Read the four texts below. There are eight questions about the texts. Decide which text (A, B, C or D) tells you the answer to the question. The first one is done for you. 



On view at the Great Lakes Science Center’s DOME theater, this film takes you alongside scientists as they seek to better understand Earth’s climate history by studying some of the world’s most hidden realms. Follow paleoclimatologist Dr. “Ancient Caves takes audiences to some of the most extraordinary and beautiful places on the planet as it follows a team of researchers searching for clues hundreds of feet below the earth’s surface,” says director Jonathan Bird, who specializes in underwater cinematography, in the release. “These deep underwater caves are like something straight out of a sci-fi film, and audiences can expect to see things they’ve never seen before. The film has something for everyone, whether it’s adventure, science or just pure beauty.”


Moseley and her team of cave explorers travel the world exploring vast underground worlds in search of stalagmite samples – geologic “fingerprints” – that reveal clues about the planet’s climate history. Their quest leads them to some of the world’s most remote caves, both above and below the water, in France, Iceland, the Bahamas, the U.S. and Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Together, they go where very few humans will ever go, revealing the incredible lengths scientists will go to study the unknown. 

The documentary is a triumph for the format, delivering both truly rare visual wonders and the kind of deliberate, substantive scientific education that hasn’t always made it through the cute-penguin montages…of past dome films.”



Both the groundbreaking projection system and Ancient Caves itself, in which the Minnesota museum was a production partner via the Giant Dome Theater Consortium, are testament to the Science Museum’s leadership role in the community of institutions with the capability to deliver experiences like this. Between the Laser Dome and the sleek planetarium at the new Bell Museum, Minnesotans in the Venn diagram overlap between dome screen fans and science lovers have never had it better. (You know who you are.)

In Ancient Caves, Minnesota even gets to see a bit of itself. Moseley, the Austria-based, star of the film, collaborates with University of Minnesota geochemist Larry Edwards to analyze her samples — so we get some sweeping shots of the West Bank in Minneapolis along with a brief descent into a cave that lies beneath southeastern Minnesota farmland.


The beautiful IMAX film is narrated by Bryan Cranston and is directed by Jonathan Bird. It took four years to make, shooting all over and under the world. “One visionary scientist is on an epic quest to understand Earth’s climate,” said Cranston during the narration.

“She just has great adventures and we get to follow along to places most of us will never ever get to go. You get to experience these places and learn about science in such a great venue,” Bird said. These remote places have never been shot on IMAX before. “The interesting thing about this is, just over five years ago this film would have been impossible. We didn’t the lighting technology, and we didn’t have the camera technology to do giant screen like a mile back in a cave,” he explained.

CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo asked Bird if he or anyone or from his team was scared when they were deep in the underwater caves. “We definitely weren’t because we’re all certified cave nerds and we love cave diving and this stuff is great.”
