Discover what it means to live in today's connected world with Habitat Earth, an award-winning film that takes viewers on a journey through vast networks of life on Earth. Within, you'll learn how life affects our planet -- and how we benefit from our connections to the life forms that surround us.

Living networks connect and support life forms both large and small, from colonies of tiny microbes to pods of whales, behemoths of our oceans, and our ever-expanding human societies. Through the use of stunning visualizations of our natural world, plunge below the ocean's surface to explore dynamic relationships found in kelp forest ecosystems, travel beneath the forest floor to see how Earth's tallest trees rely on tiny fungi to survive, and soar to new heights to witness the intricate intersection between human and ecological networks.

Narrated by Frances McDormand, this award-winning original planetarium show from the California Academy of Sciences features stunning visualizations of both biological and human-built networks (and how they intersect), taking show-goers on an incredible, immersive journey through the interconnectedness of life on Earth.
