BC Planetarium to see "Black Holes: Other Side of Infinity

Anyone want to join me in going to the BC Planetarium to see "Black Holes: Other Side of Infinity"  on Thursday evening, March  20th from 7:30 to 8:30 PM at the William M Thomas Planetarium. Description below. Tickets go on sale Friday  February  21st. I understand these shows sell out. You can purchase your tickets by following the link below or at BC college ticket office.

https://tkt.xosn.com/tickets/TicketHome.dbml?DB_LANG=C&DB_OEM_ID=16400&_MODE_=PERFORMERCATEGORY&SALE_TKT_PERFORMER_ID=94380&SALE_TKT_SALE_CATEGORIES_ID=99146

Doors will open 30 minutes before the show starts for seating and will be closed during the one-hour program with no late admittance. Tickets are available for $6.50/adults and $4.50/seniors and children 5-12 years old + $3 processing fee from the Bakersfield College Ticket Office only (tickets will NOT be sold at the door) starting February 21st . The BC Ticket Office is in Business Services [masked]) and the William M Thomas Planetarium is on the second floor, northwest end of the Math-Science Building, Room 112

The one-hour show will begin with a short tour of the evening sky using the planetarium's Goto Chronos star projector followed by the 23-minute all-dome presentation from Denver Museum of Natural Science called "Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity" using our Spitz SciDome projector. This show brings the current science of black holes to the dome screen. Supported by grants from NASA's high-energy GLAST telescope project and the National Science Foundation, this cutting-edge fulldome projection features high-resolution, animated visualizations of cosmic phenomena, working with real data generated by computer simulations. [A visualization (as opposed to a Hollywood-type movie) uses only real data and computer simulations of real processes, not some artist's imagination.] Black Holes shows viewers the inside of a black hole for the first time by integrating the equations of Einstein's General Relativity with video game technology. Each second of the black hole visualization took 90 hours of computation on the world's fastest supercomputer (at NCSA--Univ Il)!

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 supermassive black hole lurking at the center of our own Milky Way Galaxy. NASA description (link will appear in a new window).
