Hayden Planetarium Programs presents: SeismoDome: Sights and Sounds of Earthquakes and Global Seismology

Earthquakes happen frequently—but what causes them? Why are they unpredictable? What do they tell us about Earth’s deep interior? Explore these questions with collaborating Earth scientists, astrophysicists, and sound artists as they bring to the Planetarium dome immersive displays of earthquakes through time and also seismic waves moving through and around the planet. Through sight and sound, explore four earthquakes from the last decade, viewed from space and then from deep inside the globe. Experiencing these dramatic events in the Planetarium will transform the way you think about our planet.

This event features Sound Arts and CMC friends, faculty, and students! 

Admission to this event is free. Registration is required; call 212-769-5200.
