Incoming! – Asteroids, Comets, and the Hard-Hitting Stories of Our Cosmic Origins

Embark on a journey back in time and across the Solar System, following the paths of asteroids and comets that have collided with Earth — and those that roam far from home.
 
 

Explore the past, present, and future of our solar system!

In the California Academy of Sciences’ original planetarium show, Incoming!, audiences will discover how asteroids and comets have collided with our planet throughout history, changing the course of life on Earth and shaping the world we know today.

Viewers will embark on a dynamic journey on the trail of asteroids and comets, get an up close look at the advanced technologies that allow scientists to detect asteroids before they reach Earth, and visualize historic space events billions of years in the making—all within an immersive, all-digital dome that brings the captivating story of our cosmic origins to life like never before.

Narrated by George Takei, Incoming! explores the past, present, and future of our Solar System and the landmark discoveries scientists have made by sending spacecraft to visit tiny worlds.

A fulldome show for planetariums and digital dome theaters.
