Treat your students to the ultimate field trip! Through the power of
IMAX® 3-D, your class can journey through distant galaxies to explore the
mysteries of our celestial surroundings, accompany space-walking
astronauts as they attempt the most difficult tasks in NASA history, and
experience never-before-seen 3-D flights through Hubble imagery.

Visit www.imax.com/hubble [http://www.imax.com/hubble] to download
classroom activities inspired by the film to further extend the learning
experience into the classroom. Curriculum tie-ins include science and
technology, communication, critical thinking, and more!

Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, Hubble 3D reunites the Space Station 3D
filmmaking team, led by producer/director Toni Myers. James Neihouse,
director of photography, also doubles as the astronaut crew trainer. Judy
Carroll is associate producer. Graeme Ferguson, co-founder of IMAX and
pioneer producer of many IMAX space films, is executive producer. Hubble
3D is an IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures production, in cooperation with
the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Exclusive IMAX engagements of Hubble 3D are taking place in March/April
2010. The film will have a wider release in August 2010.
