Journey to Space Opening
Through visually stunning imagery, and in collaboration with leading space experts, Journey To Space showcases the exciting plans NASA and the space community are working on and the challenges they must overcome to carry out missions, once considered science fiction, and now science fact, such as landing astronauts on Mars. The film calls attention to the reality that the space program did not die with the end of the Shuttle Program in 2011. It is instead, vibrantly alive.
Journey To Space also gives a fitting tribute to the Space Shuttle Program and the 355 astronauts who flew on the 135 Shuttle missions. This historical chapter in the film is in the first one-third of the movie and describes how the Shuttle took many of the big steps that helped us understand how to live and operate in space. In fact, it’s the lessons learned during those many steps that have enabled the future missions covered in the film. Screens Daily.
