Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity

 7:30 PM, May 13, 14, 20, 21

Cross a cosmic threshold into the bizarre realm of a black hole, a place so exotic that space and time are warped. Experience a thrilling ride past the horizon and into a black hole, simulated from scientific data and rich with stunning, colorful visualizations. Feel the pull of the supermassive black hole lurking in the heart of our Milky Way galaxy… it’s the closest you’ll ever get to experiencing the real thing!

Narrated by Academy-Award nominated actor Liam Neeson, this cutting-edge production features high-resolution visualizations of cosmic phenomena, working with data generated by supercomputer simulations, to bring the current science of black holes to the dome screen.

Come be dazzled with striking, immersive animations of the formation of the early universe, star birth and death, the collision of giant galaxies, and a simulated flight to a super-massive black hole lurking at the center of our own Milky Way Galaxy.
