Journey To Space is a fascinating documentary about space travel. The film starts with the Space Shuttle, which is the world’s first reusable, piloted space craft. Even more impressive is that the Space Shuttle was powered by a computer less powerful than today’s smartphones. The documentary also spent a little time on the International Space Station (ISS), but most of the movie covered our future journey to Mars. In my opinion, Journey To Space is a must-see documentary for everyone. Thanks to Shout! Factory, I’m giving away three Blu-rays on my dad blog. Journey To Space is available now on Blu-ray and 4K. Continue reading for some fun science experiments and to find out how to win the Blu-ray.
While the Space Shuttle represents our space travel in the past, the Orion represents the future of deep-space exploration, which even includes a journey to Mars and back. It will take about six months to travel to Mars (one way), but the entire trip is expected to last two and half years. Solar panels will help power the Orion, and the Olympus inflatable habitat will give astronauts space to stretch and work. The inflatable habitat is about 2250 cubic meters in size, which is about twice the size of the International Space Station.

Journey To Space Blu-ray Synopsis
Brilliantly narrated by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart, Journey To Space gives a sweeping overview of humanity’s accomplishments in space, as well as our ongoing activities and future plans. Journey To Space puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle program and its intrepid space pioneers. It uses the most spectacular space footage – including unique views of Earth and operations in space – such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. It then goes on to show how the shuttle launched and assembled the International Space Station (ISS). Together, these programs have taught us how to live, build and conduct scientific experiments in space. The ISS will continue operating in space until 2024, and the film shows how it is building a foundation for the next giant leaps into space, concluding with a fascinating, realistic scenario of how astronauts will actually get to Mars, live there for long durations, and then return home after a two-and-a-half-year mission.
