Show Descriptions

Robo-kids Cy and Annie, and their dog, Armstrong, get more than they expected from their class field trip. Explore the sun, Earth and moon. Race along on the moon’s surface, collect an asteroid sample and survive a solar storm.

Explores Earth’s great life support system: the global climate. With visualizations based on satellite data and computer simulations, this story follows a trail of energy that flows from the sun. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and whales, and into roiling volcanoes.

This is an exploration of icebergs in the Arctic, massive glaciers and the Antarctic wilderness. Learn how science helps us discover environmental conditions that affect our future on Earth.

This is a light-hearted look at the ancient Greek mythology behind the winter constellations filled with funny and engaging characters who will entertain and educate.

Inspired by the goals of NASA’s Origins Program, “Oceans in Space” searches for places in the universe where conditions are favorable for life to exist. From the volcanic vents on Earth’s ocean floor, to Mars, to the Jovian moon Europa, you’ll explore the diversity of life on our planet and beyond.

Pink Floyd’s rock album The Wall is presented in an immersive HD animation of color and surround-sound.
