A Movie and Star Gazing at Levitt Image
More than 300 persons tonight attended Westport Cinema Initiative’s sneak preview screening of “Saving Hubble” at the Levitt Pavilion. The 70-minute independent documentary film examines NASA’s decision in 2004 to cancel the famed Hubble Space Telescope and introduces people who united to save it. The telescope was carried into orbit by a Space Shuttle in 1990 and remains in operation. The Levitt audience heard from an esteemed panel including the filmmaker, David Gaynes, about the impact of Hubble on humanity. They also listened to the sound of the trio Red Lotus and they viewed the stars through telescopes provided by the Westport Astronomical Society and the Astronomical Society of New Haven.
