Ice Worlds + Experience the Aurora
This presentation allows audiences to appreciate the delicate balance between ice, water and the existence of life, which has been a topic of exploration and discovery in science for generations. In travels to the Arctic and Antarctic regions of our planet, audiences will examine the ecosystems that live and thrive there and see how their survival is connected with our own. Beyond Earth, we’ll see how the existence of ice shapes the landscape and the natural systems on other planets and moons in our solar system. This program is narrated by two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Actress, Emily Watson. Experience The Aurora - Over seven months in the Arctic Circle, photographers using special digital cameras and all-sky lenses imaged the breathtaking beauty of the Aurora Borealis or “Northern Lights.” For the first time the aurora has been captured as it was meant to be experienced, as a display that covers the entire sky. This immersive presentation shares the science behind the aurora and tells the story of our quest to find and photograph one of nature’s most magnificent displays.
