IMAX 3D Camera In Space - Hubble 3D Trailer

IMAX, Warner Brothers and NASA have teamed up to take the public "on a journey through time and space". In 2009 seven astronaughts were sent on a mission to repair and service the Hubble Space Telescope, armed with an IMAX 3D camera - the result is Hubble 3D. This trailer is breathtaking:

As the trailer states, the film aims to "show us the size of the universe and the beauty that it holds", taking the audience through the Atlantis shuttle launch, the setbacks of the mission and apparent 'dramatic rescues'. IMAX 3D footage will be combined with 3D Hubble Space Telescope imagery of the farthest reaches of space.

Judging by the trailer and further research, Hubble 3D looks set to give a vivid experience of the cosmos and will be the closest any normal person can get to space travel. What's next - taking actors to outer-space to film inter-glactic sci-fi films on-location? Why not ...

The film is set to be released worldwide in IMAX theatres Spring 2010.
