FREE PLANETARIUM SHOW: Origins of Life

Recommended for ages 5 and up.

A motivational journey through time and a celebration of life on Earth, this film deals with some of the most profound questions of life science: the origin of life and the human search for life beyond Earth. Starting with the Big Bang – in chronological order – the show deals with prebiotic chemistry in the Universe, the formation of stars, formation of solar systems, and the first life on Earth. Furthermore Origins of Life covers the great extinctions as well as our search for (primitive) life beyond planet Earth. It features many recent discoveries related to life science, demonstrating to all that if there was ever a time that science made it greatest advances, it would be right now!

Show times are: 5:15 PM, 6 PM, 6:45 PM, 7:30 PM & 8:15 PM
