Event details

Part of our new Space Zone, the Sphere is a digital globe and show space where visitors can enjoy family-friendly presenter-led science shows.


Show topics change regularly so there's always something new to learn!

Currently showing: Climate Emergency

Right across the globe, people are declaring a climate emergency. But why? And are we running out of time to act?

Humans have walked the planet for a mere fraction of Earth’s existence yet, due to our activities, the planet is changing at an unprecedented rate which pushes the natural balances of the Earth to its limits. With carbon dioxide levels increasing, what effect does this have on our climate and is it too late to stop it?

In this presenter-led show, our Science Explainers will challenge your view of Planet Earth using images and satellite data on the Sphere. Take a unique look at the blue marble that we call home..
