Trivia

During an interview on the Bob Rivers Show (Seattle, May 2010), director Toni Myers remarked, "One of the things, in our training, we have this shopping list of scenes that we developed together with Ray J [nickname of shuttle pilot Gregory C. Johnson] for the eight minutes, and that's quite prescribed. But we always say: Now, if an alien comes up and looks into the camera, don't not shoot it because it isn't on the list!" See more »

First of: I saw this movie in Imax but not in 3D.

If you are interested in understanding how Hubble operates, it's engineering, day-to-day duties of the astronauts or any kind of coherent study of how stars are born and die then this movie will disappoint you.

The movie constantly errs on more emotional side, especially in presenting the astronauts. Some of the narration is also a bit too disingenuous - the crews going up the orbit are presented as some sort of breakthrough heroes doing something that had never been done before them - going into space.

What the movie does offer is spectacular imagery of shuttle launches, Hubble itself, and it's "repair" and some light perusal into the astronauts lives in the orbit. You will also see some spectacular imagery Hubble was able to capture and some explanation of it.
