Giant Screen Films’ Journey to Space 3D
A tribute to space exploration and our generation's next giant leap - Coming May 26 to IMAX
In the past half century, humans have punched through the stratosphere, walked on the moon, and lived continuously in orbit. In the coming decades, our unquenchable curiosity will take our species to the surface of another world. Strap in for the next giant leap. Next stop … Mars!
By using 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 a brilliant narration by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart, Journey To Space gives a sweeping overview of past space accomplishments, current activities and future plans.
The film uses the most spectacular space footage – including unique views of Earth and operations in space – such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. It then goes on to show how the Shuttle launched and assembled the International Space Station (ISS). Together, these programs have taught us how to live, build and conduct science in space. The ISS will continue operating in space until 2024, and the film shows how it is building a foundation for the next giant leaps into space.
The story concludes with a fascinating, realistic scenario of how astronauts will actually get to Mars, live there for a long duration, and then return home after a two-and-a-half-year mission.
