    Here's the trailer for the Hubble 3D IMAX film that was filmed throughout STS-125 last year. Looks absolutely amazing. Sadly we don't have an imax cinema in the ROI anymore so it might require a spin to London to see it.

    I really want to see this. Is there an IMAX in Belfast that would show it?

    And here is a link to a video first posted by lord Lucan on the STS-129 thread about the final mission to service Hubble.It is All about the making of the Imax film.It is funny,poignant,scientific.Six of the crew are in it including Mike Massimino who just the other day was acting as capcom to the ISS/SS for a tweating session live.Megan who could not be there for this video and mike flirted in a very funny way,she was in charge of his robot arm during his Spacewalks and she acted as Capcom a lot of the time during 126.
    anyway it combines so many interests it really is worth a watch!http://www.space-multimedia.nl.eu.org/archive/ns/replay7.php

    From what i can gather the IMAX in Belfast closed down too so London is probably our best bet.

    Hmm, seems like the release is in March... I'll be in London in April, hope it's still showing!

    Looks like the Science Museum in London are going to be showing it from March 19th on their 3D Imax screen.
