Presented by UAA Planetarian and NASA Solar System Ambassador, Omega Smith

This fulldome show from Thomas Lucas Productions was developed in collaboration with Denver Museum of Nature & Science, NOVA and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. Narrated by Academy-Award nominated actor Liam Neeson, this cutting-edge production features high-resolution visualizations to bring the current science of black holes onto the dome.Audiences will be dazzled with striking, immersive animations of the formation of the early universe, star birth and death, the collision of giant galaxies, and a simulated flight into the super-massive black hole lurking at the center of our galaxy.

"Black Holes" is one hour in length, consisting of a 23-minute fulldome film followed by a presentation from a professional scientist. Ticket reservations are available online only. Remaining tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the door on the day of the show. The planetarium will open for seating 30 minutes before the start of each show. You must be in the theater 10 minutes before the show starts. Reserved seats will be released after this time to stand-by customers. There is no entry after the show begins.
