You don't say what your "later use" is. Assuming that you just want to load
the data again into another Python session, the simplest solution is to use

     save(hess, "hess.pickle")

You can save any Python object to a file in this way. However, the file format
is specific to Python, so you cannot easily read the data into other programs.

For saving to a file, use the same as above:

    save(modes, "modes.pickle")

For visualizing a single mode using VMD:


assuming you have set the environment variable PDBVIEWER correctly as
explained in the MMTK manual.

You might want to study my tutorial on normal modes, which contains
many examples:
