Subject: Asteroid: Mission Extreme Opens

Opening Saturday, August 6, 2016
Flint, MI - Longway Planetarium presents 
Asteroid: Mission Extreme. This show is sponsored by William Hentgen. The show takes audiences on an epic journey to discover the possibilities that asteroids present for space travel. Using stunning visuals and state-of-the-art computer graphics, the film presents the fascinating idea, based on real science, that asteroids could be used as stepping stones to other worlds, veritable “way stations” in space enabling us to cross the entire solar system. The show opens at Longway Planetarium on Saturday, August 6, at 2:30pm and will play daily until December 9, 2016.

Asteroid: Mission Extreme is best for patrons aged seven and over. It’s narrated by Sigourney Weaver. It begins with dinosaurs and their extinction due to an asteroid hitting earth and how asteroids may be a way of keeping astronauts alive when they explore space. As with any venture in outer space, the challenges involved with making this idea a reality are enormous; however, a mission this extreme could ultimately lead us to learn how to protect our planet and how to successfully inhabit other worlds.

Explore what it would take for astronauts to reach an asteroid and then tame it for our use, as well as how such an extraordinary adventure could benefit humankind, in Asteroid: Mission Extreme.

Produced by National Geographic and Sky-Skan. Running time: 25 minutes. Suitable for family audiences and school groups.
