Robert Zimmerman
is a well known and respected space historian and author. He also wrote a weekly UPI column which can be found by doing a Google for “Zimmerman bibliography” and click on “A Zimmerman Bibliography”. Mr. Zimmerman is also an award winning author. His new book is now out, “THE UNIVERSE IN A MIRROR: THE SAGA OF THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE AND THE VISIONARIES WHO BUILT IT” is published by Princeton University Press. The book tells the poignant tale of the men and women behind the telescope, and how many had to sacrifice careers and family to get it built.



It also describes in detail the importance of Hubble both scientifically and culturally. More than any other instrument sent into space, the Hubble Space Telescope reshaped the human perception of our place in the universe. Robert’s book “LEAVING EARTH: Space Stations, Rival Superpower, and the Quest for Interplanetary Travel” is a must read! His work is published regularly in such magazines as ASTRONOMY, THE SCIENCES, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, INVENTION & TECHNOLOGY, FORTUNE, AD ASTRA, AMERICAN HISTORY, STARDATE, and many other major magazines. In 2000 he was co-winner of the David N. Schramm Award, given by the High Energy Astrophysics Division of the American Astronomical Society for Science Journalism. Before writing his newest book, LEAVING EARTH, Mr. Zimmerman authored two books, GENESIS, THE STORY OF APOLLO 8, published by Four Walls Eight Windows in 1998, describes the family and political tale behind the first human journey to another world and THE CHRONOLOGICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF DISCOVERIES IN SPACE (published by Oryx Press, now Greenword Publishing Group 2000). This is a detailed reference book describing what was accomplished on every space mission beginning in October 1957 with Sputnik and continuing through December 1999. Mr. Zimmerman also won an Emmy Award for the best space history for the general public by the American Astronautical Society awarded on Nov. 16, 2004.
