Journey into the unknown

Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Geoffrey Rush, this Planetarium show brings to life all that is fascinating and extreme in the world of black holes. Witness what would happen if you got too close to one, and see how a black hole is able to warp time and space.

No longer the stuff of science fiction, the discovery of the black hole has been a triumph of modern science – an incredible journey from imagination to reality.
