Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet

Repeats weekly until November 20, 2014
Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building
The ASU Planetarium will present the full-dome astronomy show “Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet” at 7 p.m. each Thursday from Sept. 4 to Nov. 20 in the Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building. Admission is free to everyone.

“Earthquake” explores the forces that transform the surface of our planet. After a stunning flight over the San Andreas Fault, audiences will travel back in time to experience San Francisco’s infamous 1906 earthquake. 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. Finally, viewers will see how scientists and engineers help society prepare for a safer future.The show is sponsored by ASU’s Hispanic Serving Institution-Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (HSI-STEM) grant, and there is no admission charge for anyone.
