The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home follows a child and their robot friend on an amazing adventure from the depths of outer space to their own front door. The experience is different for every child as aspects of the storyline and imagery are personalized based upon where they actually live — from the country flag on the spaceship and the view of Earth from outer space, to seeing familiar pictures of key country, city and town locations as the adventure gets closer to its conclusion where the child returns to their actual home address.
The story is further brought vividly to life utilizing NASA’s open source photography of space, and mapping technologies that enable a close-up flyby of the child’s actual neighborhood and landmarks near their house!
Throughout the journey, children are encouraged to think more deeply about the wonder of the universe, its incredible scale and richness, and their place in it.
