IMAX film on Hubble Space Telescope opens at Fernbank this weekend

Hubble, an IMAX film about the Hubble Space Telescope, will begin its run at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History this Friday.

The film includes astounding images of the outer reaches of the universe, and shows Space Shuttle astronauts on a mission to repair the telescope.

My son and I saw this film at Space Camp this spring, and it is truly remarkable. Seeing the Hubble’s images on the larger-than-life IMAX screen will captivate the imagination of anyone remotely interested in the vastness and beauty of space. And watching the astronauts at work is especially poignant in light of the conclusion of the Space Shuttle program.

The film will run at Fernbank through Jan. 1, 2012.
