Asteroid: Mission Space review


Next Post

We’ve just launched our new film in the 360 Showdome - Asteroid: Mission Space and we’ve been thrilled by the reaction so far.

The film, presented by National Geographic and narrated by Sigourney Weaver, takes you on a journey 65 million years in the making to discover how asteroids are both a danger and an opportunity for us here on planet Earth.

On launch night we were delighted to host our Explorer Pass-holders and some young reviewers, who settled in with some popcorn to watch our new film.

Here’s what Martha, 9, and Joe, 6 had to say about Asteroid: Mission Space:

‘We loved the seats in the Showdome because you are leaning back and the screen takes up the whole roof. When the film shows outer space it feels like you are there, zooming through the universe.

‘The film tells you about how dinosaurs died out after a big asteroid hit Earth millions of years ago and I was a bit worried because what if it happens again and makes everybody on Earth die at the same time?

‘But then the film explains how it’s okay because scientists have worked out ways to try to stop asteroids hitting Earth and tells you that most asteroids get burned up before they reach us anyway.

‘My brain got really full up when they said that there is stuff inside asteroids that could make fuel for rockets to get to faraway space. I wouldn’t like to be an astronaut going so far away because they showed you that Earth is a tiny dot when you are in deep space and what would you do if you wanted to go home?

‘We liked the film and we think it is really clever how you feel like you are actually in space.’

Wow! Well, we’re delighted that our little reviewers enjoyed their trip to the Showdome and we look forward to welcoming you soon too.
