Screening – INCOMING! and STAR TREK BEYOND (Bay Area)

2016 marks Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary. In celebration of this historic event the Visual Effects Society Vision Committee in collaboration with the California Academy of Sciences and the VES Bay Area Section present INCOMING!

Asterorids and comets have collided with our planet throughout its history, changing the course of life on Earth and shaping the world we know today. Narrated by George Takei, INCOMING! explores the past, present, and future of our Solar System and the landmark discoveries scientists have made sending spacecraft to visit tiny worlds. In this latest planetarium show from the California Academy of Sciences, cutting-edge visualizations bring real-time data from current NASA missions to life while taking audiences on a ride through the dynamic story of our cosmic origins. Discover what these impacts from above can teach us and how scientific advances may allow us to find and track cosmic threats before they reach planet Earth. Q&A to follow with Incoming! Producer (and VES Vision Committee member) Tom Kennedy and Team Members Matt Blackwell, Mike Schmitt & Jeroen Lapre

followed by a special opening weekend screening of Paramount Pictures’ STAR TREK BEYOND
