The Hong Kong Space Museum’s new 3D dome show, “Voyager: The Never-Ending Journey 3D”, will give viewers the opportunity to see some of the findings made by NASA’S longest and farthest space expedition. The screenings will run until September 30.

Voyagers 1 and 2 began their interstellar journeys in 1977 and have been travelling for nearly 50 years. They were the first batch of spacecraft to take high-resolution images of Jupiter and its Great Red Spot. Close-up images of the giant rings of Saturn taken by Voyager 1 helped scientists discover that the rings were mainly comprised of ice crystals.

Some of the other footage that are part of the show include images of Jupiter’s moon Io, the most geologically active celestial body in the Solar System, as well as nitrogen- and dust-spewing geysers on the south pole of Neptune’s moon Triton. Watch images of the ice-covered surface of the Jupiter moon Europa, and the diverse landscape of Saturn moon Enceladus.
