NEOWISE space telescope

The NEOWISE astronomical space telescope, seen in the IMAX® film Asteroid Hunters, assists scientists in locating near-Earth asteroids (NEOs) and comets. Using infrared light as it hunts for and finds asteroids by the heat they emit, it reveals objects in space like never-before.

Mark Boslough PhD in front of supercomputer screen

As seen in the IMAX® film Asteroid Hunters, Mark Boslough PhD studies a simulation on a giant computer screen to imagine the outcome of an asteroid strike. Computer models use an asteroid’s size and speed to predict the damage an impact would cause.
