"The Story of Earth 3D" (1/1/2019 - 30/6/2019)


The Story of Earth 3D

This is the story of a remarkable planet, unlike any other yet found across deep space.

Born from star explosions, it was sculpted by violent collisions in space. Although once being a hostile ball of molten rock, it had transformed itself into a nurturing place where life eventually emerged. This planet is not millions of light years away. We all live and depend on it. It is our home - the Earth.

In the 3D OMNIMAX Show "The Story of Earth 3D", stunning and complex visualisations based on the latest scientific modelling will take audiences back in time to the origins of our planet as they explore the extraordinary chain of events that made life not only possible but sustainable. They will also travel forward to present day, to meet a team of geologists venturing the globe looking for clues that help piece together the greatest story on Earth - the story of Earth itself.

Stromatolites in Shark Bay
Stromatolites are rocks originated from the layered growth of cyanobacteria which are some of the earliest life forms on Earth. Many scientists believe that life emerged in shallow oceans which looked like today's Shark Bay in Western Australia.

Geology doctoral student Tara Djokic studied fossilized stromatolites in the Pilbara which is home to some of the Earth's oldest rocks dating back to 3.5 billion years ago. Next to the stromatolites she found a rock which cast doubt on the theory of marine origin of life.

Finding in Pilbara
The rock Tara found turns out to be geyserite which forms in geothermal hot springs - on land. The find suggests that life might have first emerged on land in areas of volcanic geothermal activity.

Having 130 active volcanoes, Iceland is alive with geothermal activity and is the ideal place to verify Tara's discovery..
