It's what's known as a "kernel oops," a superset of kernel panics. If this is a new installation of Ubuntu, the problem is most likely due to corruption of the installation media.

If it's not a new installation, try loading an older kernel by holding Shift during boot to access Grub's boot menu. If that starts up alright, you can report a bug by running ubuntu-bug linux-image-2.6.35-24-generic.
