Narrated by Academy Award® Nominee Tom Wilkinson, Space Junk is the first movie to explore the exponentially expanding ring of debris that threatens the safety of our planet’s satellites, space launches and potentially even our spacewalking astronauts. Foremost expert Don Kessler, the “Father of Space Junk,” guides us through the challenges we face in protecting them, forging a new age of space discovery. Experience mind-boggling collisions, both natural and man-made, and soar from the stunning depths of Meteor Crater to an unprecedented view of our increasingly crowded orbits 22,000 miles above Earth.

Daily at 10 a.m., noon, and 2 p.m.
