Framingham State University Planetarium
Our monthly public planetarium series begins with a screening of Dynamic Earth, the newest addition to our lineup of fulldome films. Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth’s great life support system: the global climate. With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere.
Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes.
After the show, Dr. Vandana Singh, Associate Professor of Physics and Earth Science at Framingham State University, will expand upon some of the major concepts presented in the film.
