Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This documentary is one of a three part series that investigates the amazing discoveries of deep space exploration. In the early part of the century, astronomer Edwin Hubble postulated that the universe is rapidly expanding. Using the telescope that bears his name, astronomers continue their search back in time and space, examining the cataclysmic events that shaped the galaxies. In this episode, questions of the age and nature of the universe are pondered by the scientists. Live action sequences, still shots, and computer animation are used to present their findings. The amazing, high resolution photographs of the Hubble Space Telescope take viewers on a fantastic journey through the vastness of space.
