We Are Stars! is a family-friendly adventure that starts with a little stardust, building up over millions of years to become our world and us.

Narrated by Lord of the Rings’ Andy Serkis, this time-space adventure spans billions of years and includes the formation of hydrogen, nuclear fusion in stars, formation of asteroids, synthesis of carbon, creation of our own solar system and the emerging of the very first living cells on Earth.

It’s an incredible ride that explores the secrets of our cosmic chemistry and explosive origins with a cast of lovable characters! Is it true that we really are made of stardust? We Are Stars! Learn about this cosmic transformation in the Tru-8K Burke Baker Planetarium.

The award-winning full-dome film We Are Stars! complements the many displays of atoms and molecules in the Welch Chemistry Hall.
