Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity

Running time: 24 minutes

Currently in distribution to more than 100 theaters worldwide, Black Holes: the Other Side of Infinity, is one of the most successful fulldome shows ever produced. Narrated by Academy Award nominated actor Liam Neeson, this cutting-edge production features high-resolution visualizations of cosmic phenomena, using data generated by computer simulations, to bring the current science of black holes to the dome screen.

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 to a super-massive black hole lurking at the center of our own Milky Way Galaxy. The program is accompanied by an extensive Educator's Guide.

Made possible by Thomas Lucas Productions, in collaboration with Denver Museum of Nature & Science, NOVA and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications; supported by grants from NASA's high-energy GLAST telescope project, and the National Science Foundation.
