I've been to two launches, Apollo 11 and Apollo 12, and Hubble 3D is the first film I've seen -- and felt -- that does more than hint at the skeleton-rattling power of those stupendous rockets.

The daring mission by astronauts to repair and upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope in May 2009 is the perfect subject for a brilliant, thrilling 3-D Imax movie. Such a movie, alas, has yet to be made.

Hubble provides a vivid, breathtaking look at our solar system like never before. And it leaves us pondering not just science, but faith.

Too brief an exposure to the accomplishments of Hubble-enabled astronomy--but everyone should see it, nonetheless.

Hubble 3D doesn't weigh in heavily on theories of Big Bangs, evolution, or creation. Instead, it lets the visual data speak for itself.

Audience Reviews for Hubble 3D

I will never forget exploring the Orion nebula's star nursery in 3D, or traveling to the end of the Hubble's universe. Never before has 3D felt essential, but it is here. For a fleeting moment the Universe is no longer flattened by the spatial limits of pictures. DiCaprio does a wonderful job explaining the depth and majesty of our journey. I want more. A lot more.

This is an interesting documentary narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio. He tells the story of the launch, repair and mission of the Hubble telescope which looks into the cosmos. You cannot imagine all the stars in the galaxies. It's unbelievable what it has captured.

Great job doing this documentary, it was really good and I enjoyed every second of it. I felt like a little kid watching this in amazement. I actually saw this on IMAX DVD quality and it really look and felt great, no need for 3D.

The filmmakers who brought you aboard the Space Station 3D invite you to follow the Hubble Space Telescope on its mission to explore the farthest reaches of the cosmos. Follow astronauts up into space as they strive to get the powerful telescope prepared for a fantastic journey of discovery. Witness the birth of a star, and experience the awesome power of a supernova in stunning IMAX 3-D.

An excuse to release another 3D movie of astronauts in space, which as always is awesome - it's an entertaining way to watch the Hubble repair EVAs. But the movie is too short; there's not enough of the Hubble images and their science. The journey through the stars and into the Orion Nebula showed real promise for 3D as an astronomy outreach tool, but the rest wasn't so carefully prepared, making galaxies & nebulae look like layered paper cut-outs.

    1. Narrator: The hubble space telescope allows us to go to places so far away it's inconceivable that humans will ever go there.
