Planetarium Show: Atlas of a Changing Earth

This award-winning full dome show is the story of how a revolution in map-making techniques is shedding new light on our planet’s evolution in the wake of rising global temperatures.

Using stunning, latest-generation imagery from space, Atlas of a Changing Earth takes viewers into the dynamic processes causing coastal glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica to melt, and explores how rising seas could threaten coastlines the world over. These striking new images are produced by the confluence of satellites and supercomputers, revealing Earth in a degree of precise detail scarcely imagined a generation ago.
