NASA will shoot 3D film about "Hubble's" repair. / May 6, 2009 /

Following the results of repair of an orbital telescope «Hubble» will be shot a film in a format 3D IMAX, informed in the message on site NASA. In manufacture of picture Hubble 3D which release is planned for spring of 2010, will be engaged IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures.

Repair work will be spent by crew of a shuttle «Atlantis». The shuttle should start into an orbit on May, 11th, 2009. Astronauts specially studied in camera art on the Earth.
