Planetarium: “Supervolcanoes”

8:00pm CDT April 20

Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building

The ASU Planetarium will present the full-dome public astronomy show “Supervolcanoes” at 8 p.m. each Thursday, March 23 through May 11, in the Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building, 2333 Vanderventer St.

“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 the Earth. The program also moves beyond Earth to explore the impact of giant volcanic eruptions around our solar system. Audiences will fly down to Neptune’s frigid moon, Triton, and onto the ultimate volcanic world: Jupiter’s 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?
