What teachers said about the film -
“Visually the movie was amazing. 3D only enhanced the experience. The content of the movie information wise was varied and awe inspiring. I have already pencilled in time for next year to bring our stage 3 classes here.” - P. Dylan, Manly Vale PS
“A fantastic chance to feel like you are in space with the shuttle team as they work on Hubble. It was great to see outer reaches of our universe as well as spectacular views of our own planet. It gives you an excellent appreciation of how important the Hubble telescope is and what has been involved in repairing it. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you.” - G. Trigg, Thornleigh West PS
“Personally, I found the film engrossing, the quality of the 3D amazing and the questions that it raised about our place in the universe surprisingly emotional. From an educational perspective, the drama of the liftoff, the detail of the preparation, the amazing photography of astronauts carrying out their tasks and finally the journey through space will enthral just about every student. I look forward to seeing their reactions.” - G. Reade, Stanwell Park PS
