The filmmakers who brought you aboard the Space Station 3D invite you to follow the Hubble Space Telescope on its mission to explore the farthest reaches of the cosmos. Follow astronauts up into space as they strive to get the powerful telescope prepared for a fantastic journey of discovery. Witness the birth of a star, and experience the awesome power of a supernova in stunning IMAX 3-D.~Jason Buchanan

There have been a few IMAX documentaries about mankind's exploration of space. Some have relied on the novelty alone ("Hey, we got an IMAX camera all the way up here....and it weighs nothing!") and some have relied on the sheer brilliance of the mission (one memorable line in "Roving Mars" described the difficulty of landing an unmanned machine there as equivalent to a basketball player throwing a ball from Los Angeles, across the US and it going through a hoop in Madison Square Garden [NYC] without touching the rim).
"IMAX: Hubble" is something else entirely, it conveys the jaw-dropping awe of being able to peer so far(out) into space that we are actually time-traveling, looking back to the beginnings of our Universe. To actually see a "space-womb" where stars are born.
This movie sparks the imagination and wakes up parts of the viewers brain like few things can, and it does it very well. A must see, must own, and must share with anyone you call family or friend. By understanding the larger universe more, we get to know ourselves and each other better, too. Don't ask how that works, it just does.
This was a good 3-d movie experience. The resolution of the scenes in space, including the shuttle launch, and various space walks was impeccable and eye capturing. The Telescope and shuttle bay appeared to be jutting out of the screen.
I was hoping for more space imagery (galaxies, stars, etc.) in 3-d. However, they focused more on the mission to upgrade and repair the hubble rather than the imagery it captured over the years. There was 10 or 15 minutes of space imagery, and could have definitely used more. Overall, a 45 minute video is kind of lacking for a $30 price tag.
Nonetheless, it was mind blowing and captivating ... good for all audiences.
This is an amazing video for 3D fans to geek out on. The producers used star positioning data gathered from Hubble and other ground instruments to make traveling to the stars as realistic as possible. I loved it!
I saw this documentary at the IMAX and I was just blown away. This actually brought tears to my eyes, seeing our incredible, awe-inspiring galaxy and beyond in immersion 3D.
Anyone who gives this film a negative is just out of their minds. Anyone who has heard of this knows it's not a fictional film. Don't know the show because you didn't look up what the video actually was.
This is a beautiful exploration of the cosmos. For the average person, this is as close to being a part of space you will ever get.
It was also informative with decent narration by Leo DeCaprio, and I'm not really a fan of his.
This should be required viewing by all of Congress so they can realize their absolute folly in shuttering manned space exploration.
This disc was a disappointment. The 3D elements were great, but there was very little space. Most of the disc was just repairs being made to the Hubble Telescope, not the images it took, which is what I wanted to see. If you're interested in seeing stuff be repaired in space, this is the disc for you. If you want to see what else there is in the universe, look elsewhere.
