Black Holes

30–45 minutes
Price range $0–$8
plus museum entry $0–$15

Imagine a place where time stands still and the known laws of physics don't apply. 

A place where reality as we know it breaks down. Welcome to the world of black holes.

Narrated by Geoffrey Rush, this planetarium show brings to life all that is fascinating and extreme about black holes. What makes a black hole? How do we find them? Would you survive falling into one?

No longer the stuff of science fiction, the discovery of black holes is a triumph of modern science. Follow their story from an extraordinary idea of the late 18th century to their unexpected detection almost 200 years later.

Suitable for ages 8 years and up.

Please note: sessions during school hours may include school groups. 

Produced by Melbourne Planetarium.
