Asteroids and comets have collided with our planet throughout its history, changing the course of life on Earth and shaping the world we know today.

Incoming! explores the past, present, and future of our Solar System and the landmark discoveries scientists have made sending spacecraft to visit tiny worlds. Cutting-edge visualizations bring data from current NASA missions to life while taking audiences on a ride through the dynamic story of our cosmic origins.

We’ll learn what these impacts from above can teach us—and how scientific advances may allow us to find and track cosmic threats before they reach planet Earth.
