Global cycles of air, water, land and life make Earth a dynamic world that is greatly impacted by human activity. Inside the Global Zone, guests will view the ultimate “big picture,” the first ever HD Magic Planet® exhibit. It’s a 3-dimensional globe that stands 6 feet in diameter and features interactive audio-visual technology. Guests can see how the Earth transfers matter and energy across the globe through the oceans and learn how changes in one ecosystem can affect the entire planet.
