Join scientists who are investigating the boundary between our Solar System and the rest of our galaxy in IBEX: Search for the Edge of the Solar System.
Designed for visitors with an appreciation for the challenges of space science and a desire to learn more about science research, IBEX: Search for the Edge of the Solar System follows the creation of NASA's Interstellar Boundary EXplorer. Audiences will get an in-depth look at the mission and how IBEX is collecting high-speed atoms to create a map of our Solar System's boundary.
Narrated by two inquisitive teenagers, audiences will hear from the scientists and engineers that developed the IBEX mission and created the spacecraft, and get the latest updates on the mission's discoveries.
This production is part of NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer mission's Education and Public Outreach program, led by Adler Planetarium, with visualizations from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.

===== ABOUT THIS FULLDOME TRAILER =====
Fulldome shows are meant to be projected onto a hemispherical dome surface typically found in planetarium theaters. Viewed on a flat screen, the imagery looks curved or warped at the edges; when projected using fisheye-lens equipment, the images look correct. This HD video was cropped from spherical-mirror warped dome masters to highlight the movie's theater-front sweet spot.
This preview is intended primarily to provide a taste of the show's content to planetarium professionals looking for shows to display in their theaters.
