CLEVELAND (October 11, 2021) – Great Lakes Science Center is your ticket to other worldly adventures this fall as we take you from underwater caves at the bottom of the sea to the upper regions of Earth’s atmosphere.
“Ancient Caves” is the latest giant screen feature now showing in the Cleveland Clinic DOME Theater, an epic science adventure set in spectacular caves around the world. The film takes audiences on a quest for clues about Earth’s ancient climate history as paleoclimatologist Dr. Gina Moseley, and her team of expert cave divers, voyage to the world’s most stunning and remote caves to retrieve stalagmites – geologic “fingerprints” that provide information to help us better understand the climate patterns of today.
“Ancient Caves” takes viewers into some of the most hidden and little-known caves in the world, including an underwater cave known as Devil’s Hole outside of Las Vegas, a location so restricted that more people have walked on the moon than dived in its waters! Moseley and her team explore caves in France, Iceland, the Bahamas, the U.S. and Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, leaving audiences in awe of what lies deep beneath the Earth’s surface and the lengths scientists will go to study the unknown.
“Ancient Caves” is now showing at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. DOME Theater tickets are on sale at GreatScience.com and can be purchased separately, or as a combo ticket with general admission to the Science Center.
From the dark depths of the world’s hidden caves to the darkness of space, guests can rocket up into orbit in the Science Center’s newest special exhibition, Above and Beyond, presented by Parker Aerospace!
Above and Beyond explores the future of aerospace technology and air travel in an interactive experience of unprecedented demonstrations showcasing advances in aviation and aerospace from the first powered flights to the newest innovations.
Within the exhibition, guests can step into a simulated space elevator that takes them to the edge of the universe, design and test a supersonic jet to face off in a virtual high speed flying competition, experience a flight simulation with motion-sensing technology to get a sense of what it’s like to fly like a bird, and discover concepts for future aircraft.
Above and Beyond is now open and runs through Sunday, January 2, and is included with general admission to the Science Center.
Above and Beyond is presented by Boeing and produced by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with NASA and the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
(Editor’s note: The Science Center’s fall schedule is 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The Science Center will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays and for all home day Browns games.)
