Earlier this month, on June 7th, the exciting Journey To Space film that has been so popular at IMAX theaters and science centers all over the country, was released!

We got to check out a copy of this AMAZING DVD this week,
 and are thrilled that we can share it with you!

Brilliantly narrated by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart ( Star Trek - seriously could an IMAX Space film NOT have him as narrator? It's just PERFECT!), gives a sweeping overview of humanity's accomplishments in space, as well as our ongoing activities and future plans. Journey To Space puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle program and its intrepid space pioneers. It 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, concluding with a fascinating, realistic scenario of how astronauts will actually get to Mars, live there for long durations, and then return home after a two-and-a-half-year mission

Special Features Include: 

-Behind-The-Scenes Footage
-Photo Gallery

Check out the trailer:


This DVD is not only educational, the footage is absolutely spectacular thanks to the 4x and 8x filming, and how the producers were able to bring it to your home screen! The entire family will find this DVD interesting, as there are so many aspects of the space program that get talked about within the film. For those born after the heyday of the Challenger program, the DVD is an eye opener to how important the 'space truck' became, once NASA realized how reusable (NASA goes green!) and productive it was. The film shows the contributions made by daring space pioneers, like Sally Ride, who Miss Grace choce to do her end-of-the-year Book report on! She was thrilled to see the program she went through and how it has evolved! She can't wait until our next dance competition, which is in Houston, so she can visit the Space Center there! It was really interesting for both of us to see how NASA isn’t just resting right now, but developing plans for their next era, which includes space travel to Mars and capturing asteroids! 

If your kids LOVE all things Space, they will adore this DVD!

Miss Grace was SO enraptured, she designed her own version if the ISS:
