The film “Deep Field: The Impossible Magnitude of our Universe” focuses on the story of “Hubble Deep Field”, an iconic portrait of the universe revealed by the Hubble Space Telescope. It features Hubble’s stunning imagery and 11 computer-generated visualizations of distant galaxies, nebulas and star clusters.

The music score includes more than 8,000 voices from 120 countries, all aged 4 - 87 are seen and heard in the global choir. Plus, the visualization team from Space Telescope Science Institute worked with 59 Productions to revise and adapt seven previously produced sequences to fit into the symphonic and astronomical theme.

The two screenings will be offered with a special introduction by Eric Whitacre. The first screening will start at 1 PM, and a second at 4 PM, both inside the IMAX® Theater at the visitor complex.
