Astronauts are our modern-day explorers. But how do they get up there? How do they train for space? What happens to their bodies while on a mission? What hazards do they face? What do they learn while living in space? This immersive movie, narrated by Ewan McGregor, will give you answers in dramatic and sometimes humorous ways. Experience a rocket launch from inside the body of an astronaut. Explore the amazing worlds of inner and outer space, from floating around the International Space Station to maneuvering through microscopic regions of the human body. Discover the perils that lurk in space as we subject Chad, our test astronaut, to everything that space has to throw at him. During this 1-hour long show we will also help you identify the brightest planets and constellations visible in the sky.
