Earth is a planet shaped by life. From the forests that help stabilize our climate, to the winds carrying life-sustaining water and oxygen to far-flung parts of the globe, the fingerprints of life are visible even from many light years away. Living Worlds invites you to journey through space and time to examine life as an essential quality of our home planet.

Narrator Daveed Diggs takes you on an exploration of the co-evolution of life and our planet, revealing the ways in which life has transformed Earth’s surface and atmosphere over billions of years. Along the way, you’ll see how light and color can help us spot a living world, even from great distances. As we ponder what forms life might take in the Solar System and beyond, Living Worlds encourages us to consider how a deeper understanding of our own planet can aid in the search for life across the cosmos, and to reflect on ways we can partner with our living world to ensure our continued survival.

For its contribution to the popularisation of science – so close to Brno Planetarium visitors – the show Living Worlds, which we are presenting in its Czech premiere, received the Director’s Award at the Fulldome Festival Brno 2022, which is a guarantee that it will be worth it.
