Hubble: 15 Years of Discovery [Import]
From the Contributor
About The Music: The two German musicians, Axel Kornmesser and Markus Löffler, first encountered each other in 1997. After some common work in different groups the talented singer Axel and the many-sided artist Markus decided to start a new project as a composer duo in 2002. They called it movetwo and began to write various pop songs with lyrics in both German and English. It was an exiting process as Axel was influenced by rock and funky music while Markus prefers jazz and soul and within the melting pot they created their own popular style. In 2004 Axel and Markus were approached to participate to the European Space Agency's Hubble movie, Hubble - 15 Years of Discovery. The collaboration was a success and movetwo started moving into a new musical field and is ready to compose amazing film soundtracks.

The photos as well as the graphics are excellent.
I use this DVD as a video lecture in my EarthSci/Astronomy class.
The kids are impressed with its technical aspects as as well as the history, which they knew nothing of.
For the laymen this was OK, you weren't left behind too often though you do have to concentrate at times. Those with greater understanding of astronomy may wish for more. There wasn't a lot of 'wow' factor in how the information was presented and I did end up wishing they'd spent more time talking about how the thing itself was built rather than go off talking about astronomical matters in general. One got the feeling - and it was very prevalent in the extras - that there was a certain amount of filler here to pad out the time.
Having said all that I did enjoy the DVD. As someone who knew only the name of the Hubble telescope it did teach me a lot and piqued my interest in a few things. Some of the imagery used was good and while some of the bonus stuff was filler different parts of it would no doubt appeal to different viewers.
Pick this up cheap if it sounds like your kind of thing.
