A spectacular journey into deep space, "Hidden Universe" brings to life the farthest reaches of our Universe with real images of deep space phenomena captured by the world’s most powerful telescopes, seen on-screen and in 3D for the first time. The film allows audiences to explore the earliest galaxies, watch stars being born in vivid clouds of gas and dust, tour the surface of Mars, and witness images of distant celestial structures including exquisite views of the Sun, all in stunning IMAX 3D. "Hidden Universe" was filmed in 15/70mm on location in Chile’s Atacama Desert at the European Southern Observatory’s flagship facility, the Very Large Telescope (VLT) and the international astronomy facility ALMA, as well as in Australia’s Kakadu National Park. The film features 3D simulations of deep space phenomena based on actual astronomical data gathered by the VLT and ALMA telescopes, as well as other telescopes such as the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
