Black Holes


The attraction of Black Holes is more than just gravitational. These mysterious graveyards of dead stars have fascinated generations.

The Burke Baker Planetarium’s new feature Black Holes explores the history, physics, and mystery of black holes. Narrated by actor John de Lancie (“Q” in the Star Trek TV series), this space adventure features rich, expansive panoramas and incorporates several of the latest scientific theories about how black holes are formed and where they are hiding now.

Witness the bending of light, the skewing of perception, and the dizzying descent into a black hole. This show incorporates some of the most visually stunning three-dimensional effects ever created for the planetarium. Add to that a sound effects track and 5.1 surround sound mix by George Lucas’ Skywalker Sound Studios and you have an incredible sensory experience.
