Book Description 
Mark Holborn, guest editor  
For what is more beautiful than heaven?-Copernicus  
Once we looked longingly at the heavens from Earth; now we can observe Earth from the heavens. The moment we were able to look back at Earth from space marked a profound step in history. The development of the optical telescope corresponded with the growth of photography in the nineteenth century. Inextricably linked, cartography, astronomy, and photography have mapped our changing perceptions of ourselves. Steps in Space features early photographs of the sun and moon, NASA images of Mars, and the astonishing images of the generation and decay of stars that the Hubble Space Telescope has provided us in recent years. Against this background, the issue presents interpretive photographs by Hiro, Kikuji Kawada, Sophie Ristelheuber, and others, as well as works by Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi, and Cai Guo Qiang.
