Journey to Space 3D Movie Review

To Mars and Beyond 

Smithsonian Plot: Discover how NASA’s shuttle program has led to its exciting new era of space exploration. Learn about the important role of the International Space Station (ISS.) Uncover what NASA and the space community are working on, and the challenges they face to carry out bold missions such as capturing asteroids and landing astronauts on Mars. Narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart.

Carl Sagan once said, "We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still." Journey to Space 3D explores "what's next" in riveting fashion, with special peaks aboard the ISS, a "six-bedroom house" in outer space that serves as a launching board to Mars (and beyond.) Space exploration didn't die with the retirement of the Space Shuttle: Apparently, it's just getting started. We're still a couple of decades away from making the 30-month roundtrip to Mars; but this documentary shows us just how close we are. Impressive visuals (especially Endeavour's liftoff) and plenty of uplifting material. Space... the final frontier. Indeed.
