Shout! Factory will Journey To Space for its first foray into a line of new, immersive, Giant Screen films in the visually stunning 4K Ultra HD format. The film which was released on June 7, 2016, is available on Blu-ray, as well as a 4K UHD + 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray 2-disc combo. It is wonderfully narrated by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart. The movie gives a sweeping overview of humanity’s accomplishments in outerspace, as well as our ongoing activities and future plans.
Journey to Space helps to put into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Shuttle Program and its intrepid pioneers. It uses the some of the most spectacular footage, including unique views of Earth and operations in space, such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Telescope. It then goes on to show how the shuttle launched and how they assembled the International Space Station (ISS) ,which will continue operations until 2024.
Together, all of these programs continue to teach us how to live, build and conduct scientific experiments in space. The film then goes on to show us how the ISS continues to build a foundation for the next giant leaps in exploration. It concludes with a fascinating, realistic scenario of how future astronauts will actually get to ( as well as live on ) Mars. How they will live there for long durations, and also how they will then return home after a two-and-a-half-year mission.
My kids have been getting more and more interested in sciences and space over the past couple of years. The kid’s school projects have started to look at outerspace, our galaxy and the various planets. There have even been a couple of discussions about Pluto. They went as far as discussing the differences in scientific findings that have changed it’s designation to a planet again. Even more fun is the discussions about living on Mars because of how much the kids liked the concept. We were totally thrilled to get a chance to watch this movie and see so many different aspects of space exploration. For the Geeks in all of us (like my husband), Patrick Stewart’s narration makes this project even more spectacular.
