Sunstruck takes us on a journey to discover the wonders of our magnificent sun. Its incredible energy has supported life on Earth for millennia, but it can also threaten our technology and way of life. Explore its structure, energy source and how solar activity can create the beautiful Northern Lights. Then travel to the distant future to discover our sun’s connection to the universe’s cosmic cycle of life and death! After the show we will explore upcoming solar eclipses.
