How did life on Earth begin? This tantalizing question forms the basis of this H.R. MacMillan Space Centre's planetarium star theatre show.
Begin your journey by shrinking down to enter a single redwood leaf, and discover that all life on Earth shares a common ancestry. Then, travel through time to witness key events since the Big Bang that set the stage for life. Along the way, you will see two scenarios for the dawn of life on early Earth, and discover how our planet has changed since those microscopic beginnings. Narrated by Jodie Foster. Trailer
