'Hubble: Galaxies Across Space and Time' (IMAX Short Film)
Released on July 3, 2007
This short film created for the IMAX screen features a computer-generated flight through more than 10,000 real galaxies originally imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope as part of the Great Observatory Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) project. Hubble scientists and imaging specialists worked for months to extract individual galaxy images, placing them in a 3D model according to their approximate true distances as determined by ground-based photometric redshift data.
Wide-Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) was installed in Dec 1993 and used to obtain high resolution images of astronomical objects. This camera was removed in the last servicing mission so it is no longer in service.
