Planetarium movie: The Sun, Our Living Star

Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre, Vantaa

  • 1.2.2022–26.6.2022

The film entitled “The Sun: Our Living Star” tells the story of the power plant of our solar system whose energy has created the winds and weather variations on our planet for 4.5 billion years already.


One way or the other, all life on Earth depends on the Sun, our closest star. The film will tell you about the Sun, its history and its relationship with Earth and mankind. You will see pictures of the Sun as never seen before and learn about its secrets.

All throughout history, people have been interested in the Sun. The solar rhythm has been used for estimating the length of day and for creating calendars. The Sun has been a central element in the creation of several cultures and religions, and in the development of science. While the Sun is unique for us, it is nevertheless part of a bigger category in the universe – the stars. The film tells about the Sun and its power, but also of its future.

The narration of the planetarium shows is in Finnish, but voice-overs in Swedish, English and Russian can be listened to with headphones.

Planetarium movies are shown every day. Daily programme is available on Heureka’s website.
