Gaia at Life LISTING

Marvel at Planet Earth this winter at Life Science Centre in Newcastle when art meets science.

It’s wowed audiences across the globe and now you too can marvel at Gaia - a stunning, seven-metre recreation of Planet Earth, and one of only five permanent exhibits in the world.

Created by British artist, Luke Jerram, the exhibition uses detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface to provide a unique opportunity to view our planet floating in three dimensions.

The installation aims to create a sense of the Overview Effect, described by astronauts as a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

Included in a science centre ticket, visitors can view Gaia by standing, sitting, or walking underneath it, and from different angles in the science centre.
