On November 20th, 2012, American astronomer Edwin Powell Hubble would have celebrated 123 years on Planet Earth. Hubble's discovery and development of the concept of an expanding universe has been described as the "most spectacular astronomical discovery" of the 20th century. As a tribute, the Hubble Space Telescope, deployed April 25, 1990, from US space shuttle Discovery, was named for him.

The Twelve is Justin Cronin’s follow-up to 2010’s “one of the best books of the year” The Passage.

Excellent pacing, vivid prose, and well-drawn characters make for a great story. Though other reviewers were somewhat disappointed by this entry, I was not, and am definitely looking forward to the conclusion.
