|4||CleanVideoHST SM4: STIS Repair, The Quest for Renewed Exploration||STIS was our first black hole hunter. It confirmed for the first time the existence of a super massive black hole in the center of a galaxy. And it went on to make the first detection and chemical analysis of the atmosphere of a planet around another star. We want to want to keep on doing that kind of work.||9/10/2008||Free||View in iTunes|
|5||CleanVideoHST SM4: Hubble’s Cosmic Origins Spectrograph||Spectroscopes or spectrographs are absolutely essential in that toolbox of astronomical tools that are so important for research. They produce ugly pictures. But they are the nuts and bolts of physical science. They put the physics in astrophysics.||9/2/2008||Free||View in iTunes|
|6||CleanVideoHST SM4: Hubble’s Science Legacy||Hubble laid the groundwork that you can do things in space with a telescope that wasn’t planned to do that observation. We have pushed the instruments to a level that wasn’t expected, even by the people who build the instrument.||8/29/2008||Free||View in iTunes|
|7||CleanVideoHST SM4: Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3||The Wide Field Camera is going to be very useful for those who are studying the Kuiper Belt cause it will allow them to see more objects over a wider field.||8/29/2008||Free||View in iTunes|
|8||CleanVideoHST SM4: Vying For Hubble Time||Michael Strauss, Chair of one of the panels reviewing and judging the Hubble Space Telescope proposals: "Our job is to choose the best science projects and the new scientific opportunities with the COS and the WFC3, the two new instruments that are being put on to Hubble."||8/29/2008||Free||View in iTunes|
|9||CleanVideoHST SM4: Last Mission to Hubble||This is going to be a very exciting, complicated and challenging mission. We have seven brave astronauts who’ve made a conscious decision to risk their lives in order to continue the advancement of science that Hubble has begun. They’re going to buy another five, perhaps ten more years of lifetime for this great telescope.||8/29/2008||Free||View in iTunes|
|10||CleanVideoHST SM4: Hubble Servicing Mission Movie Trailer||The last mission to Hubble, Servicing Mission 4 movie-trailer-like video.||7/17/2008||Free||View in iTunes|
A series worthy of the world's most amazing observatory
These short videos are as good as anything you'll see on the discovery or science channel. What an incredible mission this is going to be.
