Fragile Planet: Earth’s Place in the Universe

April 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Fragile Planet combines scientific visualization with movie-making magic, highlighting Earth’s special place in the universe as the only known haven for life.

Develop a renewed appreciation for our fragile planet through the lens of astronomy, as Sigourney Weaver guides audiences on an immersive excursion that explores a universe filled with the possibility of life.

Fragile Planet starts with an astronaut’s view highlighting Earth’s unique regions. The journey then continues to the Moon, Mars, and beyond the Milky Way to search for habitats that might host extraterrestrial life. The show’s theme — that Earth is the only known haven for life, and thus is important to protect — echoes the themes of biodiversity and sustainability.

The Allen F. Blocher Planetarium is located in the Science Building, 2001 Fourth Avenue, on the UW-Stevens Point campus. The planetarium consists of a 7.3m diameter dome that houses a DIGISTAR LITE projector (installed in 2020).
