Hubble Space Telescope – The Final Repair Mission

The Hubble Space Telescope was repaired and enhanced during the STS-125 mission of Space Shuttle Atlantis. Launched on May 11, 2009, the 11 day mission included some five spacewalks to make repairs and upgrades to the telescope, leaving it more capable and hopefully prepared to last another five years.

This educational video will explain astronomy for kids in a fun and engaging style with exciting computer animation and breath-taking images from the Hubble Telescope.

Perfect as the basis for discussion of science in class or a science project beginning, the ESA astronaut and narrator discuss and describe the goals of the final Hubble servicing mission including key mission objectives and the scientific theories behind Wide Field Camera III, Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS), the use of chemistry and optics in astronomy, searching for Quasars, galaxy formation and the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS).
