Angelo State University’s Planetarium will present two full-dome public astronomy shows during its early Spring 2017 schedule beginning Jan. 26, in the Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building, 2333 Vanderventer St.
Thursdays through March 9, “Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity” will run at 7 p.m. and “Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet” will run at 8 p.m.
All the shows are open to the public with admission prices of $3 for adults and $2 for children, active military and senior citizens. ASU students, faculty and staff are admitted free.
“Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity” features an immersive digital theater program which incorporates three-dimensional visual effects on the subject. The show is narrated by actor Liam Neeson.
“Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet” takes audiences on a geological journey and seismic experience. During the show, audiences will fly over the San Andreas Fault before diving into the planet’s interior, travel back in time to witness both the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and the break-up of Pangaea 200 million years ago and visit the sites of historical earthquakes from the Mediterranean Sea to the Pacific Ocean. Data-driven visualizations will illustrate the Earth’s story, revealing how subtle motions and sudden ruptures have shaped the planet over eons – and how geological activity influences the course of human history.
