Lifting Hubble from cargo bay image

Lifting Hubble from cargo bay image: "In the new film 'IMAX: Hubble 3D,' viewers are brought inside the story of NASA's attempt to do last-chance repairs on the Hubble Space Telescope. After being initially launched into space in 1990, it was discovered that the telescope's mirror had a 1/50th of an inch-size flaw that compromised its focus and ultimately resulted in a 1993 repair mission."
