Black Holes, Psychedelic Music Trips and WTC Steel at the Science Center

Scientific evidence indicates that black holes reside in the center of perhaps every galaxy, including our own! The IMAX Dome Theater of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center is currently showing a film entitled Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity, which presents the birth of these anomalous entities via supernovae (exploding/imploding stars).

Using actual scientific data, and a revamped multiple-digital-projection-system, this cosmic voyage takes you to a virtual version of the real center of our Milky Way Galaxy - all the way to the event horizon (edge) of our black hole, and beyond.

For all intents and purposes you actually experience what it would be like to travel there. If you have ever seen the classic Carl Sagan series Cosmos and remember the scenes when he travels the universe in a space ship - this is the furthest evolution of that idea. Of course if you really went inside the black hole at the center of our galaxy, you'd be crushed and/or spaghettified.

Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity will be warping space-time in The Eugene Heikoff and and Marilyn Jacobs Heikoff Dome Theater throughout the summer.

With the price of admission you also gain entry to the science center exhibits, including the Black Hole: Space Warps & Time Twists installations. One entitled Black Hole Adventure allows you to use a control panel to fly into a black hole, among other guided adventures.

On Saturday March 3rd a new interactive IMAX experience premiers: Rock The Dome. It is compared to the laser light shows they used to have in the IMAX theater years ago, but the computer generated graphics of Rock The Dome are far superior.

Based on the preview I saw before watching Black Holes, they focus on creating a sense of movement and take you to some intense psychedelic plateaus. The music on their roster includes The Beatles, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Van Halen, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Rush, U2, and Jimi Hendrix. But they plan to let the audience choose the songs!

Just outside the Dome Theater is a memorial entitled Project 2997 WTC Steel, consisting of a 778 pound piece of the fallen World Trade Center, which collapsed in the attacks of 9-11-01, in New York City.

The memorial pays tribute to all of the causalities who lost their lives that day, hi-lighting the sacrifices of first responders. The memorial coincides with another film playing in the Heikoff Dome Theater called Rescue, which follows the noble work of first responders after the earthquake in Haiti.
