Program Description

Hobbled by defective eyesight because of its original, bungled prescription, the Hubble Space Telescope (named after astronomer Edwin Hubble) was recently repaired in a dramatic Space Shuttle mission. NOVA follows the exploits of astronauts who saved the day, and the stunning work that Hubble has performed in the months since its repair.
