Great Balls of Fire: Comets, Asteroids and Meteors
Now On Exhibit through January 3, 2016
 
Great Balls of Fire: Comets, Asteroids, and Meteors explores the mysteries of these celestial objects. The threat of a catastrophic impact from an asteroid or comet is a staple of popular culture. If there was a dinosaur killer in Earth’s past, is there a human killer in our future? What are the chances and how do we assess the risks? For that matter, what are asteroids, comets, and meteorites, and where do they come from? These and many other questions are answered in Great Balls of Fire. Add to your out-of-this-world adventure through the power of IMAX 3D with two spectacular space themed films: HUBBLE 3D “Hubble 3D” and “Space Station 3D” at AutoNation ® IMAX 3D Theater. This exhibit and the IMAX space films and related programs are supported by a grant from the John H. Rau Space Education Fund of Community Foundation of Broward for Beyond the Kármán Line: A Comprehensive Learning Initiative in Space Science.
