Chronicle of a Journey to Earth


(Grades 4 to adult and families)

Travel to a unique planet — to call your home! Imagine that you are a traveler from the depths of interstellar space. As you approach our solar system, what will you find? Long before you reach the Sun, you traverse the Oort cloud, the deep freeze at the outermost reaches. You pass by the gas giants and their families of moons and rings. Finally, you reach the inner solar system, and the rocky worlds of Mars, Earth, Venus and Mercury. If you were looking for a place to call home, which world would YOU choose?

Chronicle of a Journey to Earth is a tour of the solar system from the outside in, focused on Earth and how it is unique. The viewer learns about each of the planets, as well as the difference between rocky and giant planets, and is introduced to dwarf planets and other objects in the solar system. Once on Earth, the viewer is taught about specific sky events that distinguish Earth from other planets: lunar phases, and lunar and solar eclipses. The viewer also learns about the way that Earth's seasons work and how they depend on Earth's tilt on its axis and its relationship to the Sun. These concepts are woven together into a documentary journey and help relate the information presented in the show to the lives of students, families, and the general public. Come along for the ride, and see our neighborhood in space from a new perspective.

Firefall


(Grades 6 to adult and families)

Throughout Earth’s violent history, impacts from comets and asteroids have mercilessly shaped its surface. The ancient barrage continues today; from harmless meteors – those brilliant streaks in the night sky, to mountain sized boulders wandering perilously close to Earth. Terrifying and majestic, these invaders from space are capable of utter destruction yet they have delivered life-giving water and most of the organic materials necessary for life. Life on Earth owes its very existence to these denizens of the solar system, yet it could all be wiped out in an instant. This ceaseless FIREFALL is a tangible connection to the universe beyond and is an ever-present reminder of our own humble beginnings in the hostile environment of space.
