Pillars of Creation - Hubble's best images. BBC.

The “Pillars of Creation” is perhaps the most famous of the many images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The structures are columns of cool interstellar gas and dust that incubate new stars.

Cat's Eye - Hubble's best images. BBC.

Planetary nebulae like NGC 6543 form when Sun-like stars gently eject their outer gaseous layers. Better known as the “Cat’s Eye” nebula, this was one of the first such phenomena to be discovered.

Eyeball - Hubble's best images. BBC.

A pulse of light from the red supergiant star V838 Monocerotis expands into space, reflecting off surrounding shells of dust to create a multicoloured “eyeball”.

Cone Nebula - Hubble's best images. BBC.

In 2002, Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys captured this image of the Cone Nebula, a craggy-looking “mountaintop” of cold gas and dust 2,500 light years away.

Messier 64 - Evil Eye - Hubble's best images. BBC.

The collision of two galaxies left the merged system, called Messier 64, with bizarre internal motions. A dark band of dust in front of the bright nucleus has given rise to its nickname of the “Evil Eye” galaxy.

Sombrero - Messier 104 - Hubble's best images. BBC.

The majestic “Sombrero” galaxy, Messier 104, is one of the most photogenic of star systems. Its hallmark is a brilliant white, bulbous core encircled by thick dust lanes.

10,000 Galaxies - Hubble's best images. BBC.

Galaxies stud this view from the Hubble Ultra Deep Field – the deepest visible light image of the cosmos. This core sample of the Universe cuts across billions of light years and captured some 10,000 galaxies.

Ring Nebula M57 in 1998 - Hubble's best images. BBC.

Hubble took this picture of the Ring Nebula (M57) in 1998. A dying star floats at the centre of the blue haze of gas.

Hourglass Nebula - Hubble's best images. BBC.

The Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 on Hubble took this picture of a young planetary nebula located about 8,000 light years away. It is better known as the “Hourglass Nebula” because of its shape.

Crab Nebula exploded in a Supernova - Hubble's best images. BBC.

The Crab Nebula is the expanding remnant of a star that exploded in a supernova. This violent event was recorded by Japanese and Chinese astronomers in the year 1054.

Cosmic Pearls - Hubble's best images. BBC.

The bright ring shown in this image of the supernova 1987A has been likened to a string of “cosmic pearls”. A supersonic shock wave unleashed by the stellar blast is heating a ring of gas, causing it to glow.

DOCUMENTARY

In September of 1918, soldiers at an army base near Boston suddenly began to die. Doctors found the victims’ lungs filled with fluid and strangely blue. They identified the cause of the death as influenza, but it was unlike any strain ever seen. It would become the worst epidemic in American history, killing over 600,000 — more than all the nation’s combat deaths this century combined.

Drawing on remarkable archival photographs and film footage, and interviews with survivors and medical historians, Influenza 1918 tells the powerful story of America’s worst health crisis. Despite recent triumphs over many infectious diseases, medical science proved powerless against the killer virus. In desperation, people turned to folk remedies: garlic, camphor balls, sugar cubes soaked with kerosene. Frantic officials closed schools, factories, and churches, and everyone was required to wear a mask. But the virus was unstoppable. Relentless. Lethal. Curiously, this painful event has nearly faded from our national memory. But as this gripping medical thriller proves, it is a story that deserves never to be forgotten.

REVIEWS

“Producer/Director Robert Kenner has devised an artful interpretation of this grim episode from our history, combining archival film footage and still photos with stylistic devices that re-create the mood, tone, and settings of the times.”
—New York Daily News

“Influenza 1918 errs on the side of mood and artsiness, but it plays like a bio-thriller straight out of Hollywood.” —New York Post

“It’s one of the finest programs I have ever seen.” — Orlando Sentinel
“Chilling…intensely moving” — Wall Street Journal
