Ladies and gentlemen: WATER FALLS.
Finally, a few months following the exasperations of a federal government shutdown in October 2013, our newest Science On a Sphere movie is out! Launch events around the country kicked off the release, starting with a day of showings and special talks at The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, New York on January 25 and continuing on January 29 and 30 with two days of events at The Space Foundation in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Below you'll find a collection of links to various media stories about the movie and the people behind it. By all means, please get in touch if you have any questions!
