About this show

»Earthquake – Evidence of a Restless Planet« invites viewers to a fabulous journey into Earth's history. It illustrates the forces that have shaped our planet. Starting at San Francisco, a city situated in the San Andreas Fault and steeped in history, the trip takes the audience back in time to experience the 1906 earthquake, which all but extinguished the place. Visualizations driven by science data demonstrate how subtle motions and sudden ruptures have changed the Earth's surface, and how these forces have influenced the course of human history. Today, clever engineering solutions help society to confront the forces moving the Earth's crust.
