Black Hole

Saturday night, Kelly and I went out to the “Clark Planetarium”:http://www.clarkplanetarium.org/ . We just missed a seating for “Magnificent Desolation”:http://www.imax.com/magnificentdesolation/ , but we were just in time to hit their new “Black Holes”:http://www.clarkplanetarium.org/FilesChanging2004/NowPlaying.html#BlackHoles . Quite a good show. Some great graphics that take advantage of the 3d-dome to help you feel what it’s like to be at a black hole, the feel of passing the event horizon. It attempts to help understand relativity, in somewhat layman’s terms, although I think it was glossed over a little too much.

They also made one mention of white holes, when describing the theory of the wormhole/bridge but didn’t explain them at all 🙁

Overall it was a very enjoyable experience, and would recommend checking it out. For all my Star Trek geek friends, the narration is done by the guy who played ‘Q’, no biggie for me, but he did a good job.
