“Black Holes: Point of No Return” brings the current science of black holes to the dome Planetarium screen. This cutting-edge production features high-resolution visualizations of cosmic phenomena, working with data generated by computer simulations. Audiences will be dazzled by striking and immersive animations of the formation of the early universe, star birth and death, and the collision of giant galaxies, plus a simulated flight to a super-massive black hole lurking at the center of our own Milky Way galaxy.
