TitleLife with Hubble: An insider's view of the world's most famous telescope
Author(s)David S Leckrone
PublicationBristol, Institute of Physics Publishing, 2020.
Abstract NoteThe Hubble Space Telescope is one of the most important scientific and engineering endeavors of our time. It has given humankind the first truly clear view of the heavens and has revolutionized almost every area of modern astronomy. The author this text, David Leckrone, worked as a project scientist on Hubble for 33 years. From 1992–2009 he was the Senior Project Scientist for Hubble at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. In that role he had an insider's view of the trials and triumphs of the Hubble mission, including its extraordinary scientific discoveries and the personal journeys of the astronomers who made them, the adventure of five successful shuttle-based servicing missions, and the quiet heroism of the many scientists, engineers and managers who rose to the occasion when Hubble was in trouble. This book is loosely a personal memoir but can more accurately be called a "Hubble family memoir" for which Leckrone serves as narrator. Based on numerous interviews and personal observations, Life With Hubble tells the human stories and describes the professional achievements of scores of talented and dedicated individuals who made major contributions to the Hubble legacy. It spans the years from 1990, when Hubble was launched and when the affliction of spherical aberration was discovered in its optics, through the final servicing mission in 2009 and up to the present day. There are also numerous flashbacks from earlier years. This book is aimed at an informed, non-professional audience, including those who have followed the saga of Hubble throughout its lifetime.

TitleHubble deep field and the distant universe
Author(s)Robert Williams
PublicationBristol, Institute of Physics Publishing, 2018.
Abstract NoteHubble Deep Field and the Distant Universe describes a watershed event in the history of astronomy, in addition to recounting the development of space astronomy. Aimed at a wide-ranging audience including amateur astronomers, science historians, researchers, Hubble Space Telescope (HST) aficionados and students interested in science, this book recounts the progression of events that led to the deep field exploration of Robert Williams and the Hubble Deep Field (HDF) team. Giving a fascinating insight into the processes by which astronomical research projects are carried out and unique discoveries are made by HST, this book describes the momentous image that has enabled astronomers to piece together the evolution of the largest structures in the universe.

TitleNext generation space telescope: Visiting a time when galaxies were young
Author(s)H.S. Stockman (ed.)
PublicationWashington, Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, 1997.
Description163p.
Contents NoteIn the spring and summer of 1996, three independant teams studied the feasibility of a large aperture space telescope to follow the Hubble Space Telescope. The scientific goals for the telescope had been laid out in a report by the HST & Beyond Committee, a group appointed by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy to consider the needs of the astronomical community after the nominal end of the HST mission in 2005. This report presents the findings of these three teams and the technological roadmap which will guide us to the successful development of the NGST over the next decade.
