Time after time, NASAˇ¦s Hubble Space Telescope has unveiled the mystery of the Universe for humans since its launch two decades ago. Based on the clear, detailed pictures captured by Hubble, scientists can witness the birth and death of stars, discover distant galaxies with names unknown, locate black holes at the centre of large galaxies, detect dark energy, understand the process of planet formation, accurately calculate the age of the Universe and so on.

Omnimax Show ˇ§Hubbleˇ¨ leads the audiences to participate in a difficult yet very meaningful space mission held in May 2009 for maintaining and upgrading the space telescope for the last time. The film discloses the training of astronauts in a large neutral buoyancy tank to simulate the working environment of the telescope in space. Successful completion of this mission, which included installation and updating of some instruments, was paramount if the telescope was to continue operating beyond 2014. 

To witness this important last servicing mission to Hubble, we will experience the shocking moment of the space shuttleˇ¦s liftoff and watch the astronauts working in space up close!

On 11 May 2009, seven astronauts of NASA were about to proceed to the launch pad. They would travel on the Space Shuttle Atlantis for the 11-day STS-125 mission to repair and upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope, aiming to extend its operational life span to at least 2014.
