I don't know how to save the "movie," but you can track down most of the images by Googling on "<object name> Hubble". For example, here's (http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/newsdesk/archive/releases/1999/42/) the Hubble image of the Trifid Nebula that's used there.

There is no way that I am aware of to convert SWF to mpg or quicktime. You would have to remake the sequence using images gathered from the internet as ToSeek suggests and then add in the music track.

That said, why don't you just download the SWF file?

Right-click on this link and select "Save Target As..." (for Windows) and just save the source file:

You can play that file, as is, in your browser.

Thanks Lance & ToSeek

I'll try downloading a new flash & shock player and it might help me save the file as mpeg
