Birth of Planet Earth

“Birth of Planet Earth” is a planetarium full-dome show that tells the twisted tale of our planet’s origins.

Scientists now believe that our galaxy is filled with solar systems, including up to a billion planets roughly the size of our own.

The film employs advanced, data-driven, cinematic-quality visualizations to explore some of the greatest questions in science today: How did Earth become a living planet in the wake of our solar system’s violent birth? What does its history tell us about our chances of finding other worlds that are truly Earth-like?

Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, the maximum number of guests will be limited to allow for social distancing. Reservations are required for all Planetarium shows. For more information, please visit our website at or contact the office at 903.468.8650
