Episode 1: Driving The Telescope (Hubble – Eye in the Sky miniseries)

Episode 1: Driving the Telescope – Visit Hubble’s control center to learn about the challenges and techniques of performing extraordinarily detailed observations with an orbiting space telescope. Tour the rarely seen, life-size simulator at NASA that helps engineers and operators investigate problems and test new solutions before implementing them on the real telescope in space.

This series, Hubble – Eye in the Sky, takes you behind the scenes into the world of Hubble Space Telescope operations. Discover the strategies needed to run a bus-sized observatory as it speeds around Earth at 17,000 miles per hour, and find out how Hubble collects the incredible images and groundbreaking data that have transformed humanity’s vision of space. Witness the ingenuity that keeps such a complex and remote machine working to investigate the mysteries of the universe for more than 30 years.
