Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity
Location: Rollins Planetarium, 1 College Street, Young Harris, GA
There's a place from which nothing escapes, not even light, where time and space literally come to an end. It's at this point, inside this fantastic riddle, that black holes exert their sway over the cosmos...and our imaginations. This exciting full dome production, narrated by Academy-Award nominated actor Liam Neeson, brings the current science of black holes to the dome screen. Zip through other-worldly wormholes, witness the collision of giant galaxies, and experience a simulated flight to a super massive black hole lurking at the center of our own Milky Way Galaxy. Cutting-edge science and Einstein's theories fill in holes along the way, providing the most complete picture yet on this mysterious phenomenon. Can you feel the pull?
Presented at 8 PM Adults; $3 Children: $2. Call 800-241-3754 or visit the Young Harris College website.
