Editorial Reviews

Space, the final frontier, comes into focus for the armchair astronaut with Hubble's Canvas, a series of 30-minute programs that reveal the artistry and explains the science of outer space. Hubble's Canvas is narrated by noted astronomy columnist Ivan Semeniuk.

From its lofty perch high above earth's atmosphere, the Hubble Space Telescope can see both nearby and distant objects with unwavering clarity. With its breathtaking views of deep space the Hubble Space Telescope bridges the separate domains of art and science. Its images form a direct connection between the human spirit and the most powerful forces of nature.

The remarkable story of one of humankind's most stunning scientific achievements, Hubble's Canvas provides key insights and showcases striking images of breathtaking beauty.

This is truly a very good series (if short) about the discoveries made and the images from the Hubble Space Telescope. But while the DVD set is decent enough why have the producers not made a Blu-ray version available? This series was originally shown (and continues to be shown) on Oasis HD, a high-definition specialty television channel. If any material deserved high definition it is the spectacular images from Hubble. This would have been a five star rating if I had been reviewing the (currently non-existent) HD version.
