This is isn’t a science fiction movie although there is probably a lot of science in it. It is though probably one of the coolest movies you will see about man, space, and the Hubble telescope.
In the last mission to upgrade and save the Hubble telescope NASA also sent along an IMAX 3D camera and through it movie-goers will see mind-blowing images in all their 3D glory. Here is the blurb that goes along with the movie
Through the power of IMAX® 3D, Hubble 3D will enable movie-goers to journey through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mysteries of our celestial surroundings, and accompany space-walking astronauts as they attempt the most difficult and important tasks in NASA’s history. The film will offer an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy and highlight its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves.
Hubble 3D is an IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures production, in cooperation with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The film reunites the Space Station 3D filmmaking team, led by Producer/Director Toni Myers.
Hubble 3D will blast off exclusively to IMAX and IMAX 3D theatres on March 19th, 2010.
