Earthquakes happen frequently—but what causes them? Why are they unpredictable? What do they tell us about Earth's deep interior? Explore these questions with collaborating Earth scientists, astrophysicists, and sound artists as they bring to the Planetarium dome immersive displays of earthquakes through time and also seismic waves moving through and around the planet. Through sight and sound, explore four earthquakes from the last decade, viewed from space and then from deep inside the globe.
