Narrated by Ewan McGregor, Astronaut addresses just what it takes to be part of the incredible endeavor that is the exploration of space. 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.
The Powerhouses of the Universe – Stars
Journey to the furthest reaches of our galaxy and experience both the awesome beauty and destructive power of stars. Every star has a story. Some are as old as time, faint and almost forgotten. Others burn bright and end their lives in powerful explosions. New stars are created every day, born of vast clouds of gas and dust. Through every phase of their existence, stars release the energy that lights the Universe. Take in all their power in our presentation of STARS!
