The documentary "Hubble: Universe in Motion" probes the revelations brought forth from this breathtaking invention, and celebrates its role in forever altering our understanding of the universe.
summarizes several of the most profound discoveries made possible by the Hubble. For example, the telescope has successfully traced the violent process of star formation, and offered clues relating to the course of each star's entire life span. Armed with this knowledge, scientists can reasonably predict the future of our own Sun.
