“Birth of Planet Earth”

In the fiery beginnings of our young solar system, worlds are born and obliterated.  Gas giants stir chaos.  And a young sun vents its rage.  How did Earth survive against all odds?

This eye-opening fulldome documentary tracks the perilous path our planet took in its early years through advanced, data-driven, cinema-quality CGI.

It explores some of the greatest questions in science today: How did Earth become a living planet?  What does its history tell us about our chances of finding other worlds that are truly Earth-like?
