Info

Join us for a behind the scenes look at the making of the Academy's newest planetarium show: Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet. You will go on a journey that takes you through the whole process from inception to production. A sweeping geological journey, Earthquake explores the forces that transform the surface of our planet. After a stunning flight over the San Andreas Fault, audiences travel back in time to experience San Francisco's infamous 1906 earthquake. 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. This is the Academy's fourth planetarium show since reopening the Academy under one living roof. This event takes place in the Koret Auditorium at the San Francisco Public Library Main.
