What is life, really? How did it begin on Earth and where else might we find it in our solar system and beyond? David Grinspoon, an astrobiologist at the Library of Congress, and Ka Chun Yu, curator of space science at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, offer a mind-blowing trip through space and time—set to live funky jazz. See our home in space from a cosmic perspective and search for clues to life, from the infant Earth where life first arose to the mysterious, promising depths of Saturn’s strangely vibrant moons. The journey includes previously unseen state-of-the-art digital visuals and musical interpretation by the House Band of the Universe. Definitely not an ordinary planetarium show, this is an evening that’s guaranteed to be “psychoastrobiofunkiliscious.”
