Space exploration, our greatest adventure, is having a big impact on our lives.

It is helping us to discover a universe of unimaginable scale and beauty, and it is reaching down into our world and influencing the way in which we live. Produced by The Franklin Institute, together with Sky-Skan, and narrated by Top Gear’s James May, this technologically advanced Planetarium show takes audiences on an incredible journey from the far reaches of our known universe to our planet.

It is an extraordinary story of human ingenuity and incredible engineering, describing how the technology that transports us through space is paving the way for the devices and apps we use every day.
