NASA Hubble Telescope in 3D

NASA Hubble Telescope in IMAX 3D

On Jake's Rolex Watch Blog we spend much time exploring earth, from the DEEP-SEA to the mountains and of course, the heavens. We are also have a feature with some really cool NASA desktop wallpaper which you can find by clicking the NASA Desktop Wallpaper label at the bottom of this post.

Anything having to do with NASA's Space Shuttle missions is always fascinating and the subject of Rolex watches being worn in Space is always interesting, like one of NASA's most decorated astronauts, Leroy Chaio who wore his Pepsi GMT on 4 Space Shuttle missions, including the one where he flew on the Space Shuttle to The International Space Station to lead Expedition 10, which allowed him to live on the International Space Station for 6.5 Months.

This special IMAX movie required a special 700-pound IMAX camera that shot from a single, mile-long strip of film!!! That is a lot of film!!!!

This High Definition IMAX NASA video preview is mind-boggling as it covers NASA's Space Shuttle Atlantis attempts to repair the Hubble Telescope. If you have the new 21.5 inch or 27 inch Apple iMac, you definitely want to check out this stunning HD footage in full screen–and turn the volume way up!!!!
