Dynamic Earth

Explore the equilibrium between Earth’s climatic systems and what could happen if the balance is tipped.

Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth’s climate system, following a trail of energy that flows from our Sun into the interconnected systems that create our climate. You’ll ride on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and whales and fly into fiery volcanoes!

This fulldome planetarium show is the result of a two-year collaboration between Spitz Creative Media, the advanced visualization lab at the National Center of Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, and Thomas Lucas Productions Inc. Produced in association with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and NASA Earth Science.

Narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Liam Neeson.

This presentation at Morehead is supported by proceeds from the 2013 Cirque des Sciences.
