A sweeping geological journey, Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet explores the forces that transform the surface of our planet, complementing the stunning landscape art on view in The Rockies & The Alps: The Romance of the Mountains.
Fly along the San Andreas Fault before diving into the planet’s interior. Journey back in time to witness the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and the break-up of Pangaea 200 million years ago. Visit the sites of historical earthquakes from the Mediterranean Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Learn how scientists and engineers collaborate to help society prepare for a safer environment — and a safer future. 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.
Please note, the Planetarium will be closed for maintenance from August 19 thru October 2.
