Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

This "Stargazing" collection includes: "400 Years of the Telescope" - Following the history of the telescope from the days of Copernicus to recent findings from the Hubble Telescope, "400 Years of the Telescope" opens in 17th century Florence, Italy, with Galileo training his spyglass on the heavens and discovering that Jupiter has four moons, Venus has phases like the Moon, and most shocking of all: the Earth is not the center of the universe. "Hubble's Amazing Rescue" - In the spring of 2009, NASA sent a shuttle crew on a risky mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope for the last time. The astronaut servicing team carried out the first ever in-space repairs of Hubble's defective instruments, tasks that required ingenious engineering fixes and the most intensive NASA spacewalk ever. NOVA presents the inside story of the mission and the extraordinary challenges faced by the rescue crew. "The Journey to Palomar" - Traces the story of the Chicago-born astronomer George Ellery Hale, considered the father of astrophysics, as he struggled personally and professionally to build the greatest telescopes of the 20th century at the Yerkes and Mount Wilson Observatories, and finally, the 20-year effort to build the million-pound telescope on Palomar mountain beginning in the 1930s. Hale's observatories revolutionized our understanding of the universe. "Seeing in the Dark" - Celebrates the wonders of stargazing - from kids learning the constellations to amateur astronomers doing professional-grade research in discovering planets and exploding stars. Based on Timothy Ferris' award-winning book, the film features never-before-seen astronomical photography and spectacular special effects. "Telescope: Hunting the Edge of Space" - Celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope and takes viewers on a global adventure of discovery, exploring the rich history of the telescope. Then NOVA explores a new generation of ever-larger telescopes, poised to reveal answers to longstanding questions about our universe, and, in turn, to raise new questions.
