Journey To Space, which has been playing in IMAX theaters around the country over the last year, is coming to home video on June 7th, released as a 4K UHD + 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray 2-disc combo and a standard Blu-ray from Shout! Factory.
If you’ve got a 4K UHD television and a 4k disc player, this is exactly the kind of thing you want to show off your investment. The transfer is spectacular and the movie clocks in at 46 minutes, so your friends and neighbors can’t claim they don’t have time to sit down with you and enjoy the experience.
The film illustrates just how exciting and ambitious NASA’s next era promises to be. In showcasing the goals NASA and the space industry are working towards, including space travel to Mars and capturing asteroids, the film puts an end to the perception that the space program died with the end of the Space Shuttle Program.
Beautifully narrated by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart, and featuring extensive interviews with astronauts Chris Ferguson (Commander of the final shuttle mission) and Serena Aunon (a new astronaut chosen for future flights), Journey To Space also puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle program and its daring space pioneers during their 135 missions.
We’ve got a clip from the documentary below.
Journey To Space offers spectacular space footage and gorgeous views of Earth as it shows operations in space, such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope, and building the International Space Station (ISS). These incredibly important programs taught us how to live, build and conduct science in space. The ISS will continue to be in operation until 2024, and the film shows how it is building a foundation for the next giant leaps NASA will be taking, leaps that will forever change how we live and operate in space as a species. An impressive and realistic depiction of how astronauts plan to travel to Mars and back as part of a two-and-a-half-year mission concludes this sensational film.
