6 April 2020 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This is a National Geographic documentary narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson. It details the conception, the manufacturing, the problem, the fix, and the legacy of this iconic telescope. It is what a standard documentary is supposed to be. It's informative but it's not digging up anything new. Neil has a great voice and he delivers the story with passion and comprehension. It's a solid recap of a great step forward.
