Our star, the Sun, supports all life on this planet and without it we would not be here. The Sun is the heart of our Solar System. But now that our society becomes more and more technologically dependent we do need to monitor it closely because solar storms and space weather can affect our satellites in space and even our electronics here on the ground.

Travel back to the beginning of time and experience the birth of the Sun. Discover how it came to support life, how it threatens life as we know it, and how its energy will one day, billions of years from now, fade away.

This is a show if you are curious about...

  • The stars in the night sky.
  • Why the Sun shines.
  • If the Sun can be dangerous.
  • What will happen to the Sun in the future.
  • What is there inside the Sun.
  • How the Sun can affect life here on Earth.
  • How solar weather can affect electronic devices.

This show is suitable for:

  • Kids and Teens

Through collaboration with planetariums around the world we are able to offer this show in Swedish, English  and Russian.
