In Saturn's Rings with NASA! A Journey for IMAX theaters
In Saturn’s Rings, narrated by LeVar Burton, is a ground-breaking giant-screen documentary film. Using only real images, the film's simulated spaceflight flies you through the real Saturn and its moons, more intimately and with more stunning detail, than has ever been possible before. Feel as if you were actually there, because we were. This is real.

NASA scientists from the Saturn mission join the filmmakers for an extended preview of this remarkable film, and go behind-the-scenes of NASA's mission to Saturn & Titan.

Learn about NASA's mission, what they learned about Saturn's great moon Titan, and how this stunning film was made. Also on the panel will be Jason Harwell and Val Klavans, Co-Producers. Enjoy Q&A with filmmakers and NASA scientists to close the presentation.
