Edwin Hubble

By: Alix Wood

A lot of people have heard of the Hubble Space Telescope, but many don't know much about the person it's named for. Readers of this illuminating volume will learn all about the man who, in the 1920s, used the largest telescope of the time to discover and learn about other galaxies. This informative biography teaches readers about both history and science. A science project based on Hubble's work invites readers to try their hand at becoming scientists themselves.

Coverage is generally centered on each person’s scientific contributions. Replete with visuals, the titles resemble scrapbooks, repeatedly using a “Science Notes” section to convey deeper meanings of relevant scientific discoveries. Captions and text boxes frame related information in context while also illuminating unexpected topics such as sexism or the symbiosis of the arts and sciences. The inclusion of a simple science experiment in the back matter encourages further exploration, while a quiz on the books’ subjects can be used to rate one’s comprehension. A creditable representation of individuals that is more scientifically than biographically focused.
