Show Descriptions

After three years at an astronomy research station on a dying planet, a teenager bored by science is excited about leaving — just in time before the planet’s sun explodes! Witness the power of a supernova, explore a gaseous nebula, visit exotic pulsars and keep a safe distance from a black hole.

Climb aboard a magical cardboard rocket with two young adventurers and experience an up-close look at each of our solar system’s planets. Discover the secret to making this seemingly impossible trip, and gain a new sense of wonder about space along the way.

Near the end of the 20th century, unmanned probes were launched into the far reaches of the solar system. Exploration continues. Many of these robust spacecraft still are operational, beaming their knowledge back to Earth every day.

In Incoming!, embark on a journey on the trail of asteroids and comets, and see technologies that allow scientists to detect asteroids before they reach Earth. In Impact Earth, learn from recent NASA explorations how asteroid hunters seek new objects in the solar system and how ground-penetrating radar finds meteorites embedded in the Earth.

Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Moon Landing, July 20, 1969, this film traces achievements in space exploration from the launch of Sputnik to magnificent lunar landings and space flights.

Journey through one of the most mystifying phenomena in the universe, exploring the latest discoveries and examining recent scientific theories while viewing simulations of black holes and their cosmic effects.


From Earth to the Universe takes you beyond the Milky Way. You will learn about the history of astronomy, the invention of the telescope and today’s giant telescopes that allow us to continue to probe ever deeper into the universe. In NASA’s Journey to Mars, NASA’s fleet of Mars robotic explorers are paving the way for human exploration of the Solar System in the coming decades.

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