Asteroids and comets have collided with our planet throughout its history, changing the course of life on Earth and shaping the world we know today.
Incoming!, the original planetarium show from the California Academy of Sciences, explores the past, present, and future of our Solar System and the landmark discoveries scientists have made sending spacecraft to visit tiny worlds. Cutting-edge visualizations bring real-time data from current NASA missions to life while taking audiences on a ride through the dynamic story of our cosmic origins. Along the way, audiences discover what these impacts from above can teach us — and how scientific advances may allow us to find and track cosmic threats before they reach planet Earth.
The show opens with a lizard's-eye view of the Arizona desert and the Barringer Meteor Crater. This scar on Earth's surface formed almost 50,000 years ago when an asteroid smashed into the landscape and vaporized on impact. Barringer is one of about 200 impact sites, including the one that gives clues about the demise of the dinosaurs — and how a far-traveling visitor from space transformed life on Earth
