EARTHQUAKE:  EVIDENCE OF A RESTLESS PLANET

A sweeping geological journey, Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet explores the forces that transform the surface of our planet. Fly along the San Andreas Fault before diving into the planet’s interior. Journey back in time to witness the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and the break-up of Pangaea 200 million years ago. Visit the sites of historical earthquakes from the Mediterranean Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Learn how scientists and engineers collaborate to help society prepare for a safer environment — and a safer future. Data-driven visualizations illustrate Earth’s story, revealing how subtle motions and sudden ruptures have shaped our planet over eons — and how geological activity influences the course of human history.     Show length:  23 minutes

[Show length refers to the duration of the show, itself.  Each presentation includes the show and then a live night sky and question/answer period]
