Space Mission Photos: Images From Infinite Worlds

Fine-art photographer Michael Soluri was invited to step inside the world of NASA and apply his eye to a mission to repair the Hubble space telescope, and he published a book of those photographs -- Infinite Worlds: The People and Places of Space Exploration. Sounds pretty amazing, right? You can hear all about it firsthand when Soluri speaks to a group at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 21 in the Phipps IMAX Theater at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, 2001 South Colorado Boulevard, at a special event titled "Imaging the Universe."

If you're having trouble imagining what an artist's view of a space mission looks like, never fear: Soluri provided these photos from Infinite Worlds to give readers a taste of what's in store.
