Since 1995, scientists have discovered hundreds of planets orbiting other stars. These “exoplanets” are too far away to ever visit ourselves, but we can imagine what they might look like. In this full dome production, we can see planets with multiple suns, watery landscapes, and gushing volcanoes, all of them possible inhabitants of a distant solar system.
