwin Hubble’s eponymous Space Telescope has discovered and gathered a incredible wealth of knowledge and awe inspiring beauty since its launch in 1990. Its caretakers at NASA have shared a generous slice of that bounty in a free ebook, Hubble Space Telescope Discoveries, which is available for the asking on the iBooks Store.
For more than two decades, Hubble has had a front-row seat for cosmic events: comets plunging into Jupiter, the explosive death of stars, the birth of new solar systems and more. In the process, it has changed the face of astronomy. Learn about Hubble’s revelations and take a tour of the history and technology of the telescope.
Created in Apple’s iBook Author, Hubble Space Telescope Discoveries puts the stars in your hands while enlightening you about the spaceship that made it all possible.
All good stuff and all the better because it’s available in a free ebook.
