A documentary following the history of the telescope from the days of Copernicus to recent findings from the Hubble Telescope; 400 Years of the Telescope opens in 17th century Florence, Italy, with Galileo training his spyglass on the heavens and discovering that Jupiter has four moons; Venus has phases like the Moon; and most shocking of all: the Earth is not the center of the universe.

        Comments about PBS 400 Years of the Telescope DVD:

        I've always had a mild fascination with astronomy, and when I found out that this was done through our local PBS station, it was a no brainer to get it.

        It shed background on the telescope that I didn't know, and spoke about what the future holds in new technology. Even if you have just a mild interest in our solar system, and outer space, you'll enjoy it.

        I just had a new 100 inch HD projection system put in my home. This is the way to travel to other worlds in our lifetime. More More HD Blue ray big sound. Do yourself a favor sit close and get out the headphones.

        This movie takes a good look at the development of the telescope. As a teacher, I believe the infomation is presented in a well-organized and thought-out manner. It would be appropriate for early middle school on up. A great movie!

        Comments about PBS 400 Years of the Telescope DVD:

        I saw this documentary on PBS TV a little while back and was immediately hooked on its content. I knew about various topics discussed from school, but this film put it all together from the start of exploring space to today's space science. This film really gets one interested in space, both history, technology, and life's unanswered questions. A must see for inquisitive people of all ages.
