Approximate Running Time: 25 minutes

Release Date: July 2011
With the general theme of evolution this fulldome production takes its audience on a 13.7 billion year whirlwind journey. The audience will realize that the universe continuously evolves and so do the stars. Yet, the death of a star is not just an end but also a new beginning because the exploding supernovas enrich space with heavier elements that lead to the birth of new stars and new planetary systems. This is the same way that our own Solar System was born some 4.6 billion years ago and then our planet evolved through the continuous geotectonic activities that shaped the Earth’s surface. Simultaneously the Earth became the cradle of biological evolution that led eventually to the development of our own human civilization that is still evolving.
