Seven Featurettes from ‘Hubble 3D’


It is very unlikely that you or I will ever become an astronaut. What is very likely is that we have thought or dreamed about it. Yes, dreamed about space travel. The experience of exiting our atmosphere and entering the vastness of space. As a science fiction lover, I grew up watching “Star Trek” and “Star Wars.” Space, along with time travel, were constant subjects of thought and daydreams during most of my youth.

Now NASA, in an effort to continue educating the world, has united forces with IMAX, and they are launching a whole new adventure called “Hubble 3D.” The result: we will be able to go on an actual journey to outer space like we have never seen before. This will not be a computer generated space; no, this is the real thing. And with the trip being filmed in 3D, we will be able to actually feel like we are there, hundreds of miles above earth (366 miles to be exact).

Then after enjoying the journey to space, we will get first-hand images, 3D IMAX images from the Hubble telescope. What beautiful stars, nebulas or constellation will we be treated to?

With the Hubble telescope, man has been able to reach further than ever. Beyond the limits of any previously seen distances. I love this line from the NASA web site: “NASA set out on a monumental journey with the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope in April 1990. Since then, it has captured the minds and imaginations of people around the world.” This is so true. I could look at the images captured by the grandiose Hubble eye forever.

Now scroll down and start embarking on the journey ahead of time with these seven featurettes below. They will definitely open your eyes to the enormous amounts of preparation it takes to go on a space mission. These seven featurettes will take you through the shuttle simulator training, the day of the launch, and all the incredible gear the astronauts use. Oh, and did I mention it’s narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio? Oh, so now you are even more interested than before aren’t you?

Well, you’ll only have to wait until May 6 to see “Hubble 3D.”
