Planetarium Show -- The Center of Our Galaxy: Stars and Black Holes @ UW Harry C Vaughan Planetarium

If you go out on a clear evening and look up, you will see thousands of stars. But there is something amazing that you will not see: a Black Hole. What do you imagine when you close your eyes and picture a Black Hole? Exploration? Adventure? Excitement and discovery? Perhaps even an idea of a Wormhole, transporting you from one time and place to another. Black Holes capture our imaginations, but what are they really? This morning is an exploration of the nature of stars and Black Holes and how they affect our lives.
After the show, we will celebrate spring and (hopefully) the warmer weather that it brings with Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream.
