Go on in and have a gander at some photography of the event courtesy of Popular Science. You'll see some interesting things such as the world's largest IMAX screen followed by the world's largest baby (relax, it's only a model).

If you happen to be big fan of looking at holes in the Earth that we as a species made then you'll probably enjoy the other holes that we as a species did not make.
