"Black Holes: Journey into the Unknown" Planetarium Show

      Black holes are mysterious celestial objects where all the known laws of nature break down. Near a black hole, space is warped and time seems to stand still.

      "Black Holes: Journey into the Unknown", narrated by Geoffrey Rush, introduces Eistein's theory of General Relativity and explains the discovery, both theoretical and observational, of black holes.

      There are scores of black holes in our Milky Way Galaxy, and a supermassive black hole lying at the center of most large galaxies, including our own. This planetarium show helps us imagine what it might be like to experience one of these gravitational monsters up close.
