IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1433813/IMDB Rating: 7.9/10An IMAX 3D camera chronicles the effort of 7 astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.Hubble images come to vast, three-dimensional life in a new IMAX movie, "Hubble 3D," that takes audiences through the telescope's 20-year existence and puts them in orbit with astronauts during the latest servicing mission.The film's goal is to make viewers feel as though they are voyaging through the cosmos, seeing through Hubble抯 eyes, and peering over the shoulders of astronauts as they work on the telescope ?providing an intimacy and immediacy beyond the reach of static images.The astronomy visualization team at STScI shows how the Hubble 3D images were created.Groundbreaking astronomy visualizations, which allow viewers to soar through objects like the Orion and Eagle nebulae, past stars and embryonic solar systems, were the result of efforts by a group of specialists at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI).The team, led by Dr. Frank Summers, drew on the artistic talents of Greg Bacon, Zolt Levay and Lisa Frattare, and the science expertise of Dr. Massimo Roberto and Dr. Jay Anderson. Together they created the Orion Nebula model, developed a way to split the Carina Nebula into layers for 3-D viewing, and created synthetic star fields from Hubble photos, among other feats.

The movie is only 45 minutes long but contains more science than most American school children receive in a year. (And if they’re in Mississippi or California or Hawaii, more than they will probably get from K-12).

Avatar and Alice in Wonderland have given the world a new appetite for big screen effects. Done right, 3D adds immersion unapproached by flat projection. Hubble 3D combines those effects with reality in a way that the imaginary worlds of Pandora and Wonderland cannot. Yet so many Americans will ho-hum this because it’s about science.

Go See It Anyway.
