The Spaceship Earth Story

Progress City, U.S.A. posted a great video of the Spaceship Earth story.

The video features a brief but nice walkthrough of the attraction’s development, from early consultations with the Annenberg School at USC through to the engineering process.

Spaceship Earth is the iconic golf ball in Epcot at Walt Disney World. Inside the 18-story geodesic sphere is a 15-minute dark ride that takes guests on a time machine-themed journey thru advancements in human communication. From the origins of prehistoric man to the invention of the alphabet, forward to the creation of the printing press and then to computers.

In February 15, 2008 they updated the narration, I wasn’t crazy about it but I do enjoy the voice of Dame Judi Dench.
