(From an adult's viewpoint) - I found this "arm-chair" cosmic voyage documentary (from 1996) to be only marginally educational when looking at it from a strictly scientific perspective.

I repeatedly found that a fair amount of the information being recited here by its bored-sounding narrator was, basically, just recycled data and second-hand knowledge which, of course, was made to appear significantly more interesting by an onslaught of dazzling CG imagery.

And, speaking bluntly about some of this science-documentary's computer graphics - I certainly wasn't all that impressed a lot of the time. I mean - If you ask me - There were certainly times when some of these glittering images actually looked downright hokey and, yes, almost laughable to this viewer.

Anyway - I'd say that the only thing that saved this IMAX "Cosmic Voyage" presentation from eventually deteriorating into a literal snore-fest was its short running-time of only 35 minutes.

Great to watch if you are curious about the size of the Cosmos. You gain an appreciation for who we are and where we reside ( Earth - the mote of dust).
Narrated by Morgan Freeman, he takes us on a journey across the grand expanse of the Universe to acquire an idea of what it means to be human, and our insignificance compared to that of space. Not only that, but the viewer is taken to another vast world, comparably similar in size to space, but inversely the size. As big as the Cosmos are, a drop of water holds a world beyond belief. No matter the direction you take, incredibly vast worlds exsist on either side of our visible specturm.
