National Geographic has announced a late-March Blu-ray debut for the space exploration documentary 'Journey to the Edge of the Universe.'

Building on images taken from the Hubble telescope, 'Journey to the Edge of the Universe' recreates the first accurate non-stop voyage from Earth to the edge of the Universe through the use of spectacular CGI technology, and explores the science and history behind the distant celestial bodies in the solar system.

Distributed via Warner Home Video 'Journey to the Edge of the Universe' will debut on Blu-ray March 31, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Tech details for the high-def version include a BD-25 single-layer presentation, with 1080p/VC-1 video and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround audio and subtitles (in English, French and Spanish).

There are currently no announced supplements, but we'll keep you posted if we receive any future spec updates.

Suggested retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $28.95.
