Earth-Power of the Planet: Atmosphere

Presented By: Caltech Committee on Institute Programs

Venture into the stratosphere in a Cold War fighter and travel to Siberia and discover why Argentina is one of the stormiest places on Earth.  This program expertly demonstrates why our atmosphere is unique and utterly crucial for life. A BBC/ National Geographic Channel US/ZDF co-production.

This stunning high-definition movie will serve as the springboard for a lively discussion about the science behind the beauty and wonder of nature.

Xavier Levine, a graduate student in Environmental Science and Engineering at Caltech, will introduce the film and guide the post-screening discussion.

Recommended for ages 8 and up.

  This is a special one-hour school-day performance. For more field trip opportunities, or to make reservations, please call Mary Herrera at (626) 395-6059 or email at
