Abstract:    The Sun, Our Living Star reveals the impact our star has on every aspect of our lives here on Earth.  Explore the Sun’s role in allowing and maintaining life, from photosynthesis to humanity.  Discover how the Sun dictates our days, seasons and years.  Delve into the history of the Sun’s impact on human religion and culture. Learn about the Sun’s dynamic nature — what appears as a flat disk in the sky is in fact a violent and evolving celestial body, burning 600 million tons of hydrogen every second.  The Sun, Our Living Star allows viewers to experience the Sun in a new way, with never-before-seen images of its turbulent surface in immersive fulldome format, revealing its power and variability in breathtaking detail.
