This full dome planetarium show is narrated by Frances McDormand. The show features stunning visualizations of the natural world, as it takes you below the ocean’s surface to explore the dynamic relationships found in kelp forest ecosystems, travel beneath the forest floor to see how Earth’s tallest trees rely on tiny fungi to survive, and journey to new heights to witness the intricate intersection between human and ecological networks.
