Wonders of the Universe exhibit details the uniqueness of Earth, the Solar System, and the Universe. Can life exist when it has no form of beginning?

This animation was created to show a comet's eccentric tumble as it travels through the solar system, and its inevitable destruction as it near the sun.

Conceptual models created in collaboration with ICR's Dr Jake Hebert

Model showing correct axis of the moon nearing eclipse, and the correct axis of Earth

Model of Solar System showing Scale, Order, Axis of Rotation, and Heat Zones. If Earth's magnetic field was oriented at a different axis, comprised of other elements, or if Earth's rotational speed were different, could life exist?

How unique is an eclipse? If the size of the moon, or the distance to the moon were any different, would we actually experience an eclipse?

The average distance between the Sun and Earth is 108 times the Sun's diameter.
The average distance from Earth to the moon is approx. 108 times the moon's diameter.
The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of Earth. Coincidence or a necessary relationship of scale that allows for life?

OmniGlobe display of The Great Flood

Animation of The Great Flood sequence was created using data points, and guidance by ICR's Dr. Timothy Clarey (hundreds and hundreds of data points, researched across years of study)
