Secrets of the Sun

An intimate look at the role the sun plays in the life of our solar system. From the nuclear forces churning at the heart of the sun to the mass ejections of solar material in to surrounding space, we will experience the power of the sun and its impact on the planets and ultimately life on Earth. We will trace the life cycle of the sun itself, going back to its beginnings and moving forward in time to its eventual death.

Cosmic Safari

Travel to yet undiscovered planets in the far reaches of space to search for life in the universe. In differing environmental conditions, you'll discover what living creatures might look like on worlds very different from our own. From the giant insect-like life forms on low-gravity planets to the highly muscular star-shaped creatures on high-gravity worlds, Cosmic Safari transforms scientific theory into exotic worlds filled with fantastic creatures never before imagined.

Run Time: 40 minutes

Age appropriateness: General audiences (not recommended for children under 5)
