Birth of Planet Earth
Saturdays at 7:30 pm

This immersive digital planetarium 
program tells the twisted tale of our 
planet’s origins while exploring 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 Earth's history tell us about our chances of finding other worlds that are truly Earth-like?

According to Tim Florian Horn, Director of Zeiss-Großplanetarium: “Birth of Planet Earth looks at the very beginning of our planet and the unique requirements that enabled life to evolve. The new program helps us to develop a better understanding of the history of our very own existence on this pale blue dot we call home."
