Hubble IMAX Film Takes Viewers on Ride Through Space and Time


Video: Hubble IMAX Film: The Making of the Goods Zoom, Interview Clip with Frank Summers, Astrophysicist and Scientific Visualization Specialist

Running Time: 37 seconds

Frank Summers, STScI astrophysicist and scientific visualization specialist, explains how the 3-D journey through these galaxies provides more than just a new perspective in space; it also takes the audience back in time. Because light takes time to travel across space, the galaxies farther away from Earth are seen further back in cosmic history.
