Prepare to be moved at Earthquake, a new exhibit and planetarium show at the California Academy of Sciences. Experience a high-magnitude jolt in an earthquake simulator, fly over and into our dynamic planet in an immersive planetarium show, and explore the impacts of the largest disaster in San Francisco’s history—the 1906 earthquake and fire. Along the way, you’ll see how earthquakes fit into the larger story of plate tectonics, a constant process that builds mountains, moves continents, and creates the landscape in which life evolves.
