Who knows? I guess it will depend on how many pages there will be and that may be a direct result of how the mission goes.

And the Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) from May 25 is now the "official" cover of the book! That was fast!

I just received this book from Amazon a few days ago, and I can't recommend it highly enough... in my opinion, the best in this series.

Hundreds of sharp color photographs and diagrams, all with detailed captions, cover not just the mission itself but crew training, vehicle assembly and processing operations, and even the STS-400 LON profile. It also includes a summary history of the HST, photos from the telescope itself, and two-page spreads covering the deployment and previous servicing missions.

All in all, a terrific little package. Books like this make me even more disappointed that Specialty Press is ceasing operations.

All times are CT (US)
