Journey to an Asteroid — with NASA!

Experience a real NASA Mission — “To an Asteroid and Back”! — through a brand new feature-length documentary film. Then actually MEET the young man who made this award-winning movie!

James Tralie is a NASA filmmaker, Princeton graduate, baseball player, actor, animator, and geoscientist! (And all-around great guy.) James will introduce his film — and then answer audience questions, such as:

What’s it like to make movies for NASA?

What can we discover about our origins by capturing rocks from space?

Are we in danger of being destroyed by this or other asteroids?

And — what’s next for NASA?

Don’t miss your chance to see the Nevada premiere of this outstanding movie at the Planetarium — and discover how NASA accomplished one of its trickiest missions ever. To reach an asteroid. Collect samples.  And, for the first time in history, return these treasures to Earth.
