Check out Firefall and Dynamic Earth at the Planetarium!

FIREFALL:

FirefallThroughout Earth’s violent history, impacts from comets and asteroids have mercilessly shaped its surface. The ancient barrage continues today; from harmless meteors – those brilliant streaks in the night sky, to mountain sized boulders wandering perilously close to Earth. Terrifying and majestic, these invaders from space are capable of utter destruction yet they have delivered life-giving water and most of the organic materials necessary for life. The program, which features the stunning artwork of Joe Tucciarone, YSU alum and noted space artist, is appropriate for general audiences.

 

DYNAMIC EARTH Dynamic Earth:

The Earth is a living, dynamic planet. How did it get that way? What happens if our global climate changes? This immersive program, narrated by Liam Neeson, takes the audience above Earth to look at how our atmosphere moves, below the ocean to seek how currents move and how the carbon chain begins, and to Venus, the perfect example of a climate system gone wrong.
