The new show Incoming is hosted by Roswell Museum and Art Center, 1011 N. Richardson Ave., in the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium. The show 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 real-time data from current NASA missions to life while taking audiences on a ride through the dynamic story of our cosmic origins. Along the way, audiences discover 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. The showing is from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. For more information, call 575-624-6744.
