Journey to Space 3D

Narrated by Patrick Stewart


Come see the exciting plans that are underway for the next giant leap into space: landing humans on Mars. Journey to Space 3D takes audiences on a behind-the-scenes tour of the international effort to prepare and send astronauts to Mars within the next 20 years. The film is also an inspiring reflection on the remarkable achievements of NASA’s Space Shuttle program, including the assembly and launch of the International Space Station and the deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope. Missions like these have taught us how to live, build, and conduct science in space and helped to build the foundation for future space exploration.

Culminating in a virtual voyage to the Red Planet on our 7-story IMAX screen, Journey to Space 3D is a celebration of space exploration, a tribute to international cooperation in space research, and a vision of our near future beyond Earth’s orbit. Featuring footage of Endeavour and the California Science Center!

Endeavour admission included with your IMAX ticket! Take your IMAX ticket to the Endeavour queue on the 2nd floor for admission.
