Digital Planetarium: Life - A Cosmic Story
How did life originate on Earth?
To answer this basic question the show begins in a redwood forest, with the sounds of wind and life.
One redwood looms large, until we approach its branches and enter one of its leaves, adjusting our perspective to microscopic scales inside a cell. We see a pared-down version of its inner workings, learning about the process of photosynthesis and the role of DNA. This scene sets the stage for the story of life.We then leap backward billions of years to the origin of elements themselves. The early Universe contained mostly dark matter, which drew hydrogen and helium together to form the first stars. The carbon and heavier elements required by living organisms came from generations of stars.Language: GermanThis movie is also available via audioguide in English and Japanese.Audioguides can be obtained directly at the digital planetarium.Digital Planetarium:every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday:2 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.every Saturday and Sunday:11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.FolderTickets: 5, | Children and youth under 19 3,available at the info-desk (entrance hall) and online
