Cosmic Collisions

A planet is surrounded by colliding debris in space
Available to license for your planetarium, Cosmic Collisions delves into the destructive but beautiful collisions that fuel our universe.

A radical change from our peaceful night sky, Cosmic Collisions presents the spectacular result of gravity pulling together planets, stars, and galaxies. 

Witness the explosive encounters that ended the Age of the Dinosaurs and gave birth to new stars, but also created conditions essential for life on Earth—the Sun's warmth and ocean waves.

Narrated by Robert Redford, Cosmic Collisions invites audiences to experience an extraordinary vision of these forces that continue to affect our universe.


 “A journey I was sorry to end.” 
The New York Times 

“As entertaining as Cosmic Collisions is… it’s the science that went into it that is most impressive.”
Time Out New York
