A new NASA giant-screen documentary on the future of human space travel was narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart.
The documentary is called Journey to Space.
Journey to Space is “a new large-format movie about the concepts, hardware and people carrying out the next generation missions to make humanity a space-faring civilization.”
“It was a delight to contribute to this exciting film project,” said Stewart. “[Journey to Space] will let audiences young and old know how surprisingly close we are to sending humans into deep space.”
“Patrick’s narration is the perfect icing on our space-story cake,” said Mark Krenzien, the director of Journey to Space. “Everyone in the studio was beyond impressed by his enthusiasm for the project and his dedication to every nuance and detail.”
“No longer science fiction, a human mission to Mars is in the planning stages, and major steps are being taken to make it a reality within a generation,” said Bob Kresser, chief executive officer of K2 Films. “Our goal in making this film was to tie together the actual hardware being built with the tremendous planning under way that will make the next steps in space exploration the most far-reaching in our history.”
Journey to Space “features scenes filmed at NASA facilities and by astronauts in space, as well as animation of NASA‘s next-generation Space Launch System heavy-lift rocket, Orion crew capsule, and Olympus, a commercial concept for an inflatable transit habitat for long-duration missions.”
Journey to Space will “launch into select theaters” beginning next month.
