NASA makes interactive Hubble book free on iBooks
Dec. 26, 2012 (8:05 am) By: Ryan Whitwam
It’s no secret that Apple’s iBooks store didn’t end up posing a serious threat to Amazon. Rather than become the one-stop-shop for all iOS readers, it’s become a prime source for interactive books and those rich with multimedia content. It’s the perfect platform for NASA to deliver stunning Hubble Space Telescope images and video in book form. One such volume is being made available for free as a little holiday treat.
The book is called Hubble Space Telescope: Discoveries, and it’s filled with high-resolution images, video, and animations of all manner of stellar wonders relating to the Hubble. This title is part of a series from NASA that will present the discoveries of Hubble and the upcoming Webb space telescope in an easy to consume way.
