Editorial Reviews

Review

Specialty Press is known for high quality books and this one certainly follows in that mold. The attention to detail and quality research along with the typical superlative images makes for a book that I can quite easily recommend to you. Highly recommended. - --Modeling Madness, reviewed by Scott Van Aken, October 2009<br /><br />As with every other Specialty Press title I've read, this book is a treasure trove of information. If you have any interest at all in the subject matter it is well worth picking up. Highly recommended. ---Starship Modeler, reviewed by John Lester, October 2009<br /><br />It is a great reference source for not only the final servicing mission, but for the whole Hubble program up to this point and I can highly recommend this book to anyone interested in space subjects. - --IPMS, reviewed by Ben Guenther, December 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book makes a wonderful new edition to any spaceflight enthusiast library. The authors Jenkins and Frank, like their previous treatments have provided a nice compact book on the most recent and last servicing mission to the space telescope. The pictures in this work are outstanding. The opening sections of the book detailing the history and developement of the HST is informative and great reading. As I stated in a prior review, I wish the authors could chronicle the remaining space shuttle flights. They do a very good job of capturing the subject matter both in easy on the eyes text and did I mention outstanding pictures. I guess one could argue that this material is available on the net. But I for one still like books, and this format which not only covers the very last mission but also the other servicing missions to the telescope, is a handy guide to truly one of the greatest achievements in engineering and manned spaceflight.

A thoroughly detailed book suitable for all ages, that my home-schooled six year old son will never out grow. a valuable addition to our home research library. A great supplement to the Imax movie"Hubble" that we were able to borrow from the library.
