Back To The Moon For Good, an exciting, educational full-dome show narrated by award-winning actor Tim Allen, premieres at Los Alamos Nature Center 2 p.m. Oct. 24 and 25.

The 25-minute digital film highlights the history of exploring the moon and provides an insider’s look at the teams vying for the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE, the largest incentivized prize in history.

Back To The Moon For Good begins with a tour through the history of lunar exploration, tracing back to the 1960s and 1970s. We hear from some of the teams racing to land a robotic spacecraft on the moon and win the Google Lunar XPRIZE. The audience is taken on a successful launch, landing, and tour of the lunar surface. The show ends with an enticing visualization of a future settlement on the moon.

The stunning visuals and compelling narrative of the show explain the importance of the Google Lunar XPRIZE in encouraging today’s space entrepreneurs and innovators to collaborate toward building a new space economy while inspiring the next generation to “shoot for the moon.”

Tickets may be purchased by phone or at the nature center and are $6 for adults and $4 for children. This movie is not recommended for children under four years old.
