SeismoDome: Sights and Sounds of Earthquakes and Global Seismology
November 19, 2016
Earthquakes happen frequently—but what causes them? Why are they unpredictable? What do they tell us about Earth's deep interior? Explore these questions through immersive displays of earthquakes and seismic waves, with Earth scientists, astrophysicists, and sound artists. Through sight and sound, explore four earthquakes from the last decade, viewed from space and then from deep inside the globe. Experiencing these dramatic events in the Planetarium will transform the way you think about our planet.
