Nominated for an Academy Award, this 36-minute IMAX production offers a state of the art, computer generated journey through the universe, and tries to pinpoint the role of human beings cohabitating within its vastness. Among the topics included are a variety of the greatest scientific theories known to exist — some of which had never before been visualized on film — as well as a guided tour through the cosmos and solar system, and a look at the nature of black holes and exploding supernovas.
This IMAX offering presents us with not only one but two journeys – one in space (going from the entire universe to quarks) and one in time (going from the first cells to human beings).
These are both monumental enterprises, but unfortunately this half-hour movie can only offer us an inkling of either. It presents some beautiful images, although the journeys themselves lose much in the translation to the TV screen. Only recommended for those who want some relaxation. (Barnes & Noble)
