Faster Than Light: The Dream of Interstellar Flight
An immersive film exploring the long-standing quest to develop spacecraft with enough power and velocity to reach the stars.
We are right now discovering possibly-habitable worlds around other stars, including ones in the neighbourhood of our Sun. Yet how will we ever reach them? What will it take, for example, to travel to the planets we know circle our Sun’s nearest neighbour, Proxima Centauri?
Based on real science and modern engineering, this 360° film takes audiences on a thrilling journey into the future, aboard laser-driven space sails, anti-matter engines and even warp drives right out of science fiction - entirely new technologies designed to achieve ultra-high speeds.
How far can our future technologies take us?
On the wings of imagination, yet within the limits of scientific possibility, embark on a breathtaking journey across the Universe.
