Book Description

Would you like to see a colossal storm on the planet Saturn? Or would you rather see the black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy? Is it possible to see a planet in another galaxy 13 billion light years away? Orbiting high above Earth, the Hubble Telescope captures all these amazing wonders of space. Incredible photographs are relayed back to Earth, allowing scientists and astronomers to study parts of space that were once completely unknown. Author Michael D. Cole explores the remarkable journey of launching this telescope into space and how it can unlock the greatest mysteries of the universe.

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-6-The differences between the previous series, "Countdown to Space" and "Space Flight Adventures and Disasters," and these updated versions would appear to be the inclusion of more recent events in the field, updated website listings, and superior photography. All of the books reflect careful research and meticulous attention to detail. Eye on the Universe discusses the initial difficulties with the Hubble telescope and the missions that repaired it, allowing scientists to see planets in galaxies 13 billion light years away. Coolest Job focuses on the construction of the ISS, what life is like onboard, and the importance of the research projects conducted. Danger in Space chronicles the drama of the Apollo 13 mission, whose goal of a Moon landing changed to one of survival. Space Shuttle Disaster deals with the tragedy up front, and then backtracks to the causes. Spacewalk explains how this event paved the way for missions to the Moon, and Walking on the Moon relives that momentous event. Throughout, the courage, dedication, and sacrifice of the astronauts are emphasized. The texts are not bogged down with excessive scientific terminology.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

The books in the American Space Missions: Astronauts, Exploration, and Discovery series give kids here on Earth an inside look at the cosmos. The design of these titles is straightforward and clean, with four to six chapters broken up by headings, plus amazing photos taken on location in space, including a wow shot of the farside of the Moon. In Eye on the Universe, readers will learn how the Hubble Space Telescope works, its purpose, and about those touch-and-go servicing missions. Detailed chapter notes and further reading make this an excellent choice for upper-elementary and middle-school students wanting to learn about—and imagine themselves in—the final frontier. Grades 5-8. --Ann Kelley
