Passport to the Universe

Every day, as new scientific discoveries reveal answers to cosmic mysteries, we wonder how we fit into this vast universe. Taking audiences on an unforgettable voyage of billions of light years, Passport to the Universe, produced by the American Museum of Natural History and narrated by Tom Hanks, is an incredible journey from our home planet and the Milky Way galaxy to the edge of the universe. Audiences fly beneath the rings of Saturn, into the heart of the Orion Nebula, to the edge of the observable universe, and back to Earth through a black hole, experiencing these and other stunning cosmic destinations as never before possible.

Created in collaboration with NASA, Passport to the Universe relies on AMNH’s Digital Universe, an unprecedented database containing over three billion stars, and on data and visualizations from the world’s top astrophysics and research institutions. The combination of these incredible resources results in an immersive experience that educates and inspires, taking audiences on a virtual tour to the limits of the universe and back again.
