Birth of Planet Earth

A Fulldome Planetarium Program
$5 per person
Multiple dates in Dec and Jan : see Schedule
For ages 8 and up

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.
