DID YOU KNOW. . . .The water that you drink (and all of the water on the planet!) has been recycling for 4 billion years. That same water could have been part of an ancient ocean, been inside an iceberg, flowed down a
mountain stream or even been inside a dinosaur!

Check out these photos! Can you spot any places that you recognize, visit, or maybe even live in? These maps show any places that are predicted to be affected by sea level rise in the next 50 years.

Sea level rise happens as a result of climate change and is already affecting many countries around the world. Follow the link in our bio to explore this map (made by @climatecentral ) and see if your town or city could be at risk from the impacts of climate change.

Climate Central reminds us that we face ‘far greater global threats from sea level rise and coastal flooding than previously thought, and thus greater benefits from reducing their causes’, so now is a time to take action and join the fight against climate change!

Together, we have the power to Restore Our Earth.

In support of Earth Day 2021's theme 'Restore Our Earth', we would like to remind you of a post from earlier this year were we discussed 'Ecosystem Restoration'

Have you heard of Ecosystem Restoration before? It’s all about finding solutions from nature to some of our major global crises such as biodiversity loss and global overheating. Through Ecosystem Restoration, we can transform the planet in a way that will see humans thrive in collaboration with the natural world, rather than seeing ourselves as separate from it.

Head over to #DynamicEarthOnline for a handy worksheet:https://fc8b1823-210a-485b-b2b1-337f4abade3b.filesusr.com/ugd/32ec29_483dae9a429841ca80989a647bb548ea.pdf

Chromatography is a way of separating a mix of things (a compound) by passing it through a liquid such as water 💦

This works because the different things which make up the compound move through the liquid at different speeds, and so spread out 🔍

What is Dynamic Earth?

Travel back to the beginning of time in our Time Machine before rocketing through the universe in a spaceship travelling billions of times faster than the speed of light and see stars explode on the other side of the galaxy. Feel the ground shudder as a molten lava flow speeds straight towards you and volcanoes throw clouds of ash and gas into the sky. The Polar ice caps are brought to within your reach giving you the chance to touch an iceberg for yourself. Fly high above ice cold glaciers and marvel at their power as they carve out entire continents. From your dizzying height it’ll feel so real you could almost be there before you soar from the sky and dive beneath the ocean in an epic 4D adventure across the globe. Experience films in the 360 degree ShowDome Cinema. New for 2019 watch Capcom Go! The Apollo Story - 50 years after the first moon landing, this film tells the story of the Apollo space programme, one of humankind’s greatest achievements. There are many films to choose from throughout the day, visit website to see daily schedule.

Congratulations to Dr Hermione Cockburn on her award of an OBE! Well done, Hermione well deserved!
Just to say how much we enjoyed the new showdome show "We are here". What really made it great was the hosts undeniable enthusiasm for the subject. Kept us all tuned in, and that's not the easiest thing for my 9 year old autistic son. So well done, very enjoyable 👏👏
Are there any restrictions on visiting just now?
It's very interesting the idea of what is a fascinating audio-visual experience that some people have... Is not going to be me the one who compare “Destino” with your performance “Dark Side of the Moon” Dynamic Earth (Dome Nights...) Judge for yourself.
Hi. Do you have luggage lockers suitable for small suitcases? Thanks
Brilliant family visit today, surprised to find so much unnecessary “pink and blue” in your gift shop - happy to discuss how you could support young explorers and future scientists to push back against gender stereotyping #letclothesbeclothes #lettoysbetoys
On September 21,2019 I was visiting When we left we were going to take lift to parking area. Having landed At Edinburgh Airport at 7:30 AM and with no sleep we went to a couple Of tourist attractions. I was exhausted And on our way to garage I didn’t realize The lift had 2 doors. I was leaning against what I thought was a back wall. When we arrived at a floor the “back Wall” opened up and I fell breaking my Femur. I want to thank the staff who comforted me while waiting for the Ambulance. Lisa, Luke, and I think Ross. You were the kindest, helpful people ever. Although I spent 8 days In the hospital after having surgery I Have a high regard for the Scottish Folks. I plan to come and visit Scotland Again without any accidents. Thank you for your support and Kindness❤️
We had a wonderful visit today and must mention your staff especially James on the main desk were outstanding, I love that you offer carers free admission and provide sensory bags for children who may need ear defenders etc, your cafe was very reasonably priced and your exhibits were fantastic x
