Horizon

The Final Frontier? A Horizon Guide to the Universe

Review by:
James Gill

From having to repair the Hubble space telescope 350 miles above Earth to the mistaken belief that scientists had found Martian life in an Arctic meteorite, our journey of discovery has sometimes faltered. But it has also been beautiful: Hubble’s repair resulted in the most stunning images of the universe yet.

The search for life has turned science fiction into science fact. Nearly 50 years of archive footage shows us how far science has come – and how far it still has to go.
