To infinity and beyond…

Jetting off into space and experiencing the vast cosmos is one of those experiences only a handful of humans can witness. If you’ve ever wondered what floating around up above the world so high would be like, this immersive exhibition at Infinity des Lumières is one you have to explore.

The digital art gallery in Dubai Mall has teamed up with Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) to launch a new limited-edition immersive experience that will transport you to the stars.

Destination Cosmos: The Ultimate Challenge is an original and exclusive production created by Culturespaces and CNES (National Centre for Space Studies in France) to celebrate the agency’s 60th anniversary. The film will take you on a journey to the cosmos starting from the rainforest in Guyana until you find yourself in the heart of the universe among the rings of Saturn and more.

The best part? You don’t have to belt up and sit in one place. You are encouraged to move around the vast space and explore. You will be surrounded by 3,000 HD digital moving images of stars, planets, nebulae and supernovas – all of which will make you feel like your floating in space.

Additionally, MBRSC will also release footage of the Emirates Mars Mission and Hope Probe during the experience.
