Description:
The development and operation of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) have resulted in many rich legacies, most particularly in science and technology -- but in culture as well. This book, which includes contributions from historians of science, key scientists and administrators, and one of the principal astronauts who led many of the servicing missions, is meant to capture the history of this iconic instrument.
