Digital Planetarium: Supervolcanoes
The scene was 74,000 years ago, on the island of Sumatra. A volcanic eruption triggered the sudden and violent collapse of a vast regional plateau.
Toba, as the volcano is known today, was the largest volcanic eruption in the last 25 million years. But Earth has seen far larger. 250 million years ago, an eruption in whats now Siberia lasted a million years and was probably responsible for the greatest episode of mass extinction in Earths history.SUPERVOLCANOES is an immersive planetarium show that looks back at rare classes of eruptions that have marshaled the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. The program moves beyond Earth to explore the impact of giant volcanic eruptions around our solar system. Audiences will fly down to Neptunes frigid moon Triton, and onto the ultimate volcanic world: Jupiters moon Io. On a visit to a legendary North American hot spot, Yellowstone National Park, the film asks: can a supervolcano erupt in our time?Language: GermanThis movie is also available via audioguide in English, Spanish, Russian, Arabian and Mandarin.Audioguides can be obtained directly at the digital planetarium.Digital Planetarium:every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday:2 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.every Saturday and Sunday:11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.Folder Tickets: 5, (excl. entrance fee) | Visitors under 19 years 3,available at the info-desk (entrance hall) and online
