The Radford University planetarium is offering a special free showing of the full-dome educational film "Earth's Wild Ride" at 10:30 a.m. this Saturday, April 5, 2014.

Created by the Immersive Earth Project, "Earth's Wild Ride" takes the audience on a trip into the future, looking back at society's old home, Earth, and comparing it with their current home, a colony on the moon. Viewers will experience a wild canyon ride, an ice age winter, and flowing with hot lava.

The film lasts one hour. The planetarium is located on the Radford University campus in Curie Hall, Room 43 (ground floor), parking is available nearby.
