Praise

“Hubble is the best known for its stunning photos, but Light from the Void proves that enhancing Hubble imagery with X-ray data from Chandra attains a whole new dimension of beauty. The book has short introductory essays followed by edge-to-edge prints of gorgeous astronomical objects, each one paired with a detailed caption explaining the significance. […] The beautiful images are the main point of this coffee-table book, but there is plenty to learn from the text. – Emily Lakdawalla, The Planetary Society

“…in Light From The Void, a team of five scientists and science communicators specialized in X-ray space telescopes have come together to create a compendium like you’ve never seen: an informative picture-heavy book of the X-ray Universe. […] To experience a side of the Universe that’s beautiful, educational, but rarely receives the attention that visible light does, don’t miss your chance to pick a copy of this one up.”  Ethan Siegel, Forbes

“Chandra is overshadowed by its more famous fellow space telescope, Hubble, particularly among the general public (most people have heard of Hubble, but far fewer know about Chandra) in part because x-ray imagery often isn’t as picturesque as the visible and near-infrared imagery that Hubble churns out. That’s rectified in Light from the Void, a new book by several astronomers involved with Chandra. This large-format book includes dozens of color images created with Chandra, often combined with visible and other images. The result is a set of images that are both beautiful and insightful.” – The Space Review
