Space was Never Spacier
The biggest science fiction film ever made – literally!
The second (short) feature film produced for the giant Imax 3-D screen tells the story of a permanent orbiting satellite community a hundred years in the future. When the city runs low on water, scientists send a rocket to fetch a hunk of ice from a comet.
The highlight comes when one of them lands a spacecraft on the comet to fix the malfunctioning rocket – a really dazzling sequence.
Imax 3-D has yet to produce a feature that outshines the process itself, but these features are well ahead of mere rollercoaster footage.
