Beyond Earth

The Hubble Space Telescope it is by far the most famous telescope in

history. And for good reason. Hubble has revolutionised so many fields in astronomy.


By modern standards, Hubble's mirror is actually quite small. It only measures about 2.4 metres across. But its location is literally out of this world. High above the blurring effects of the atmosphere, it has an

exceptionally sharp view of the Universe.


And what's more, Hubble can see ultraviolet and near-infrared light. This light just cannot be seen by ground-based telescopes because it is blocked by the atmosphere.


Hubble has become the powerhouse of observational astronomy. And it has transformed our understanding of the cosmos.


The Eyes on the Skies is a movie produced as standard DVD and Blu-ray format, freely available for TV broadcasters and for public events carried out by educators, science centres, planetariums, amateur astronomers etc. (send your email, postal address plus a justification to us ). It explores the many facets of the telescope — the historical development, the scientific importance, the technological breakthroughs, and also the people behind this ground-breaking invention, their triumphs and failures. It is presented by Dr. J, aka Dr. Joe Liske, a professional astronomer from the European Southern Observatory and host of the Hubblecast video podcast.
