This trip to the Southworth Planetarium will include two shows, "Destination Solar System" and "Habitat Earth."


HABITAT EARTH:  Living in a Connected World

Living networks connect and support life forms large and small—from colonies of tiny microbes and populations of massive whales to ever-expanding human societies. In the California Academy of Sciences’ latest original planetarium show, Habitat Earth, discover what it means to live in today’s connected world. Through stunning visualizations of the natural world, dive below the ocean’s surface to explore the dynamic relationships found in kelp forest ecosystems, travel beneath the forest floor to see how Earth’s tallest trees rely on tiny fungi to survive, and journey to new heights to witness the intricate intersection between human and ecological networks. 



A new program that blends science and science fiction, "Destination Solar System" takes audiences on an exciting late-21st century tour of the solar system. We'll visit the Sun, moon and many of the planets! Take a much closer look at our dynamic Sun and the wondrous worlds that revolve around it!  


* Also included will be a live night sky and question/answer period!
