The story of our home planet, answering the age-old question: how did our planet come to support life?  Going back billions of years to the Milky Way galaxy, this giant screen science documentary employs advanced data-driven, cinematic-quality visualizations to explore some of the biggest questions in science today: How did we become a living planet, and what does history tell us about finding other life in the universe among a billion other Earth-size planets scientists believe exist today? This program explains what it took to achieve Planet Earth’s wonder – and how the aftershocks of a supernova, the violence of Jupiter, a chance collision with the proto-planet Theia, the gift of a moon, and water combined to make life possible.

" Another world, another time, in the age of wonder. A thousand years ago, this land was green and good - until the Crystal cracked."

The Dark Crystal is a dark fantasy film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz. The plot revolves around Jen and Kira, two Gelflings on a quest to restore balance to the world of Thra and overthrow the evil, ruling Skeksis by restoring a powerful broken Crystal. 

It was released in North America on December 17, 1982 and received a mixed response upon its original release for various reasons, including parental concerns about its dark nature despite Henson's family-friendly Muppet franchise. Since then it has been regarded as a masterpiece and has earned a more positive reception becoming a favorite with fans of Henson and fantasy and remains as one of the highest-grossing puppet animated films of all time.
