A 3D IMAX Film

SPACE JUNK 3D (USA, 2012, 38 min.)

Special Advance Screening For more than 50 years, we’ve launched our dreams into space. We’ve successfully brought back astronauts, space shuttles, moon rocks, images of the universe and a massive amount of data. At the same time, we’ve left a lot behind. Countless pieces of metal, glass and plastic from satellites, rockets and other manufactured and natural objects are orbiting directly above us. These objects, which can be as large as a bus, travel at high speeds, often crashing into each other or falling back into the Earth’s atmosphere. This film explores the effects that these collisions have on our daily lives and introduces potential initiatives to clean up space. Narrated by Tom Wilkinson. Directed by Melissa R. Butts. Produced by Melissa R. Butts and Kimberly Rowe.

Introduced by filmmaker Melissa R. Butts. Discussion with filmmakers Melissa R. Butts and Kimberly Rowe and Andrew Johnston, geographer, National Air and Space Museum, follows screening.
