Le 15e film de l’ONF à être nommé aux Oscars®

Court métrage sur le fonctionnement de l’univers. Grâce à la photographie, à l'animation, aux effets spéciaux, le spectateur est entraîné dans un voyage au pays des étoiles. Aux confins de la Lune, de Mars, de Vénus, de Mercure, il atteindra Pluton, à 6,4 milliards de kilomètres du Soleil; il ira au-delà des myriades de soleils les plus proches, jusqu'aux nuages d'étoiles et aux nébuleuses. Ce film a été choisi par Stanley Kubrick pour la réalisation d'effets spéciaux dans son film 2001 : l'odyssée de l'espace.
