NOVA: Invisible Universe Revealed

25 years ago, NASA launched one of the most ambitious experiments in the history of astronomy: the Hubble Space Telescope. In honor of Hubble's landmark anniversary, NOVA tells the remarkable story of the telescope that forever changed our understanding of the cosmos and our place in it. But amazingly, when the telescope first sent images back to earth, it seemed that the entire project was a massive failure; a one-millimeter engineering blunder had turned the billion-dollar telescope into an object of ridicule. It fell to five heroic astronauts in a daring mission to return Hubble to the cutting edge of science. NOVA hears from the scientists and engineers on the front line who tell the amazing Hubble story as never before. This single telescope has helped astronomers pinpoint the age of the universe, revealed the birthplace of stars and planets, advanced our understanding of dark energy and cosmic expansion, and uncovered black holes lurking at the heart of galaxies. For more than a generation, Hubble's stunning images have brought the beauty of the heavens to millions, revealing a cosmos richer and more wondrous than we ever imagined. Join NOVA for the story of this magnificent machine and its astonishing discoveries.

Fascinating Story of Mans Desire to Understand the Universe
Review by Cotati C. on 01/02/22 review stating Fascinating Story of Mans Desire to Understand the Universe
This is a very absorbing documentary of mans (and womans) desire to better understand the universe, its workings, composition, and origin by inventing a super telescope to send into space to capture images that could provide such information. Covers the background and history of how the Hubble Telescope was developed, its failures, and triumphs. There are some spectacular images of galaxies and other heavenly bodies in space. What this film impressed upon me is Jehovah Gods unfathomable power, creatorship, and extraordinary creations.

Great story, spectacular images
Review by Sigrid on 07/17/20 review stating Great story, spectacular images
This is definitely the best NOVA program Ive seen. I got it for my 7-year-old son who loves science, and the whole family watched it three times within a week. We also got it as a birthday present for another science-loving kid in his class. Its got a gripping story of how the telescope was made, the big flop it was originally, and the clever way they fixed it in orbit. And of course the images from Hubble are spectacular. It also features several important woman scientists, so Id recommend it for people looking to encourage girls to pursue science.

Review by Bethany B. on 07/17/20 review stating Excellent Video
This video contains a wealth of important information on one video, which would be difficult if not impossible to compile by individual research. A valuable video to anyone interested in science and education.

Hubble the Icing on NASAs Cake
Review by John on 07/17/20 review stating Hubble the Icing on NASAs Cake
The Hubble telescope has advanced our understanding of the universe tremendously. This is an excellent review of how hard it was to get where we are and showing what Hubble has done for mankind. Many things were brought up that I did not realize were only possible with Hubble.

Amazing!
Review by Daisy on 07/17/20 review stating Amazing!
Hubble has been a gift to this Earth in a way no one could truly fathom when it was first sent up into space. It has shown Gods magnificent creation and revealed truths about our Universe that have extended our knowledge and awe. This is a wonderful DVD and I recommend it to anyone who cherishes this journey. Hubble will eventually return to this Earth, but its fantastic legacy will live on. In the meantime, it will continue to bless mankind with beautiful glimpses into infinity. Hubble will always have a special place in my heart.
