Summary
  • 400 years of the telescope: "The film features interviews with leading astrophysicists and cosmologists from the world's renowned universities and observatories, who explain concepts ranging from Galileo's act of revealing the cosmos with a simple telescope, to the latest discoveries in space, including startling new ideas about life on other planets and dark energy - a mysterious vacuum energy that is accelerating the expansion of the universe."--Container
  • Hubble's amazing rescue: Takes viewers behind the scenes on a riveting journey with the astronauts and engineers charged with saving the famous Hubble Space Telescope. After nearly 20 years in space, and after capturing hundreds of thousands of spectacular images, the Hubble Space Telescope was dying. Stubborn scientists and the general public alike refused to abandon the telescope, and the mission was revived
  • Journey to Palomar: George Ellery Hale's epic quest to unravel the secrets of the cosmos, culminating with the construction in the 1930s and '40s of his million-pound 'Glass Giant' of Palomar--the Hale 200-inch Telescope
  • Seeing in the dark: A documentary capturing the joys and wonders of stargazing, featuring never-before-seen astronomical photography
  • Telescope: Hunting the edge of space: Takes viewers on a global adventure of discovery, dramatizing the inNovations in technology and the achievements in science that have marked the rich history of the telescope. Then Nova turns its attention to a new generation of ever-larger telescopes, poised to reveal answers to longstanding questions about our universe
