If we condensed the 13,800,000,000 years of the history of the universe and transferred them to the time scale of an annual calendar, human life would correspond to 0.2 seconds.
Welcome to planet Earth: a place of blue nitrogen skies, oceans of liquid water, cool forests and soft meadows; a world where the hum of life is clearly heard.” Carl Sagan.
Under the motto ‘know to value and value to protect’, the Terra Extraordinària exhibition is created from the objectivity of science as a multisensory space in which to marvel at the extraordinary existence of our planet, and where to learn to understand its functioning and its secrets, an essential question to understand the environmental problems that it currently faces and assume effective solutions to build a sustainable future.
This great exhibition will completely occupy the third floor of the Museum and will be built following sustainability criteria. For this reason, prior to its launch, the Museu de les Ciències wants to develop a presentation exhibition as a preview of this great project.
The exhibition takes a journey from the creation of the universe to the formation of the solar system, the formation of our planet and the appearance of life. The planet Earth occupies a leading place in the exhibition, explained through each of the interconnected systems that compose it: geosphere (earth), biosphere (life), hydrosphere (water) and atmosphere (air). The human species also has its space in the exhibition, where the anthropic effects that it has created and have come to change the environment that surrounds it are explained. The last area of the exhibition shows a presentation of what will be the project that is being developed for its implementation on the third floor of the Museum.
