Birth of Planet Earth (FREE)

Admission Purchase general admission

Join us for Birth of Planet Earth, which tells the twisted tale of our planet’s origins. Scientists now believe that our galaxy is filled with solar systems, including up to one billion planets roughly the size of our own. This program employs advanced, data-driven visualizations to explore some of the greatest questions in science today: How did Earth become a living planet in the wake of our solar system’s violent birth? What does its history tell us about our chances of finding other worlds that are truly Earth-like?

Recommended for ages 8+; 24-minute show plus Q&A. Capacity is currently limited to 50 seats per show (40%). Masks are required in the Planetarium until further notice. Advance reservations are strongly encouraged.
