FREE PLANETARIUM SHOW: Dynamic Earth
Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth’s climate system. With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes. Dynamic Earth explores concepts and terms essential to understanding the climate and the relationship of Earth and the Sun. Narrated by Academy-Award nominated actor Liam Neeson.
