Hubble: A Journey through Space and Time

"This film takes you on a journey ... a journey through time and space. I want to tell you the story of an instrument that has vastly improved our view of the skies, sharpening our perception of the Universe, and penetrating ever deeper toward the furthest edges of time and space."

"Hubble - 15 Years of Discovery" is a film that formed part of the European Space Agency's 15th anniversary celebration activities for the 1990 launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

The animations and images are fascinating. I learned a lot about both the Hubble and the history of the universe.

Enjoy this 80 minutes - and have a nice Sunday everyone.

For further information:
Here you can find the movie script (pdf - 65 pages).

More Hubble films you can get at the video archive by The European Homepage For The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

And here is a downloadable version of "Hubble - 15 Years of Discovery" by ESA. Each chapter can be downloaded at both low and high quality in English or German.
