"HUBBLE" IMAX FILM
AT ST. LOUIS SCIENCE CENTER

Yes, they packed a huge IMAX format camera
on last year's space shuttle mission
to upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope.
(Be still my heart!)

And you can see these huge IMAX images
of the Hubble mission at the Science Center
through the rest of the year.
(Show times at www.slsc.org)

Repairs have been made to this remarkable
telescope, which will have us seeing the far expanses
of our universe for many years to come.
You haven't seen stars until you see this film!

See the stuff where stars are born, including
galaxies and solar systems a billion light years away.

(And yes, I took these pics off the IMAX screen.)
