Product information "Galaxien"
Galaxies are luminous islands in space, enmeshed in the net of Dark Matter. As far-away milky ways they offer majestic images: sweeping spiral arms with glowing red gas nebulae, radiantly bright centres with black holes or twisted traces of stellar streams controlled by the gravity that dominates everything. This unique coffee table book shows the world of galaxies in the best images ever published. In addition to the famous Hubble space telescope, the new great scouts of large earthly observatories contribute images in a hitherto unknown richness of detail. The unique look deep into the infinity of space has us wonder about the potentials of science and the visual opulence of the universe.
