See the dark side of our placid watchman in the sky at this excellent-as-ever show (don't worry about the nausea warning—close your eyes for a second and you’ll feel better). Seats shake as the domed ceiling fills with awesome simulations of our moon’s violent creation by a Mars-size meteor colliding with Earth. Then you experience the perilous journey to there from Earth and, finally, get to see the sunrise from space.
