Why did NASA put a telescope in the space? Learn about the amazing hubble telescope its importance for the future and beautiful picture send by it to scientist. A complete show on hubble with senior astronomer amitabh pandey and dr. Praveen tiwari. Astronauts have successfully completed Servicing Mission 4, the final shuttle mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. Over the course of five spacewalks, astronauts successfully installed two new instruments, repaired two others, and replaced a number of components essential to the telescope’s smooth functioning, such as batteries and insulation. Now the process of testing and adjusting the telescope is under way. Find out what’s going on behind the scenes, and learn what to expect from the first new Hubble images, arriving in September.

Hubble 3d – Trailer


Hubble 3d – Trailer – The IMAX 3D camera, which flew onboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis, captured stunning 3D images of the intricate spacewalks required to service the telescope during the most recent mission last May. Shot by the STS-125 astronauts, this intimate look at the complexities of repairing the telescope will put IMAX audiences right there along-side the spacewalking astronauts. “Hubble 3D” will combine this awe-inspiring IMAX footage with breathtaking up-close imagery of distant galaxies, the birth of stars and planets, and more – revealing the cosmos as never before.

Atlantis, STS 125 Successful Hubble Mission Lands.


O ônibus espacial Atlantis retornou com segurança para a terra. SUCCESSFUL HUBBLE MISSION Space shuttle Atlantis and its crew landed at 11:39 am EDT Sunday at Edwards Air Force Base in California, completing the final servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. Atlantis’ astronauts conducted five successful spacewalks during their STS-125 flight to enhance and extend the life of the orbiting observatory. Atlantis’ 13-day mission of approximately 5.3 million miles rejuvenated Hubble with state-of-the-art science instruments designed to improve the telescope’s discovery capabilities by as much as 70 times, while extending its lifetime through at least 2014.

STS-125, tribute to Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Mission 4


en.wikipedia.org Mission name STS-125 Space shuttle Atlantis Launch pad LC-39A Launch date May 11, 2009, 2:01:56 pm EDT (18:01:56 UTC) Landing May 24, 2009, 11:39:05 am EDT (15:39:05 UTC) Runway 22 – Edwards Air Force Base Mission duration 12 days, 21 hours, 37 minutes, 9 seconds Number of orbits 197 Apogee 578 km Perigee 486 km Orbital period 97 min Orbital altitude 320 nautical miles (570 km) Orbital inclination 28.5° at 304 nautical miles Distance traveled 5.3 million miles www.nasa.gov Veteran astronaut Scott D. Altman commanded the final space shuttle mission to Hubble. Retired Navy Capt. Gregory C. Johnson served as pilot. Mission specialists included veteran spacewalkers John M. Grunsfeld and Michael J. Massimino and first-time space fliers Andrew J. Feustel, Michael T. Good and K. Megan McArthur. Atlantis astronauts repaired and upgraded the Hubble Space Telescope, conducting five spacewalks during their mission to extend the life of the orbiting observatory. They successfully installed two new instruments and repaired two others, bringing them back to life, replaced gyroscopes and batteries, and added new thermal insulation panels to protect the orbiting observatory. The result is six working, complementary science instruments with capabilities beyond what was available and an extended operational lifespan until at least 2014. With the newly installed Wide Field Camera, Hubble will be able to observe in ultraviolet and infrared spectrums as well as visible light

IMAX Hubble 3D Film of NASA Shuttle Launch


James Neihouse IMAX Director of Photography talks about the IMAX Shuttle launch camera positions and on preparing the Shuttle crew for filming in space. By combining incredible IMAX footage with images taken by the Hubble telescope and advanced computer visualization, Hubble’s detailed data becomes a series of scientifically realistic flights that unfold on screen like a guided tour of the universe, though time and space. In May 2009, the crew of the Space Shuttle Atlantis launched a mission to make vital repairs and upgrades to the Hubble Telescope, the world’s first space-based observatory, 563 kilometers above the Earth. On board was an IMAX camera, operated by the Shuttle astronauts. It captured stunning sequences of the intricate spacewalks required to make those repairs, as well as close-up images of the effort to grasp the orbiting telescope with the shuttle’s mechanical arm at 28200 kph. HUBBLE is an IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures production, in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, the film reunites the Space Station filmmaking team, led by Director Toni Myers, James Neihouse, Director of Photography and Executive Producer Graeme Ferguson who is also the co-founder of IMAX and a pioneer producer of many IMAX space films. The IMAX documentary film HUBBLE has its Canadian premiere is at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto on March 19, 2010.
