Description: See the mind-blowing Journey To Space movie at NASA's own five-story IMAX® 3D Theater.
Join us for “Journey To Space,” a brand new 3D IMAX® film showcasing NASA’s bold plans for the future, including landing astronauts on Mars and capturing asteroids. Through visually stunning imagery and extensive interviews with astronauts Chris Ferguson, commander of the final shuttle mission, and Serena Aunon, a new astronaut chosen for future flights, as well as narration by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart, “Journey To Space” gives a sweeping overview of NASA’s past space accomplishments, current activities and future plans.
Using spectacular space footage shot by astronauts in crystal clear IMAX cinematography, this inspirational new film puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle Program and its astronauts, such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope and assembling the International Space Station (ISS). Together, the space shuttle and ISS programs have taught humankind how to live, build and conduct science in space, setting the stage for the deep space exploration missions to come.
The film concludes with a realistic scenario of how astronauts will actually get to Mars, live there, and then return home after a two-and-a-half-year mission. During this incredible IMAX 3D journey, you’ll meet the icons of our future in space: the Orion crew capsule; the Space Launch System that will carry Orion and its crew into deep space; and Olympus, an inflatable transportation habitat that will provide astronauts the work area and living space necessary for long-duration missions.
Don’t miss this chance to see how NASA has been transitioning from the end of the space shuttle era to a much more ambitious future that will forever change how we live and operate in space.
