descriptionCOSMIC VOYAGE begins on Earth, firmly grounded in human perspective, and asks a fascinating question: Where exactly do we stand in the vastness of the cosmos? Where, between quark and quasar, is our place in space and time? You depart from Venice, where Galileo first demonstrated the use of the telescope. In 26 "powers of ten" stages, you ascend through our solar system and the Milky Way to the outer edges of the observable universe. Returning to Earth, you enter a drop of water and descend through sixteen ever-diminishing circles to the universe's tiniest particle, a quark. The film features a "cosmic zoom" as viewers are transported across millions of years as galaxies collide, the solar system forms and life begins on a young planet Earth.
DESTINY IN SPACE gives viewers an exciting glimpse into the future of space exploration. Featuring never-before-seen giant-screen images of the space shuttle in orbit around the Earth and thrilling fly-overs of Mars and Venus, the film focuses on the dramatic partnership of humans and robots working in space. An IMAX camera deployed via satellite provides rare views of the shuttle, in its entirety, orbiting 200 miles above Earth. Audiences are with the astronauts as they work in Spacelab and outside the shuttle in the hazardous vacuum of space, performing a spectacularly successful servicing mission of the Hubble Space Telescope.
