The "visually stunning" journey begins on Earth, heads deep into the universe, then returns home via a black hole. Along the way, viewers are privy to footage from the Hubble telescope as well as supercomputers stationed around the world. Narrated by Tom Hanks, Passport was co-authored by Ann Druyan, the widow of Carl Sagan, and put together by the American Museum of Natural History and NASA.
"It's a far cry from shows of ten years ago," Taylor says. "It's like riding on the tip of a rocket."
Passport opens today at the newly reopened, state-of-the-art Gates Planetarium, inside the museum at 2001 Colorado Boulevard. Tickets are $5.50 to $8 (a combination museum/planetarium ticket is $13).
