Brilliantly narrated by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart, Journey To Space gives a sweeping overview of humanity’s accomplishments in space, as well as our ongoing activities and future plans.
Journey To Space puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle program and its intrepid space pioneers. It uses the most spectacular space footage (including unique views of Earth and operations in space) such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. It then goes on to show how the shuttle launched and assembled the International Space Station (ISS). Together, these programs have taught us how to live, build and conduct scientific experiments in space. The ISS will continue operating in space until 2024, and the film shows how it is building a foundation for the next giant leaps into space, concluding with a fascinating, realistic scenario of how astronauts will actually get to Mars, live there for long durations, and then return home after a two-and-a-half-year mission.

Just add this one to your collection, even if you dont yet have 4K capability. For those with 4K, pop it in your player and be amazed. --Home Theater Forum, May 2016
Early adopters will find plenty to amaze themselves (and their friends and relatives) with here since the technical merits are so outstanding. Highly recommended. --Bluray.com, May 2016
Shout! Factory knocked it out of the park with their first 4K disc. Kudos for including three formats (4K, 3D Blu-ray, and 2D Blu-ray) in this set, as well as featuring all of the extras in both 4K and 1080p. While the documentary is interesting for fans of space exploration, the video quality is excellent and the images are spectacular. It gets a very strong recommendation --DVD Talk, May 2016

Let me start off by saying that when they claim this is narrated by our beloved Captain Picard they aren't telling the entire truth. All told he narrates about 4 min of this entire "film" and the rest of it is narrated by a couple other people.
Now for the video quality itself. If you are buying this for the same reasons I did, which was to see awesome space stuff in 4k HDR as well as watch a 1080p version in 3d while learning cool stuff then I suggest you DONT BUY IT.
First most of the footage isn't shot in 4k or even 1080p. The majority of footage shown is stock footage from various other sources most of which is standard definition resolution. The stuff that is in 4k is very minimal and clearly reused IMAX footage from something else.
This is stuffed to the brim with stock footage presented in a small box in the middle of your 4k tv. Even the 1080p 3d disc has the same issue on a 1080p TV. They use tons of old non hd footage and stick it in a box that sits in the middle of your tv.
The 3d parts themselves just like the 4k parts are minimal. They do alot of taking old static images and making a person pop out of the background but most of the video is not shot in 3d or even presented in 3d. The footage that is shot with real 3d cameras looks great as does the 4k stuff but it's so minimal I feel that the product description is false advertising and that's just unfair.
Don't buy this looking for great 4k, don't buy this to learn cool new things or to hear Patrick Stewart narrate and don't buy it for the 3d because added together each makes up about 10% of this movie.
There are better options out there so don't be sucked in by the lower than average price for a UHD Blu-ray. In fact there are more informative videos on YouTube some of which are in 4k albeit not as high quality 4k as this.
Save your money for something better. Something that doesn't misrepresent what it is to earn a quick buck. You didn't buy a nice 4k screen and uhd Blu-ray player to watch standard definition content. I know I didn't.
Whoever did the sound mixing should be sent to an isolation chamber.
