The award-winning Supervolcanoes
examines rare and occasionally catastrophic eruptions, both on Earth and elsewhere in the Solar System
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 planet Earth. On a visit to a legendary North American hot spot, Yellowstone National Park, the film asks: can a supervolcano erupt in our time? The program then 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. Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Intended Audience: Children/Families, Adults
