Field Trip – Bakersfield College Planetarium
March 15, 2018
A 24-minute all-dome video from Spitz Creative Media – This show takes you on a journey through the solar system to experience the beautiful planets and satellites up close as you search for places with liquid water. You start by seeing how the solar system formed from a gas cloud in our galaxy and then experiencing the early Earth before the oceans formed. In the present day you will explore Earth, with its vast oceans that make life possible.
Then you fly by the other planets and moons one by one in search for liquid water. Each investigation of a planet is accompanied by full descriptions of its characteristics, such as atmosphere, temperature, and composition.
Spectacular pictures invite students to draw their own conclusions about the other orbiting bodies in our solar system: Is there water out there? Is there life beyond Earth?
